The monthly traffic characteristic, that’s at times also identified as bandwidth or information transfer, identifies the total volume of data which is uploaded to your cloud website hosting account and downloaded from it every month. Your traffic is generated mainly by site visits - whenever somebody finds your site, the pages they view are downloaded from your web hosting server to his or her computer system or mobile device and they are displayed by the browser. What counts for the web site traffic generated is the size of these webpages, thus the more visitors you get for some period of time, the more website traffic will be generated. In addition to the website visits, file uploads will also be counted towards the entire monthly transfer i.e. whenever you upload web site content or other files by using a file manager or an FTP application, they will also generate some site 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've renewed your web hosting plan.
