Bandwidth is the measurement of the amount of data transmitted over an internet connection in a given time. The majority of web hosting companies will set monthly limits but some web host says they provides “Unlimited bandwidth”.
What is your opinion?
Any web hosting company claiming “Unlimited Bandwidth” is simply lying. There’s no such thing as “Unlimited Bandwidth”
In the real world, we’ve never seen any broadband company offering an internet connection as “Unlimited Megabytes Per Second.” So, how could a web hosting company, which normally doesn’t even own its own access lines, claims to customers that it will give them “Unlimited Bandwidth”?
There are a lot of ways you can be duped by these ‘ unlimited’ hosts; here are just a few of them:
1. The secret of ‘unlimited’ is actually buried in the Terms of Service by the host. Do not be surprised to find that unlimited only equals 900mb or so .
2. The host may restrict the sort of files that you can host on their server. Generally image galleries and audio/video files attract a lot more downloads thereby resulting in higher bandwidth consumption. So if there are no files of this type, your site won’t really require a lot of bandwidth.
In short: Website Hosting Companies offering “Unlimited Bandwidth” to attract customers need to be avoided
Unlimited is a marketing trick to get your business.
Remember it is impossible for any provider to actually provide an unlimited amount of bandwidth or disk space.
