Unlimited Web Hosting Offers Explained

If you have been looking around for a host, you probably already have seen some of these : Unlimited Data Transfer, Unlimited Bandwidth or Unlimited Disk Space. The truth is; these deals are not possible.

Unlimited data transfer, or some hosts might say unlimited bandwidth, is not possible, because if a host has a server that is connected at 1.544 Mbps (Megabits per second) the maximum amount of data transfer that can be received is * 465.9 GB (Gigabytes) per month. This is a lot more data transfer than most sites will need. However, it is limited to the 465.9 Gigabytes per month and there will be other sites on the server sharing the data transfer if you have a shared plan.

You may also have heard of for unlimited disk space. Also, this is not possible. This maybe a little more obvious. Your disk space is limited to the size of the server’s hard drive. Again, if you have a shared plan, you will be sharing the space with other sites.

So, why do hosts make these ? They do it under the assumption that many sites won’t use very much data transfer and disk space. Be careful with hosts who make these unlimited and always read their policies, terms of service, or user agreement page concerning the unlimited .

If you know the connection speed of a host’s server or your own server, you can use one of these calculators to find the maximum amount of data transfer it can receive in Gigabytes per month.

When searching for a host look for hosts that don’t make these unlimited data transfer and unlimited disk space or, make sure you read the host’s terms of service concerning the . * 1.544 Megabits x 60 (seconds in a minute) x 60 (minutes in a hour) x 24 (hours in a day) x 30 (days in a month) = 4002048 Megabits = 4002048000000 bits = 500256000000 bytes = 465.9 Gigabytes (8 bits = 1 byte and 1 Gigabyte = 1,073,741,824 bytes)
