The monthly website traffic feature is usually referred to as information transfer or bandwidth as well, still all these names refer to the same thing - what amount of info can be transferred to and from your cloud hosting account. The site traffic can be produced in two ways, the more noticeable one being website visits. When somebody goes to your website, their Internet browser requests and downloads the pages from your web hosting server then displays them on their end. The more site visitors you have, the more outgoing traffic is produced from your hosting account. Because this particular feature includes the whole website traffic, not just your website visits, you should not forget that incoming traffic is measured as well. Which means that site content as well as other files that you upload to the account via a file manager or an FTP software are counted towards the account quota. Your transfer is typically tracked on a monthly basis and the counter resets on the very first day of every month regardless of your actual date of signup.
