What exactly does the word 'overselling' have to do with Internet hosting? Why discovering a host that doesn't oversell is so important?
The word overselling refers to offering system resources to customers while lacking the capability to provide them. In simple words, an Internet hosting provider could advertise a plan with infinite disk space when, in reality, the client's account will be made on a server with a number of other accounts sharing the total space. To make sure that all the consumers have a share, providers often set hidden quotas for every account and in essence deceive their clients about the resources they'll get. The key reason to oversell is to get new customers even though providers do understand that a server can have only so many hard disk drives. Resellers usually get plans with limited system resources too, therefore they are unable to provide the unlimited plans they advertise.
No Overselling in Shared Website Hosting
In case you buy one of our shared website hosting plans, you'll receive what you have paid for without exclusions. We do not oversell and we'll provide you with all the system resources that you find on our website for any of the plans. Even the features which are listed as unrestricted do not have hidden quotas and we are able to afford that since we use an extremely powerful custom web hosting platform. Instead of setting up accounts on a single server like the vast majority of companies do, we have clusters of servers controlling each part of the website hosting service - file storage, database access, e-mail addresses, stats, etc. As a result, the system resources are virtually endless since we can keep adding hard drives or whole servers to each of the clusters. Unlike almost all well-known Control Panels, our Hepsia tool was intended to work on such a platform.
