[box type=”warning”] Million Dollar Question – Is Concept of “Unlimited Bandwidth / Unlimited Space” is Real?[/box]
When we look according the Marketing Strategy of Hosting Providers it is real. But there is nothing link unlimited Bandwidth , it is always limited by the data cable operator of Internet Service providers or Network Cards.
In the Hosting world virtualized server concept is used which is mostly used in VPS hosting services. The Unlimited Bandwidth Concept comes in reality because most of the Websites dont take much bandwidth as it contains mostly HTML files which dont take much Space, even images also dont take much space which can be easily handled by the Servers.
Hosting providers know that only few websites take more bandwidth and rest take less bandwidth which depends on the number of times the site has been visited.
Same is in the Case of “Unlimited Space”, most of the website contains HTML files and images and small files which consumes a less memory and it helps the Hosting Provider to show that they provide unlimited Space.
