Originally posted by checkson I have a reseller-account with them since 10 months (previously they were only available for austria and germany). The domain meinwebserver.com and the international offers are rather new.
I am satisfied especially because they always inform me before they block abusers etc. and they have good support. my previous host caused a lot of headache.
What is thier other domain name, the one they use only for austria and germany, and what is the site you have hosted with them.
Everyday I see someone making a post asking if a host that offers "unlimited BW" or "unlimited HD space" is good. I think the WHT mods should sticky a big fat thread that titles: "Unlimited HD and BW hosts are no good". Unlimited resources do not exist, don't expect much from them.

UBW and UDS is possible. Most people don't use that much but it's there for them if they need it. Its the idiots who upload a bunch of things that shouldn't be uploaded that make it so bad. That's where the support and reputation of the company come in. If the company is strict on how the space is used, then it is most certianly possible and profitable. It's all these bad companies that make the sterotypical anti UBW/UDS person.
BlueIon, you are so naive!! I don't think I want hosting from your company... Unlimited Bandwidth and Diskspace is NOT possible. Anyone who's been around long enough knows that (long enough on these forums to know this being say... 1 visit). Anyway, thank-you for giving me my early morning laugh! Although i'm sure now that everyone here is sick of seeing these people talking about unlimited resources. I'm sure someone in the world... somewhere... (maybe NASA?!?!) has some gigantic HDD which seems to be never ending and they will never fill it. But without around say $1,000,000 for your LARGE (not unlimited) HDD then you are ALWAYS limited. As for bandwidth... you can see unlimited bandwidth with some of the best host (a dedicated server recently on offer with unlimited bandwidth is at Server Matrix... I was pretty surprised to see them state "unlimited") but you are always limited by your connection, and if you are sharing it with others then god help you!
Am I getting this all wrong? Hmmm, i've lost my point now... Right, anyway, unlimited, na ah! Not possible.
If you have a personal website then it may be worth the risk because basically it's not that important.
You are right on some things though BlueIon, the companies that offer UBW/UDS or going to suffer if they do not disallow certain things. The "idiots", as you put it, that "upload a bunch of things that shouldn't be uploaded" are either breaking the rules and can be kicked off hosting (problem solved), or if you are referring to uploading alot of data and using alot of data transfer, then why is it so bad? After all.... you know a company that has the worlds only unlimited resource server...
