The monthly traffic feature, that’s at times also called bandwidth or information transfer, indicates the full volume of information which is uploaded to your cloud hosting account and downloaded from it each month. The website traffic is produced mostly by website visits - each time someone goes to your site, the webpages they see are downloaded from your hosting server to his or her computer system or smartphone and they're displayed by the browser. What counts towards the website traffic generated is the overall size of these webpages, consequently the more visitors you get for a period of time, the more website traffic will be produced. In addition to the web site visits, file uploads are also counted towards the total monthly transfer i.e. when you upload web site content or other files with a file manager or an FTP software, they will also generate some website traffic. The counter resets on day one of each and every month and it is not related to the date you have registered or the date you have renewed the website hosting package.
