Anytime any info is uploaded to a cloud web hosting account or downloaded from it, some website traffic is produced which is a feature that every single hosting plan includes. It's also one of the features it is important to check, since how much site traffic allowance you'll need depends on what exactly you need the account for. The website traffic is mostly produced by downloads and this includes web site visits. Basically, every time somebody opens your web site, the pages are downloaded from the server to his or her computer and they are then displayed by their web browser. It is also recommendable to know that uploads count as well, so that whenever you transfer larger files from your pc to the server, some web site traffic is generated too. Different providers sometimes have different names for this feature, for example traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, yet they all refer to the same thing - the amount of incoming & outgoing data generated for a period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Web Hosting
All our Linux cloud web hosting are designed with the idea to handle the website traffic made by any site that can function in such an account. In case you have one or multiple small or medium-sized sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly website traffic quota regardless of what content you have - plain text or many images, for instance. The statistics inside your hosting Control Panel will give you comprehensive info about the website traffic generated by every single site along with the amount for the account altogether. The amounts are updated in real time and indicate both the everyday and the monthly usage, which means that you will be aware of how much info is transferred to and from the website hosting account at any moment. Day one of each month your counter is reset, but you will be able to view the traffic stats for the previous months, which will give you an idea how your web sites perform.
