Whenever some information is uploaded to a web hosting account or downloaded from it, web site traffic is generated and this is an aspect that every single hosting package includes. It is moreover among the characteristics it is important to check, since how much website traffic allowance you'll need will depend on the things you need the account for. The website traffic is mostly generated by downloads including web site visits. Basically, anytime someone opens your website, the pages are downloaded from the server on his or her computer and they are subsequently shown by their web browser. It's also important to be aware that uploads count as well, so whenever you back up larger files from your computer to the server, some web site traffic will be generated too. Different companies often have different names for this particular feature, like traffic, bandwidth, data transfer, yet they all apply to the very same thing - the total amount of incoming and outgoing data produced for a particular period of time.
