The monthly traffic feature, which is at times also referred to as bandwidth or data transfer, indicates the total amount of information which is uploaded to your shared hosting account and downloaded from it every month. The traffic is produced generally by website visits - each time somebody visits your website, the pages they see are downloaded from your hosting server to their computer or smartphone and they are displayed by the web browser. What counts towards the traffic generated is the size of these pages, therefore the more site visitors you have for a given period of time, the more web site traffic will be produced. Along with the website visits, file uploads are also counted towards the total monthly transfer which means that if you upload site content or any other files through a file manager or an FTP software, they will also produce some website traffic. The counter resets on the very first day of each month and it's not related to the date you have registered as well as the date you've renewed the hosting plan.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
All our Linux shared hosting are appropriate for any small to medium-sized web site and even a larger variety of web sites. Considering that you can host plenty of domains using one account, we've designed the plans in a way so as to provide all features you will need. Whether you run a personal portfolio web site or an electronic commerce web site, the monthly website traffic quota that your website may use won't be a problem. In this way, you'll have the opportunity to extend your worldwide web presence and get a large number of new site visitors without worrying about getting to a cap. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel gives you in-depth data related to the traffic usage to and from your account, that will enable you to control your websites as well as the account much better. You will be able to check monthly, daily and hourly statistics, the traffic generated by each domain and by the account as a whole, the most downloaded files, etc.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our Linux semi-dedicated plans are quite efficient, we've decided not to put a restriction for the monthly site traffic that a given account can produce. We believe that if you obtain a web hosting plan that features a lot of computing power, your sites will probably have many visitors and given that every visitor makes a part of the site traffic, you can end up getting inaccessible web sites if there is a cap for this particular feature. With truly unlimited site traffic, you will be sure this won't happen. For your convenience, you will be able to keep track of the information being downloaded along with the web site traffic that is generated for each domain with monthly, daily and hourly stats that will give you an idea how popular your websites are. You can even see unique webpages and files which have produced most of the traffic in the semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
The monthly traffic quota that you receive with our Linux VPS servers is sufficient for almost any website and it is proportional to all the rest of the system resources that come with each and every plan. When you use a more powerful server, you can run a number of websites or a few extremely popular web sites, which means that the site visitors allowance for the superior packages is also higher. If you start with a low-end VPS package, you can easily update at any time with a few clicks from your billing Control Panel and the extra resources will be allocated to your existing account, which includes the added website traffic allowance. The VPS accounts include a server management panel where you have the option to keep track of the used and remaining website traffic for the current month along with all other system resources. In addition, we send notifications any time you reach 90% of the limit, so that you have sufficient time to react and upgrade if necessary.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
Taking into account how powerful all of our Linux dedicated servers are, the data transfer that you'll have every single month will be enough for any kind of website whatever the amount of its visitors, even if you offer file or image hosting. You'll have an allowance of terabytes of traffic each month and because you won't share the server with anybody else, that allowance will be accessible just for your websites and web apps. We will notify you the moment you get to 90% of your quota which means that you can react and either optimize your websites to lower the website traffic they make, or increase your limit. It's very unlikely that you'll ever require more than what we'll provide, but we will not restrict the growth of your sites, so we leave the chance to add additional website traffic open. The dedicated server packages come with an administration panel where you can see the amount of website traffic has been produced to date for the present month and what amount is left until you get to the limit. Considering that these figures contain software installations as well as any updates, they're more precise compared to any hosting Control Panel statistics that include just the site traffic made by sites.
