When any information is uploaded to a cloud hosting account or downloaded from it, some web site traffic is produced which is a feature that each hosting package comes with. It is furthermore among the characteristics you need to check out, since how much website traffic allowance you will need is based on what exactly you need the account for. The site traffic is generally generated by downloads and this includes website visits. Basically, every time someone goes to your web site, the webpages are downloaded from the server on his/her computer system and they are then shown by their web browser. It's also important to know that uploads matter as well, so every time you copy large files from your laptop or computer to the server, some traffic is generated as well. Different suppliers can have different names for this particular feature, like traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, yet they all refer to the exact same thing - the amount of incoming & outgoing data created for a period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Hosting
All our Linux cloud hosting are designed with the idea to take care of the site traffic produced by any type of site that can run in such an account. If you own one or a number of small or medium-sized web sites, you won't be limited by the monthly site traffic quota whatever the content you may have - plain text or lots of images, for example. The statistics inside the hosting Control Panel gives you comprehensive info about the site traffic generated by each web site plus the amount for the account as a whole. The statistics are updated in real time and show both the everyday and the monthly usage, thus you will know how much data is transferred to and from the hosting account anytime. The very first day of each month the counter is reset, but you'll be able to see the traffic statistics for the previous months, which will give you an idea how your web sites perform.
