The problem I am faced with being in Japan is that most hosting companies here offer unlimited monthly transfer. They have yet to learn. But do to the fact that it is almost the standard of the industry, I have to compete with that. I am not saying I will offer unlimited transfer but I need to keep this in mind when setting up plans. My competition has somewhat spoiled the local market.
Almost the same..
Here in my country Indonesia, 99,99% web hosting company offer unlimited bandwith. Yes because they know that on average their clients will not consume more than 1 gig data transfer.
In fact, if they found any sites that consume more than 2 gigs data transfer, they will kick it out from their server.
Then, if you could not offer "unlimited bandwith", you will not get any clients here in Indonesia
But I have one question:
If we play "web hosting gambling game"
; we offer umlimited bandwith and then closed any sites that consume more than 3-5 gigs data transfer (of course with a classic reason: that site take a lot of CPU resources) and in the worst case that client contact our uplink provider (NOC), will your uplink provider suspend your dedicated box?
