Whenever some info is uploaded to a hosting account or downloaded from it, some web site traffic is produced which is a characteristic that every single hosting plan has. It's furthermore among the attributes you should check, since how much website traffic quota you'll need depends upon what you need the account for. The website traffic is mainly generated by downloads including site visits. Essentially, whenever somebody visits your site, the web pages are downloaded from the server to his or her computer and they're then displayed by their web browser. It's of course important to be aware that uploads count as well, and every time you transfer bigger files from your computer system to the server, some traffic will be generated too. Different providers can have different names for this feature, for instance traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, however all of them refer to the same thing - the total amount of incoming & outgoing information created for a period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Hosting
Our hosting plans
are designed with the notion to handle the traffic produced by any website that can function in such an account. If you have one or a few different small or medium-sized web sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly traffic allowance whatever the content you may have - plain text or lots of images, for instance. The stats in your hosting Control Panel provides you with elaborate details about the site traffic generated by every single website and the total amount for the account altogether. The numbers are updated in real time and indicate both the daily and the monthly usage, thus you will be aware of how much data is transferred to and from your website hosting account anytime. The first day of each month your counter is reset, but you'll still be able to see the traffic statistics for the past months, which will give you an idea how your sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering that our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans
are quite efficient, we have decided not to set any type of restriction for the monthly site traffic that an account can generate. It is our understanding that if you purchase a web hosting plan that features a great deal of computing power, your web sites will most probably have many visitors and since every visitor makes a part of the website traffic, you can end up having unavailable sites if there is any limit for this feature. With truly unlimited website traffic, you can be sure this can never happen. For your benefit, you can monitor the content being downloaded as well as the site traffic that is generated for every single domain with monthly, daily and hourly numbers that will inform you on how popular your web sites are. You can even view particular webpages and files that have generated most of the traffic in your semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
The monthly website traffic allowance for our Linux VPS servers
is proportionate to the other server’s resources. If you aquire a more powerful server, it is more likely that you'll manage a well-known website or even a variety of sites, so you will have much more website visitors. For this reason, the greater plan you aquire, the greater monthly traffic quota you will get. We'll contact you as soon as you get to 90% of that amount, in order for you to have the required time to take some action and either upgrade your package or optimize your web sites and decrease the site traffic that they generate until the counter resets the subsequent month. When you decide to update, this can be done via your billing Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. You'll even be able to keep track of how much website traffic your server has already made and what amount is left until you get to the monthly limit. This information will be accessible in the VPS management panel where you're also able to restart your server and check out the use of all the other system resources for example HDD space, CPU load or physical memory usage.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
Using a dedicated server
, you will have a very powerful website hosting solution at your disposal and the traffic quota you will get suits all the other characteristics. Your server will be able to generate terabytes of traffic each month, so that regardless of the kind or number of websites that you host, you will never need to worry for them being unavailable as a result of insufficient traffic. To be on the safe side however, we'll give you the opportunity to upgrade this feature if needed. We will inform you well in advance when you get close to the restriction, so that you'll have the option to update or lower the traffic by optimizing your content and avoid any interruption of the work of your sites. You'll be able to view the consumed and remaining site traffic for the current month from the administration panel that we provide. The information there includes all of the incoming as well as all the outgoing transfers, which includes software setups and / or updates. In comparison, a hosting Control Panel can give more detailed information, but only for the website traffic to and from a web hosting account, not your server altogether.
