The monthly traffic feature, which is at times also called bandwidth or data transfer, identifies the overall volume of data which is uploaded to your cloud web hosting account and downloaded from it monthly. The website traffic is produced generally by site visits - when someone comes across your site, the webpages they see are downloaded from the website hosting server to his / her computer or smartphone and they're displayed by the web browser. What counts towards the website traffic generated is the overall size of these pages, consequently the more visitors you get for some period of time, the more web site traffic will be produced. Along with the site visits, file uploads will also be counted towards the entire monthly transfer which means that if you upload site content or some other files using a file manager or an FTP software, they'll also produce some site traffic. The counter resets on the first day of each month and it's not related to the date you have registered or the date you've renewed your website hosting package.

We have selected all of the features of our cloud web hosting plansin such a way, in order to help the progress of every website hosted on our advanced cloud platform. The website traffic that your account can generate makes no exception, so with a web hosting package from us, you will not need to worry about the amount of content being transferred to and from your account any time. You'll be able to host various small and medium-sized web sites and ensure that the monthly traffic quota will not be a problem for their growth. We also offer you comprehensive hourly, daily and monthly statistics which will give you additional details for the site traffic that a particular web site produces or what type of page/file is being downloaded the most and produces the most traffic. Such information will help you organize the management of your websites as well as your marketing strategies better.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Considering that our Linux semi-dedicated packages are very efficient, we have made the decision not to set any limit for the monthly website traffic that an account can produce. It is our understanding that if you buy a hosting package that comes with a lot of computing power, your websites will most probably have numerous visitors and given that each visitor produces a part of the site traffic, you may end up having unavailable web sites if there is any limit for this particular characteristic. With truly unrestricted traffic, you can be sure this won't happen. For your benefit, you can monitor the content being downloaded as well as the traffic that is generated for each domain with hourly, daily and monthly stats that will inform you on how popular your websites are. You will be able to even see unique pages and files which have generated the most website traffic in your semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS
The Linux VPS packages that we offer have a monthly traffic allowance proportionate to the resources they come with. The more hard disk storage and computing power a server offers, the more likely it is you will host more sites on it, for that reason the site traffic you will be able to use increases with each and every plan. If you need more traffic at some point, you will be able to enhance the plan via your billing Control Panel with just a couple of clicks and the extra system resources, including the greater traffic quota, will be added to your account. You'll also be able to view what amount of data has been transferred to and from your virtual server any time. To be on the safe side, we'll update you whenever you reach 90% of your quota in order to give you sufficient time to take action and decrease the traffic or upgrade the package if necessary. Through your control panel, you will be able to view the website traffic statistics for every domain or subdomain in your VPS account.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Hosting
Considering how powerful our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages are, the data transfer that you will have each month will be enough for any kind of web site whatever the number of its visitors, even if you offer file or image hosting. You'll have a quota of terabytes of website traffic each month and given that you will not share the server with anyone else, that quota will be accessible only for your websites and web apps. We'll inform you when you reach 90% of the allowance so that you'll be able to react and either optimize your websites to decrease the site traffic they make, or extend your limit. It's very unlikely that you may ever need more than what we will offer you, still we won't restrict the development of your websites, that's why we leave the chance to add additional website traffic open. The dedicated server packages come with a control panel where you will be able to see what amount of site traffic has been generated to date for the current month and how much is left until you get to the limit. Considering the fact that these figures feature software setups as well as all updates, they're more correct compared to numerous hosting Control Panel stats that include only the traffic made by sites.
