Features in Web Hosting Packages
be a key word for the web hosting industry. There are many web hosting providers
who will give you an "unlimited" feature - unlimited disk space, unlimited
bandwidth, unlimited email accounts. These features are included from many very
reputable web hosting service providers, but there are also many articles
telling you not to work with a web hosting company who offers "unlimited"
So, what do you
Enjoy it. Unlimited
features from a web hosting provider are not a bad thing. Most of the time, it
will save you a lot of money - for example, a web hosting provider will give you
unlimited disk space so that you don't have to worry about running out of disk
space for your web files.
Don't abuse it. Let's
look at the most common "unlimited" features.
Can you really
create unlimited email accounts? Even if you could, would you want to be
managing unlimited email accounts?
Can you really
create unlimited web sites? Maybe. But the most difficult part of creating a
successful website is how to promote it - the value of a website is no more than
how successful it is (search engine ranking, visitor traffic, etc.). Many people
only have the time and/or budget to create and promote a few websites.
disk space, let say the connection speed to upload files at home is about
8kb/second, that means you have to spend one day to upload 13MB of data. If you
don't stop uploading files to your server, in a year, you will have only assumed
25GB of disk space.
bandwidth? The same as unlimited disk space, the secret here is connection
speed. There is technically no restriction on the bandwidth usage, but you just
cannot consume too much because of the connection speed.
choosing a web hosting package for your website, you need to pay more attention
to the reliability and customer service rather than the "unlimited" features
