Traffic

All dedicated servers have a dedicated 1 Gbit uplink.

All dedicated servers have unlimited traffic. For AX10/AX20/AX30 and CX servers there is a different calculation, which can be seen in the table below.

Server Name Traffic*
AX10, 20 and 30 10 TB
CX10 2 TB
CX20 5 TB
CX30 8 TB
CX40 10 TB
CX50 20 TB
CX60 30 TB
CX11, CX21, CX31, CX41 and CX51 20 TB
CPX11, CPX21, CPX31, CPX41 and CPX51 20 TB

*The monthly traffic is only calculated with outgoing traffic. Incoming and internal traffic is not calculated.

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 the traffic limit is exceeded, then additional traffic is automatically charged in 1TB increments.

Traffic Limit Reporting

Under the "IPs" tab of your server in the Robot you can activate traffic warnings. This system will send you emails when pre-determined limits are exceeded, giving you a handy tool that notifies you of any irregular peaks in your traffic. You can set hourly, daily and monthly limits.

Please note that 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 are receiving too many then you can change the limits or turn the system off.

Traffic Usage

The traffic usage can be viewed online in the 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.

The traffic API is described in the Robot webservice.
