The monthly traffic feature, that’s at times also referred to as bandwidth or info transfer, refers to the full amount of data that can be uploaded to your web hosting account and downloaded from it each month. Your site traffic is generated generally by web site visits - whenever someone visits your web site, the webpages they see are downloaded from your website hosting server to his or her machine or mobile device and they are displayed by the internet browser. What counts towards the traffic produced is the size of these web pages, so the more visitors you get for a period of time, the more web site traffic will be generated. Along with the website visits, file uploads are also counted towards the entire monthly transfer this means that when you upload site content or some other files by using a file manager or an FTP program, they'll also generate some website traffic. The counter resets on the first day of every month and it is not related to the date you've subscribed as well as the date you've renewed your hosting plan.
