The monthly website traffic feature is usually referred to as data transfer or bandwidth as well, but all of the aforementioned terms refer to the same thing - how much information can be transferred to and from your shared hosting account. The web site traffic can be produced in two ways, the more apparent one being website visits. If somebody goes to your site, their web browser requests and downloads the webpages from your website hosting server then displays them on their end. The more website visitors you have, the more outgoing traffic is generated from your hosting account. Considering that this characteristic includes the overall web site traffic, not just the website visits, you shouldn't forget that incoming traffic is counted too. Which means that website content as well as other files that you upload to your account through a file manager or an FTP program are measured towards your account allowance. Your transfer is typically checked every month and the counter resets on the very first day of each month irrespective of your actual registration date.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
All of our shared hosting were designed with the notion to take care of the traffic made by any website that can exist in such an account. When you currently have one or a few different small or medium-sized web sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly website traffic quota whatever the content you may have - plain text and / or a lot of images, for instance. The statistics inside the hosting Control Panel provides you with in-depth information about the traffic generated by each web site plus the total amount for the account altogether. The numbers are updated in real time and display both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, thus you will know how much data is transferred to and from the hosting account at any time. The first day of each and every month your counter is reset, but you will be able to view the website traffic statistics for the previous months, that will give you an idea how your websites perform.
