All root servers have a dedicated 1 GBit uplink by default and with it unlimited traffic. Inclusive monthly traffic for servers with 10G uplink is 20TB. There is no bandwidth limitation. We will charge € 1/TB for overusage.
For AX10/AX20/AX30, cloud servers, and colocation products, there are different amounts of included traffic. See below.
|Cloud (CX, CCX, CPX)||20 TB|
|1/3 Rack||2 TB|
|Rack Basic||10 TB|
|Rack Advanced||10 TB|
|Colocation Cage||no included traffic|
We use calendar months to calculate traffic usage. The intervals start on the first of the month and end on the last day of month.
If customers go over the traffic limit, then we charge them for the additional traffic in 1TB increments.
Under the "IPs" tab of your server on Robot, you can activate traffic warnings. This system will send you emails when you go over certain limits that you set. It's a handy tool that notifies you of any irregular peaks in your traffic. You can set hourly, daily and monthly limits.
Important note: This traffic warning system is in no way related to the amount of actual free traffic you have. If you do not like receiving the warning emails, or if are receiving too many of them, then you can change the limits or turn the system off.
You can see your traffic usage online on Robot. Simply click on "Traffic statistics" in the menu on the left, and then select the IPs you want to see the traffic usage for. You can get daily, monthly and yearly overviews.
The measured values of the traffic usage are determined by the routers only after disconnecting a TCP connection. If a TCP connection exists for several hours, the total volume of this traffic will be displayed as a peak at the time of disconnection.
For information on the traffic API, see the Robot webservice.
We calculate monthly traffic only using outgoing traffic. We do not count incoming and internal traffic.↩
