The monthly traffic feature, that is sometimes also referred to as bandwidth or info transfer, identifies the full amount of information which is uploaded to your cloud web hosting account and downloaded from it every month. The site traffic is generated primarily by web site visits - every time someone visits your web site, the webpages they view are downloaded from your web hosting server to their computer system or mobile device and they are shown by the browser. What counts towards the web site traffic produced is the overall size of these pages, as a result the more site visitors you get for a given period of time, the more web site traffic will be generated. In addition to the web site visits, file uploads are also counted towards the entire monthly transfer which means that if you upload web site content or any other files by using a file manager or an FTP software, they will also produce some website 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 the web hosting plan.
