What does the term 'overselling' have to do with Internet hosting? Why locating a web host that doesn't oversell is so important?
The word overselling refers to offering resources to customers without having the ability to provide them. In simple words, a web hosting service provider could advertise a solution with unrestricted disk space when, in reality, the customer's account will be created on a server with a number of other accounts sharing the total space. To ensure that all of the customers have a share, providers often set hidden quotas for every single account and basically trick their customers about the resources they can get. The primary reason to oversell is to get new customers despite the fact that service providers know that a server can have only so many hard disks. Resellers often purchase plans with fixed system resources too, therefore they are not able to provide the unlimited plans they advertise.
No Overselling in Shared Website Hosting
If you acquire one of our shared website hosting packages, you will receive what you've paid for with no exceptions. We don't oversell and we will give you all the system resources which you find on our site for each of the packages. Even the features which are listed as unlimited don't have hidden quotas and we are able to afford that since we use a very powerful custom hosting platform. Instead of creating accounts on one server like a large number of companies do, we offer clusters of servers controlling every part of the web hosting service - file storage, database access, e-mail addresses, statistics, etcetera. For that reason, the system resources are virtually infinite as we can keep adding hard disks or whole servers to the clusters. As opposed to all popular Control Panels, our Hepsia tool was meant to work on such a platform.
