The monthly traffic function is usually called data transfer or bandwidth as well, but all of these names refer to the very same thing - how much info can be transferred to and from a shared website hosting account. The web site traffic can be generated in just two ways, the more noticeable one being site visits. If somebody goes to your website, their Internet browser requests and downloads the web pages from the hosting server and then shows them on their end. The more website visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is generated from your hosting account. Considering that this particular characteristic includes the entire website traffic, not only the site visits, you should not forget that incoming traffic is counted as well. Which means that website content and other files that you upload to your account via a file manager or an FTP software are measured towards the account allowance. Your transfer is generally tracked per month and the counter resets on the very first day of each and every month regardless of your actual date of registration.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Hosting
The monthly site traffic quota for our Linux VPS hosting is proportionate to all of the other server’s system resources. If you buy a more powerful server, it's much more likely that you will host a popular site or even multiple websites, consequently you will have a lot more website visitors. By reason of this, the higher plan you aquire, the greater monthly traffic allowance you will have. We will contact you as soon as you reach 90% of that amount, in order for you to have enough time to take action and either upgrade the plan or optimize your sites and lessen the website traffic that they generate until the counter resets the subsequent month. If you choose to upgrade, you can do so via your billing Control Panel and with only a couple of mouse-clicks. You will also be able to monitor what amount of traffic your server has already made and how much is left until you get to your monthly limit. This data will be accessible in the VPS administration panel where you'll also be able to restart your server and view the employment of all other system resources like disk space, CPU load and physical memory usage.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Web Hosting
With a dedicated server, you'll have a very powerful hosting solution at your disposal and the website traffic allowance you will get suits all of the other features. The server can generate terabytes of traffic each month, therefore whatever the kind or number of websites that you host, you'll never need to worry for them being unavailable due to insufficient traffic. To be on the safe side though, we'll give you the opportunity to upgrade this feature if needed. We will inform you in advance if you get close to the limit, so you'll have the option to upgrade or lower your website traffic by optimizing your info and avoid any interruption of the work of your web sites. You can monitor the used and remaining website traffic for the current month via the control panel that we provide. The data there features all of the incoming and outgoing transfers, including software installations and / or updates. In contrast, a hosting Control Panel features more detailed data, however only for the site traffic to and from a web host account, not the server as a whole.
