The monthly site traffic characteristic is usually referred to as data transfer or bandwidth as well, however all these names have to do with the very same thing - how much content can be transferred to and from your cloud hosting account. The website traffic can be produced in just two ways, the more noticeable one being site visits. When somebody goes to your website, their Internet browser requests and downloads the pages from the website hosting server and then displays them on their end. The more visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is generated from your hosting account. Due to the fact that this particular feature contains the whole site traffic, not just the site visits, you should not forget that inward traffic is counted too. Which means website content as well as other files that you upload to your account using a file manager or an FTP application are measured towards your account quota. The transfer is generally tracked on a monthly basis and the counter resets on the very first day of each and every month irrespective of your actual date of registration.
