    Unlimited Web Hosting is nothing but a marketing gimmick prevailing in Web Hosting industry nowadays. Most overselling web host claims to offer unlimited web hosting under Fair Use Policy. This Fair Use Policy states that "you are free to host your website only as long as you use a given subset of resources". When you exceeds its bandwidth or disk space limits you will violate the Fair Use Policy and you will be noticed to upgrade to VPS plan.

    Web Hosts can offer unlimited Web Hosting because there are a hundred users on a given shared server but not all of them will use all the resources available. In most cases, 99 out of the 100 users will consume a small fraction of the traffic and space, and this allows the host to oversell servers claiming that hosting is unlimited.

    You should choose web host with good support instead of Host with unlimited resources.

    For this question, it is better to ask directly with your host. honestly there is not such thing as unlimited hosting. Every hardware or bandwidth there is a limit on it.

    Well, Its completely depend on your purpose and the terms policy of the hosting company. If you really want to know your resource limits on the unlimited shared hositng you should check out the term of service page on your hosting company's website or search resource limit page on the company's website. Some of Hosters don't put any limit on bandwidth but they put limit on hard disk because bandwith might be not measure by companies but the hardisk is subject to measure because it is always limited to the server there is no such word unlimited for hardisk. there is always a limit to it.

    Do web hosting companies provide Unlimited Hosting / Bandwidth ? Is it real ? The short answer is “NO”. No company can afford to provide unlimited hosting to its customers. Providing unlimited hosting needs unlimited servers, bandwidth, electricity, and many more unlimited resource needs, which is practically not possible to provide to customers for cheap prices like Rs. 300 or 400 Rs per month.

    You will find unlimited bandwidth in all the hosting providers' website, Actually it is not unlimited. How much is actually allowed ? It depends on each provider. Yes some allow few GBs and some allow 100s of GBs.

    There is a catch in unlimited hosting in all the hosting companies. Hosting companies generally limit the user from using unlimited hosting and It can be done in many ways and some of them are
    ● Limit the CPU usage
    ● Limit the iNode limit
    ● Limit the IO limit (Disk read / write usage)
    ● Fair usage policy
    ● Storage usage policy (You can not store files which are not necessary for servers)
    ● and many other ways…
