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.
