Of course there are certain members here who defend this kind of pricing fervently because they also offer it and claim not to over sell.

blue27,

There are also others that make insane claims as well:

http://www.google.ca/search?q=best+canadian+host
That said we leave them in their corner all to themselves.

There is good overselling and bad overselling.
There are good hosts and there are bad hosts.

This one seems to have jumped right into the latter of each, that doesn't mean everyone follows the same suit however.

Why do you assume I was referring to you HP-David? Touch a nerve did I?

If every single user on my servers uses their full resources I won't have any problems and I will still be making money. Can you honestly say the same?

Thanks questmaster.
It's a template that hasn't made the warez rotation yet so it's not as common as most template based sites.

blue27,

You certainly didn't touch a nerve, I have a lack of interest in petty fights but with your "best in canadian webhosting" it looked like an easy potshot I could take and win.

You offer the "Best in canadian webhosting" yet I doubt you could beat some random custom insane loadbalanced setup by some random unnamed DC, does that make you a liar?

"If every single....."

Sure, as I work hourly and am paid hourly. Thanks nonetheless for your interest in my financial details!

And just a note: It isn't exactly Canadian hosting if it's in the US, is it?

Apparently I did touch a nerve as you seem to feel it's necessary to defend your business practices every time I post about overselling.
I make the claim of being the best in Canadian hosting with great confidence and to date I have not been proven wrong.

I notice you conveniently avoided the real question about whether you could deliver what you promise though. Well done.
