Anytime some info is uploaded to a shared hosting account or downloaded from it, website traffic is produced and this is a characteristic that every single hosting plan has. It's also among the attributes it is important to check out, since what amount of website traffic allowance you'll need will depend on what exactly you need the account for. The website traffic is primarily produced by downloads which includes site visits. Essentially, anytime someone visits your web site, the pages are downloaded from the server to their computer system and they are subsequently shown by their internet browser. It's of course recommendable to know that uploads are considered too, so any time you back up larger files from your pc to the server, some website traffic will be generated as well. Different suppliers often have different names for this feature, for example traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, however they all apply to the very same thing - the amount of incoming & outgoing information created for a particular period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
All our Linux shared hosting were created with the idea to handle the site traffic produced by any kind of website that can function in such an account. If you have one or a few different small-scale or medium-sized web sites, you will not be limited by the monthly traffic allowance regardless of what content you may have - plain text or lots of images, for instance. The stats in the hosting Control Panel will give you comprehensive info about the site traffic produced by every single website plus the amount for your account altogether. The amounts are updated live and indicate both the everyday and the monthly usage, therefore you'll know how much information is transferred to and from your hosting account at any moment. Day one of every month your counter is reset, but you'll still be able to view the traffic statistics for the previous months, which will show you how your sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated servers are quite efficient, we've decided not to set a restriction for the monthly site traffic that an account can generate. It is our understanding that if you need a web hosting plan that features a lot of computing power, your sites will presumptively have lots of visitors and as each and every visitor generates a part of the site traffic, one may end up having inaccessible web sites if there was a limit for this particular feature. With truly unlimited website traffic, you can be sure this can never happen. For your benefit, you will be able to keep track of the info being downloaded in addition to the traffic that is generated for each domain with monthly, daily and hourly stats that will inform you on how popular your sites are. You'll be able to even view particular webpages and files which have generated most of the web site traffic in your semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
The monthly website traffic quota for our VPS servers is proportional to the other server’s system resources. When you get a more powerful server, it's likely that you'll host a very popular website or even multiple websites, hence there will be more website visitors. Because of this, the greater package you aquire, the higher monthly site traffic quota you'll get. We will inform you whenever you get to 90% of that amount, so that you will have the required time to take some action and either update your package or optimize your sites and reduce the site traffic that they generate until the counter resets the next month. When you decide to upgrade, you can do so through your billing Control Panel and with just a few mouse-clicks. You'll even be able to monitor the amount of website traffic your server has already generated and how much is left before you reach the monthly limit. This info will be accessible in the VPS management panel where you're also able to restart your server and check the use of all the other system resources like hard disk space, CPU load and physical memory usage.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
The monthly site traffic quota which comes with our dedicated server plans is sufficient for any kind of web site irrespective of its type. Your web applications can make terabytes of site traffic, which warrants that all your visitors will never notice any type of error message on your website as a result of not sufficient quota like it could happen with many other types of website hosting. In addition, we leave the possibility to upgrade the traffic amount open, however it is very unlikely that you will ever need it even if you intend to manage a file sharing website or a video streaming portal. The server administration Control Panel gives you accurate real-time info how much data has been transmitted for the month so far, and what amount of it is left before you get to the cap. We'll also inform you any time you get to 90% of the allowance in order to be on the safe side and prevent any downtime of your websites. The data in this panel includes the entire traffic, plus software downloads, therefore it is more precise than the one in your current web hosting Control Panel where you're able to view details only about the traffic developed by world wide web content.
