Exactly. You can offer unlimited shared hosting packages because you can control usage that a user makes. But if you sell reseller packages with unlimited space, your reseller will sell unlimited space too and you can't go behind his users and the actions they make.
There aren't really unlimited things in this world. But what about if you understand unlimited as an way to offer an user use more resources they usually would can use in other providers at less cost?
Many providers say if a web site grow won't can be hosted in a unlimited hosting.
That's true and untrue, at the same time. If a web site grows and use high resources, that web site won't can be hosted in a provider that offers shared hosting plans with 1 MB - 50 MB - 500 MB or in a provider that offers unlimited shared hosting plans.
Think about that. Nobody is trying to say what option is better. Unlimited hosting isn't nothing bad.
That's quite simple. Overselling isn't bad or good. If it is on good hands, everybody can win. If it is on bad hands, it can be compared with a limited hosting provider that doesn't have knowledge to offer support to their clients.
