That is why I do not like unlimited space/bandwidth offers. If anything, it LIMITS the customer in growing their sites. If I create a really large database-driven site, it would limit me in the amount of files I can host and/or certain types of files. As customer, even if I do not consume a lot of space/bandwidth, I do not like this kind of headache of thinking when my accounts will be irresponsibly terminated for those other reasons mentioned.
I understand, but unlimited is also an offer that can be avoided by big company's. What my hosting company does, which i do not state in terms of service, or show on my website, due to the fact i would be loosing alot of proceeds. What we do is, We offer unlimited hosting, and if we feel your site expands our web hosting, or bogs down (Slows down) our loading speed, our diskspace etc. We will migrate you to a Dedicated Server. This is how we keep our servers 100% lag free, and 100% reliable. This is why if you go to my website we have over 500+ facebook likes.
You can offer unlimited plans, you just have to have a plan B. If your servers decide to slow down, or crash. Which is what Hosting42 Offers
