Unlimited Web Hosting: Fact or Fiction

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – You’ve seen the advertisements; a number of web hosting companies are using the term “unlimited” in order to attract potential customers to try their offers. As the term implies, anyone could easily get lured thinking that you can enjoy an unrestrained type of web hosting service.

For individuals that are not knowledgeable in this field, you can easily assume that opting for an unlimited web hosting service could mean that everything will be all set and ready and that no problems with regards to your service will exist in the future. And then comes, the most important question: Is unlimited web hosting a fact or just some kind of promotional campaign?

Offering an unlimited web hosting service could be considered as an overstatement. Web host companies have server restrictions when it comes to bandwidth and disk space. They cannot offer something that goes beyond their capacity and these size restrictions are the “limits”. So once this allowed size has reached its limit there is a possibility that problems might occur. As a prospective client, it is your duty to protect yourself from such type of promotional campaigns. Do this by conducting your own research prior to signing up for a service plan.

Be realistic when considering the offers from various web hosting companies. Remember that the reason why companies put on a lot of effort in their marketing strategies is because they want to attract more customers. Do not jump easily to the first offer, take your time and make sure that you fully understand the terms of the contract and the benefits included in each package. In most cases the web host provider will include other incentives and features in their unlimited web hosting plan in order to make it look more appealing and to make up for the package.

As a subscriber, you’ll be pleased to know that all these free offers are included in the web hosting plan that you are paying for. But a more reasonable option to consider is a plan that offers an expandable bandwidth and disk space which means that it will expand in order to accommodate your needs until it reached its limit.

There are several factors to consider in choosing the web host plan that is right for you. First thing will be your budget. Try to find a plan that can accommodate to your requirements without having to spend too much. But price tag should not be the only basis. The performance and quality of service from the web host provider is very important.
