The monthly traffic feature, which is at times also identified as bandwidth or information transfer, indicates the overall volume of information that is uploaded to your shared hosting account and downloaded from it each month. Your site traffic is produced primarily by web site visits - every time somebody comes across your website, the pages they view are downloaded from your hosting server to his / her machine or mobile device and they are shown by the browser. What counts for the traffic generated is the size of these webpages, so the more site visitors you get for a given period of time, the more web site traffic will be generated. Along with the site visits, file uploads will also be counted towards the entire monthly transfer i.e. if you upload website content or some other files through a file manager or an FTP software, they will also generate some website traffic. The counter resets on the first day of each month and it is not related to the date you have subscribed as well as the date you've renewed the web hosting plan.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
All our shared hosting are designed with the notion to take care of the website traffic made by any type of site that can run in such an account. If you have one or a couple of small-scale or medium-sized web sites, you will not be limited by the monthly website traffic quota irrespective of what content you may have - plain text or lots of images, for example. The statistics inside the hosting Control Panel will give you comprehensive details about the traffic generated by each and every site as well as the total amount for your account as a whole. The stats are updated in real time and show both the everyday and the monthly usage, which means that you will be aware of how much information is transferred to and from your website hosting account at any time. The first day of each and every month the counter is reset, but you'll be able to view the traffic stats for the previous months, which will give you an idea how your websites perform.
