Anytime some data is uploaded to a shared hosting account or downloaded using it, web site traffic is produced and this is an aspect that each and every hosting plan comes with. It is also among the attributes you have to take a look at, since what amount of site traffic allowance you'll need depends on what you need the account for. The site traffic is primarily produced by downloads and this includes site visits. In layman's terms, every time someone opens your web site, the webpages are downloaded from the server to their computer system and they're then shown by their internet browser. It's also important to be aware that uploads count too, and when you transfer larger files from your computer to the server, some web site traffic will be generated as well. Different suppliers can have different names for this feature, for example traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, however all of them apply to the exact same thing - the amount of incoming & outgoing info created for a given period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
Our Linux shared hosting were designed with the notion to handle the traffic generated by any web site that can exist in such an account. In case you have one or a few different small-scale or medium-sized web sites, you'll not be limited by the monthly website traffic quota whatever the content you may have - plain text or plenty of images, for instance. The statistics in your hosting Control Panel gives you elaborate info about the website traffic generated by each and every web site along with the total amount for your account as a whole. The amounts are updated in real time and show both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, therefore you'll know how much info is transferred to and from the website hosting account at any time. The first day of every month the counter is reset, but you'll be able to view the traffic stats for the past months, which will give you an idea how your websites perform.
