When any info is uploaded to a cloud hosting account or downloaded from it, website traffic is produced and that is an attribute that each hosting plan has. It is moreover one of the characteristics you need to check out, since the amount of traffic allowance you'll need depends on the things you need the account for. The web site traffic is mostly produced by downloads including web site visits. In simple terms, anytime somebody opens your website, the web pages are downloaded from the server to their computer system and they're afterwards shown by their internet browser. It's of course important to be aware that uploads matter as well, and whenever you copy larger files from your computer system to the server, some web site traffic will be generated too. Different providers can have different names for this particular feature, like traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, however all of them apply to the exact same thing - the total amount of incoming and outgoing information generated for a given period of time.
