If you’ve recently been looking online for companies to host your website, you’ve probably been asking yourself: What are unlimited hosting plans?
Well, those unlimited plans are essentially a dishonest marketing tactic certain companies use to sell their services.
In hosting, there is a term we use called overselling. This is essentially the shady practice of setting up many more than the ideal number of sites on a single server.
What this does is extremely slow down performance for everyone hosting their site.
Can Hosting Plans be Unlimited?
Imagine you found a hosting company offering an unlimited package. The plan sounds great, you get unlimited bandwidth, fast speeds and more!
Even if you didn’t know they were likely overselling, let’s just think about the idea of an unlimited hosting plan for a second.
How can it be unlimited? By definition that means there is literally not a limit to the bandwidth, which is impossible. Even if it’s “way more than you’d ever use”, there’s still a limit.
Some hosting companies won’t even give you the limit in the fine print. This is dishonest and wrong in our opinion.
Service Will Suffer
On the rare occasion that the hosting provider isn’t over-selling their servers, they’ll be offering so much for such little profit, that they’ll literally not be able to offer support. Or, it will suffer severely.
This is why we NEVER offer unlimited plans. If we did, we wouldn’t be able to offer 24/7 customer service and high-quality hosting. It’s important to be realistic with the service.
