The Truth About Unlimited Web Hosting

by Melissa Smich on August 10, 2009

sden267lMany web hosting providers are offering unlimited disk storage and data transfer at ridiculous prices.  But do they really provide it? The answer is both yes and no. It is true that they are allowing the use of huge amounts of storage and bandwidth. However there are unspoken constraints such as limited FTP uploads, MySQL databases or number of email accounts you can create.

Hosting companies can still make money with these all-you-can-eat packages. It has pretty much same idea with all-you-can-eat restaurants. Customers can never eat “unlimited”, plus drinks or deserts may be extra, and you have to pay much more than the usual price. You are always welcome, but no second plate is allowed.

A good hosting deal should be decided by the quality of the service and Customer Support you will get, and  not by the amount of unnecessary disk space or bandwidth.  Moreover, disk space and bandwidth options are gradually increasing day by day.

At we have three great  web hosting packages for you to choose from. One of them will absolutely fit your technical needs. Go ahead and check out our hosting plans. They may not give you unlimited disk space or bandwidth, but provide an ample amount, plus many useful features. And our 24/7 technical support is ready to give you unlimited attention. And that is what you should really care about.

I agree with these points. “Unlimited” data is a meaningless offer because it’s impossible to take advantage of.

And you always have to watch out for hidden fees with unlimited hosting, as well as slower speeds.

A limited number of email accounts must be a dealbreaker for some people, especially people who take “unlimited” to mean “unlimited everything.”

I never even notice words like “unlimited” anymore. I’m so used to ignoring advertising hyperbole that I’m able to tune it out automatically.

I love getting unlimited attention! I’d take that over unlimited bandwidth or data or anything else any day.
