The monthly traffic characteristic, that’s sometimes also identified as bandwidth or data transfer, identifies the overall volume of info that can be uploaded to your shared hosting account and downloaded from it monthly. Your website traffic is generated generally by site visits - when someone comes across your site, the pages they see are downloaded from your website hosting server to his / her computer system or mobile device and they're shown by the internet browser. What counts towards the website traffic generated is the overall size of these webpages, thus the more website visitors you get for a given period of time, the more traffic will be produced. In addition to the site visits, file uploads are also counted towards the entire monthly transfer which means that any time you upload web site content as well as other files with a file manager or an FTP application, they'll also generate some site traffic. The counter resets on day one of every month and it is not related to the date you've registered as well as the date you have renewed the hosting plan.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
All of our shared hosting were created with the idea to take care of the website traffic made by any type of website that can run in such an account. When you have one or multiple small-scale or medium-sized sites, you will not be limited by the monthly website traffic quota whatever the content you may have - plain text and / or numerous images, for example. The stats inside your hosting Control Panel gives you in-depth info about the website traffic produced by each and every website and the total amount for the account altogether. The figures are updated in real time and indicate both the everyday and the monthly usage, thus you'll know how much info is transferred to and from your website hosting account at any time. The first day of each and every month your counter is reset, but you'll still be able to see the traffic statistics for the previous months, which will inform you on how your websites perform.
