The monthly traffic characteristic, that’s sometimes also identified as bandwidth or data transfer, indicates the overall volume of info which is uploaded to your cloud website hosting account and downloaded from it every month. The website traffic is produced generally by site visits - every time somebody loads your web site, the pages they see are downloaded from your hosting server to their computer system or mobile device and they are shown by the web browser. What counts towards the web site traffic generated is the size of these webpages, consequently the more visitors you get for a period of time, the more web site traffic will be produced. In addition to the web site visits, file uploads will also be counted towards the entire monthly transfer which means that every time you upload site content or any other files using a file manager or an FTP application, they'll also generate some site traffic. The counter resets on the very first day of each and every month and it's not related to the date you've subscribed and the date you have renewed your website hosting plan.
