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