The monthly traffic characteristic, that’s at times also called bandwidth or info transfer, refers to the total amount of data which is uploaded to your cloud hosting account and downloaded from it every month. Your traffic is produced mainly by web site visits - when somebody comes across your website, the web pages they view are downloaded from your hosting server to his or her computer system or mobile device and they're shown by the browser. What counts for the site traffic generated is the overall size of these web pages, therefore the more site visitors you have for a given period of time, the more traffic will be generated. In addition to the website visits, file uploads are also counted towards the entire monthly transfer this means that when you upload web site content as well as other files through a file manager or an FTP software, they'll also generate some website traffic. The counter resets on day one of each and every month and it is not related to the date you have subscribed and the date you have renewed your web hosting plan.
