The monthly traffic characteristic, that is sometimes also referred to as bandwidth or info transfer, identifies the total amount of info which can be uploaded to your cloud website hosting account and downloaded from it every month. Your website traffic is generated generally by website visits - every time someone loads your web site, the webpages they see are downloaded from the website hosting server to his / her computer system or mobile device and they are shown by the internet browser. What counts for the site traffic produced is the size of these pages, as a result the more website visitors you get for some period of time, the more site traffic will be produced. Along with the web site visits, file uploads will also be counted towards the total monthly transfer which means that any time you upload site content or other files by using a file manager or an FTP program, they'll also produce some site traffic. The counter resets on the very first day of every month and it is not related to the date you've signed up and the date you have renewed your web hosting package.
