Every time some info is uploaded to a shared hosting account or downloaded using it, web site traffic is produced and that is a characteristic that each and every hosting package comes with. It is also one of the characteristics you need to check out, as what amount of site traffic allowance you'll need depends upon what you need the account for. The website traffic is generally produced by downloads and this includes web site visits. In simple terms, anytime someone goes to your site, the webpages are downloaded from the server on their computer system and they are then shown by their web browser. It is also important to know that uploads are considered as well, hence any time you duplicate bigger files from your pc to the server, some site traffic will be generated too. Different suppliers often have different names for this feature, for example traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, still they all refer to the very same thing - the amount of incoming and outgoing information produced for a period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
All of our shared plans are designed with the concept to take care of the traffic produced by any kind of web site that can function in such an account. When you have one or a couple of small or medium-sized websites, you'll not be limited by the monthly website traffic allowance whatever the content you may have - plain text or perhaps many images, for instance. The stats inside the hosting Control Panel provides you with elaborate data about the website traffic generated by each and every web site along with the total amount for the account as a whole. The statistics are updated in real time and indicate both the everyday and the monthly usage, which means that you'll be aware of how much data is transferred to and from your web hosting account at any time. The very first day of each month your counter is reset, but you'll be able to see the site traffic stats for the previous months, which will give you an idea how your websites perform.
