I will never buy this argument.
Yes. People may fall for this scam but that doesn't make it right.
Fortunately there are clients out there that prefer to have an honest relationship with the host and don't always go for the cheapest quickie that is on offer.
Fortunately there are people out there that don't just run a personal blog and actually depend on their sites being online that don't fall for these scams.
This is what keeps honest hosts in business even though we may not be the "big guys".
Hey Hey hang on a minute... Noone said it was ok to lie! I neither support nor dissaprove of the unlimited resource pitch. I merely started this thread for some healthy discussion on the reality of this idea. Personally I don't believe that a host should offer Unlimited diskspace as it is not realistic. My quote about playing devils advocate over the presence of an unlimited bandwidth arguement was purely from the fact that it was physically limited by connection speed and time.
We (ACE4SPACE) are not the smallest fish but by no stretch of the imagination are swimming with the big fish in this pond, therefore we understand what you are saying.
We believe that the essential thing a host should be offering is good customer service, value and reliability.
The main course of action for a client looking for a host is research! I started the thread to bring to attention the pitfalls of purchasing hosting from a host that offers unrealistic resources without a history of customer satisfaction and quality, thats all...
I am sure you will agree that if it saves one person from being disappointed then this thread was worth all the posts!
