Unlimited Bandwith.. is it really? What gives?

The phrase ‘Unlimited Bandwidth’ is an overused marketing slogan by a lot web hosting providers (often Reseller hosts), attracting many unsuspecting customers to sign up, only for the customer to find out that the nature of their website content breaches the terms of service for unlimited bandwidth usage.

If you are tempted by a host offering unlimited bandwidth, you will definitely need to find out what their meaning of ‘unlimited’ actually is. In reality, every host has a limit to what they can provide. Think about it, why aren’t big businesses hosting their sites with a company who offer accounts with unlimited bandwidth for ?10 a month?

You will find that unlimited bandwidth is actually limited or restricted in some way.

Unlimited Bandwidth will often be restricted where a hosting provider will let you use all the bandwidth you want, so long as you do NOT offer MP3, Zips, Tar, exe, in fact, any other media types that generally have large file sizes. Furthermore, it maybe the case that you are not allowed to have external sites linking to your files and images.

Some, more unscrupulous web hosting providers will blatantly lie and sell unlimited bandwidth plans knowing full well that when it comes to crunch they can’t provide it. In these circumstances the provider will seek to close a customer account, sometimes without notice, citing reasons unrelated to bandwidth as the cause and point to small print in their terms of service.

You may think, how can these providers get away with this? Well, it can be assumed that most customers do not understand how much bandwidth they really need or will ever normally use and therefore when they see one provider who imposes limits against another who doesn’t, the customer will often opt for the ‘no limits’ provider with the believe that they are safe-guarding themselves against incurring additional costs in the future…. which is understandable.

Netmotivated has a bandwidth calculator that visitors can play with to ascertain how much bandwidth they could use, or will need, for their hosting venture and will recommend a hosting plan based on that usage.
