You, for sure will succeed in business, because you are more a politician, not using morality. The flaw in your article (made up to cover the overselling process) is this:
Use good judgment when looking at web hosts. Bear in mind that people who rent servers will be paying between $79 and $499 a month for a typical web hosting server. If a host is saying "1GB space and 10GB bandwidth for $1 a year," then they need at least 1000 customers on a $79 a month server to make a profit. And at $79 a month, the server won't be very powerful.

You gave this example, just to justify the unlimited disk space, that is unreal, not TRUE, a big lie. Tell me who is selling webhosting for 1$ / year (8.3 cents / month), probably only you. Keep those things for yourself, or for a daycare kids, who will believe this.
A simple example with a server (let's say 32 GB, Raid-10 - 4*1TB (2TB usable, with a cost of 180$) I can put on a server 70 accounts of 10G (700G and 70 * $3 = $210
) and 10 accounts of 110 GB (1100GB and 10 * $9 = $90
) so I'll have on that server 80 accounts with $300 so my profit will be 300 - 180 = $120 / month
(without selling my morality, or overselling). Of course this is just an example but you can do more profit in some cases without overselling.
Overloading is the effect of overselling, are 2 different things, you are right in this case.
You see , you can do moral business, and to have profit.
