Find out what hosting providers mean when they say ‘monthly traffic quotas’.
When some data is uploaded to a shared hosting account or downloaded using it, some web site traffic is generated and this is an attribute that each and every hosting plan comes with. It is also one of the characteristics you have to check, since how much traffic allowance you'll need depends upon the things you need the account for. The web site traffic is mainly generated by downloads which includes web site visits. In layman's terms, when somebody goes to your website, the web pages are downloaded from the server to their computer and they're then shown by their internet browser. It is also important to know that uploads count as well, so that every time you copy large files from your computer system to the server, some traffic will be generated too. Different suppliers may have different names for this feature, for example traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, still they all refer to the same thing - the amount of incoming & outgoing data created for some period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
Our Linux shared hosting
were created with the idea to take care of the website traffic made by any web site that can exist in such an account. In case you have one or multiple small-scale or medium-sized web sites, you will not be limited by the monthly website traffic allowance irrespective of what content you may have - plain text or a great number of images, for example. The stats in the hosting Control Panel will give you in-depth data about the traffic generated by each website as well as the total amount for the account in general. The statistics are updated live and display both the daily and the monthly usage, so you'll know how much data is transferred to and from the web hosting account at any moment. Day one of each and every month your counter is reset, but you will still be able to see the website traffic stats for the previous months, which will give you an idea how your sites perform.
Monthly Traffic in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans are intended to host multiple resource-demanding web sites because they come with a lot of processing power. Such sites constantly produce a lot of web site traffic and for that reason we've decided not to restrict this feature. With a semi-dedicated server
, it is possible to have as many website visitors as you are able to get without worrying that you'll hit a limit for the traffic they can produce. For your benefit, you will be able to monitor what is going on in your account as we'll provide hourly, daily and monthly figures for the website traffic your websites generate. Which means that, you will be informed on the way they perform at any time. You'll even be able to check out which webpage or file has generated the most traffic for every single website hosted in your semi-dedicated server account.
Monthly Traffic in VPS
All of the Linux VPS
that we offer have a monthly traffic allowance proportional to the resources they come with. The more disk storage and computing power a server has, the more likely it is that you will host more sites on it, therefore the website traffic you are able to increases with each and every plan. Should you need additional traffic at some point, you'll be able to upgrade the package from your billing Control Panel with just a couple of mouse-clicks and the extra system resources, including the larger traffic allowance, will be added to your current account. You'll also be able to keep track of how much data has been transferred to and from your virtual server at any time. For your convenience, we will update you as soon as you reach 90% of the allowance so as to give you sufficient time to react and lower your traffic or upgrade the plan if needed. From your control panel, you will be able to view the website traffic statistics for every single domain or subdomain in your VPS account.
Monthly Traffic in Dedicated Hosting
The Linux dedicated hosting
that we offer you come with great traffic allowances which are enough for any type of website, even a video streaming portal or a well-liked social media. Terabytes of traffic will be at your disposal each month and the control panel that is included with each and every dedicated server will give you info how much info has been transferred already and how much is left for the current month. To avoid service interruptions, we'll notify you if you reach 90% of the allowance and you'll be able to either reduce the traffic generated by your web sites by optimizing their content, or you will be able to increase the allowance for your account. It is highly unlikely that you'll ever need such an update, still we prefer to leave this alternative open. The statistics in that panel include the overall site traffic, in contrast to the stats in your hosting Control Panel where you will find only the traffic from sites, but not from server-side software downloads & updates.
