Anytime any content is uploaded to a web hosting account or downloaded from it, some traffic is produced and that is an attribute that each hosting package includes. It's also among the features it is important to check, as how much site traffic allowance you'll need is based on what exactly you need the account for. The web site traffic is generally generated by downloads and this includes website visits. Basically, whenever someone opens your website, the webpages are downloaded from the server on his or her computer system and they are subsequently displayed by their internet browser. It is of course important to be aware that uploads count as well, hence every time you back up larger files from your pc to the server, some traffic is generated as well. Different suppliers may have different names for this specific feature, for instance traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, however all of them apply to the same thing - the amount of incoming and outgoing information generated for a particular period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Web Hosting
All our Linux web hosting were designed with the idea to take care of the traffic produced by any web site that can function in such an account. When you currently have one or several small or medium-sized sites, you won't be limited by the monthly website traffic quota no matter what content you have - plain text and / or many images, for instance. The stats in the hosting Control Panel will provide you with detailed info about the site traffic produced by every single website along with the total amount for the account altogether. The amounts are updated in real time and show both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, thus you'll know how much data is transferred to and from the website hosting account at any moment. The very first day of each and every month the counter is reset, but you will be able to see the web site traffic statistics for the previous months, which will show you how your sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering that our semi-dedicated servers are quite powerful, we have made the decision not to put any kind of restriction for the monthly traffic that an account can generate. It is our understanding that if you obtain a website hosting package that features a lot of processing power, your sites will most likely have lots of visitors and as each and every visitor makes certain website traffic, one could end up getting unavailable web sites in case there was a limit for this particular characteristic. With truly unrestricted website traffic, you can be sure this cannot happen. To save you time, you will be able to keep track of the content being downloaded in addition to the site traffic that is generated for each domain with monthly, daily and hourly stats that will inform you on how popular your sites are. You will be able to even see individual webpages and files that have generated most of the site traffic in the semi-dedicated account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS Servers
The monthly website traffic allowance for our VPS servers is proportional to all of the other server’s resources. If you obtain a more powerful server, it's likely that you'll host a popular website or even several sites, consequently you will have much more website visitors. For this reason, the greater package you obtain, the greater monthly website traffic quota you will have. We'll contact you once you get to 90% of that amount, in order for you to have the required time to take some action and either upgrade the plan or optimize your websites and lessen the site traffic that they make until the counter resets the next month. When you decide to update, this can be done via your billing Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. In addition, you'll be able to monitor the amount of website traffic your server has already made and how much is left before you reach your monthly limit. This data is available in the VPS control panel where you're also able to restart your server and view the usage of all the other system resources such as disk space, CPU load and physical memory usage.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Servers
Considering how powerful all of our Linux dedicated servers are, the data transfer that you'll have each and every month will be enough for any kind of site whatever the amount of its visitors, even if you provide file or image hosting. You'll get an allowance of terabytes of site traffic each month and as you will not share the server with anybody else, that quota will be provided only for your web sites and web apps. We'll let you know once you get to 90% of the allowance therefore you will be able to react and either optimize your websites to decrease the website traffic they generate, or extend your limit. It is extremely unlikely that you may ever need more than what we'll provide, however we will not limit the development of your web sites, that's why we leave the chance to add more traffic open. The dedicated server plans include an administration panel where you will be able to see the amount of traffic has been produced so far for the current month and the amount that is left until you reach the restriction. Due to the fact that these figures contain software installations and updates, they are more correct than various hosting Control Panel statistics which include only the site traffic generated by websites.
