What is data traffic?

People or companies who select a hosting subscription need to pay attention at two parameters: the amount of included web space and the allowed data traffic (bandwidth) per month. Both values are expressed in megabytes or gigabytes.

The web space parameter stells you how much files you may store on your hosting subscription.

The allowed data traffic per month is related, this number expresses the amount of data you may send from the server to the Internet. Or in other words: how many data visitors may download from your site per month. This number is usually expressed in gigabytes since we're talking about large numbers here.

You can use more data traffic then allowed. In that case, you may either pre-order data traffic at a better rate, or you will be billed extra at the end of the month.

In the "My Kinamo" website, you have some handy tools with automatic e-mail alerts so you will be informed when your webspace or data traffic crosses a certain limit.

If we notice you frequently cross the allowed data traffic limit, we will contact you and suggest you to switch to a higher hosting subscription level.
