Not true. Quotas can be unlimited in the sense that they may not have a limit. All hosting plan resources are defined by quotas. If you don't put a limit on the quota then that resource is said to be unlimited. Simple. Nothing tricky. You just need to know how to configure a server.
Here is an example on how it works in real life:
Suppose your host has a 2 GB, 5 GB and 10 GB plan. You sign up for a 2 GB hosting plan. Now let's suppose your site is successful and grows to 2.5 GB. What happens? Your limited host will either:
- Suspend your site when you hit the 2GB limit
- Charge you a premium for going over the 2GB limit
- Ask you to pay for the 5 GB plan, with a new bigger limit
- Maybe all the above
What happens with the unlimited hosting? Nothing! Your site goes from 2.0 GB to 2.5 GB without penalty, threats of suspension, or additional charges. That is what unlimited hosting is all about!
If you disagree you will need to explain your unlimited hypocrisy by offering...
Unlimited FTP Accounts
Unlimited Email Accounts
Unlimited Mailing lists
...or explain your self-admitted false advertising
