Whenever some data is uploaded to a shared website hosting account or downloaded from it, web site traffic is produced which is a feature that each hosting plan comes with. It's also among the characteristics you have to take a look at, since what amount of traffic quota you'll need is based on what exactly you need the account for. The website traffic is mainly generated by downloads including site visits. In layman's terms, when somebody visits your website, the web pages are downloaded from the server on their computer and they're subsequently shown by their web browser. It's of course recommendable to be aware that uploads count as well, hence any time you back up large files from your computer system to the server, some web site traffic will be generated as well. Different companies sometimes have different names for this feature, for example traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, still all of them refer to the same thing - the total amount of incoming and outgoing information produced for a period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Website Hosting
All our shared website hosting plans were designed with the concept to take care of the site traffic generated by any type of site that can function in such an account. If you have one or a couple of small-scale or medium-sized sites, you will not be limited by the monthly traffic quota whatever the content you have - plain text or a great number of images, for instance. The stats inside your hosting Control Panel will give you comprehensive info about the traffic produced by each web site and the amount for the account altogether. The numbers are updated live and indicate both the daily and the monthly usage, therefore you will know how much info is transferred to and from your web hosting account anytime. The very first day of each and every month your counter is reset, but you will still be able to see the site traffic stats for the previous months, that will inform you on how your websites perform.
