Every time some content is uploaded to a shared hosting account or downloaded from it, some web site traffic is generated and that is an attribute that each hosting package comes with. It is moreover among the features you need to check, as how much traffic quota you'll need will depend on what you need the account for. The website traffic is primarily generated by downloads including website visits. Essentially, whenever somebody goes to your site, the pages are downloaded from the server on his or her computer and they are then displayed by their web browser. It's also recommendable to be aware that uploads matter as well, which means that any time you duplicate large files from your computer system to the server, some traffic is generated as well. Different suppliers often have different names for this feature, like traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, but all of them apply to the exact same thing - the exact amount of incoming and outgoing data created for a given period of time.
Monthly Traffic in Shared Hosting
All our shared plans were created with the concept to handle the traffic produced by any kind of site that can function in such an account. If you currently have one or a number of small or medium-sized web sites, you won't be limited by the monthly traffic allowance no matter what content you have - plain text or lots of images, for example. The stats inside your hosting Control Panel will give you in-depth details about the traffic produced by every single site plus the total amount for the account as a whole. The numbers are updated live and display both the everyday and the monthly usage, therefore you will know how much info is transferred to and from your website hosting account at any time. The first day of each and every month your counter is reset, but you'll be able to see the site traffic stats for the past months, that will give you an idea how your web sites perform.
