What is Traffic/Bandwidth/Data Transfer?

Traffic, bandwidth, and data transfer refers to the amount of information transmitted to and from your website by you and your visitors. The following are the factors for your traffic usage:

  • The amount of traffic you receive (hits to your website)
  • The size of your site
  • The types of files offered on your site

If your website is 1 MB including pages and images, and 100 people visited your website and viewed all the pages, the traffic generated would be approximately 100 MB.
