Of course the word "unlimited" is nearly as pointless as "free" nowadays. We all know free services cost a lot later or require additional charges, etc. The same goes to unlimited services - the host simply states that most likely, you will not be able to exceed the limits (on disk space, traffic.account numbers, etc.) - as these take merely Kbs or Mbs (Gbs for site content), yet HDDs have much greater capacities.

However, CPU and bandwidth ARE limited by definition, so Unlimited services do not exist... just a marketing trick, nothing more.

You started off good, then you fell on your face with the usual anti-unlimited claptrap

Since when do Hosting Plans list cpu limits? These are always found in the TOS. "Unlimited" refers to the Hosting Plan, not the resources described in the TOS. Even "limited" hosts use the additional limits in the TOS to prevent users from using what is promised in the Hosting Plan. By your logic, all hosting plans are marketing gimmicks (we may agree on that one)

Hypocritcally, you provide unlimited email, databases, domains, etc. These require unlimited disk space, bandwidth, cpu and ram.

The primary difference between a limited host and an unlimited host is this: The limited host uses two sets of limits: the Hosting Plan and the TOS. The Unlmited host just uses one, TOS. Its the resources found in typical Hosting Plan that is unlimited.

so once again, someone that does not see it your way so you abuse/insult them by saying they are spouting anti-unlimited claptrap.

you have your views and run your business your way, just like other have their views and run their businesses their way.

Inventing or imagining an unlimited hosting plan that does not exist claiming its the plan used by unlimited hosts as some sort of special marketing scheme is, if a "view," factually in error. Correcting the error is not opinion. And guess what? I am in an excellent position to correct it.

Funny how you don't impose your posting rules on members of the anti-unlimited crowd, or anyone else. Who died and made you forum Nazi. But that's you and the way you are when faced with the irrefutable: change the subject or context and derail the conversation

Wasn't it you who would always accused unlimited hosting as a fraud (not following your own posting dictates), and then offer it under different business names? You are morally bankrupt, sir.

The way I see it - we provide REDUNDANT services. Any client ordering even the cheapest of our plans will be able to create a plenitude of email accounts, and send/receive enormous amounts of emails (for example). Therefore, chances of reaching the limits are low (yet they exist, of course).

You are absolutely right, limits are described in our TOS. You are also right, wise person will understand that unlimited package simply cannot exist and is limited in some way.

However, offering "unlimited" packages is nearly as obligatory as offering shared, VPS and dedicated solutions for a hosting provider. We offer what clients expect to see and we expect clients to be clever enough to read our TOS as you did.

There is a nice saying about this: "if you have to ask what it is, you probably do not need to know it". A client wants to be sure they will not be limited in email accounts quantity or email numbers - and we assure them they will not be limited with this.

When the client nears to exceeding the bandwidth limits - we warn them about it beforehand, so they are able to react in time.

If CPU limits are to exceed - we also warn the client and offer them to upgrade service to avoid unavailability of the service.

Cases with exceeding the limits are dealt with on a case-to-case basis to a mutual satisfaction.

That is what UNLIMITED means to us. Unlimited customer care, ensuring quality of service.

After all, everybody conduct business their way and your opnion is just your opinion, not the final verdict in any form. Best wishes!
