I agree, I think they definitely know what they are doing, but if you are going to offer a service such as "Unlimited", people will certainly try to find out what exactly the limit of "Unlimited" is.
It comes down to common sense. If you purchase a dedicated server, you will have limits such as the size of the hard disk and the amount of bandwidth you are allotted each month. A host is not going to spend $100+ per month on a dedicated server to allow 1 shared hosting client to hog that servers disk space and bandwidth for $4.95 a month. Which is why most "Unlimited" hosts giving ridiculous pricing on their hosting plans are out of business quickly.
