unlimited accounts?


almost all hosting companies offer unlimited accounts for a reseller plan.
my hosting company also offer me this.. but just they mail me ...

Quote:
however the system shows you as having 132 accounts on the server. Even if these accounts are relatively low usage, they do still affect the speed of the server for everyone else using it, this means we can't put as many users on it.

At this stage I am going to have to cap your current account to prevent any more accounts being created, and you will have to purchase another unit which includes 100 accounts, 5GB space, and 50GB transfer at £xx/month if you wish to host any more domains.
is this fair?

Check the TOS or AUP of your service provider. There should be some language in there about when this threshold occurs.

What a load of rubbish. Check the TOS carefully for any dodgy wording.

yes, checking again their TOS can help. However, it sounds to me a bit overselling thing here. It's happening when you create more accounts on their server, and make it more crowded. Is it still stable or having trouble recently?

132 accounts is a lot for one reseller even if they are low usage. This is why web hosts should not offer unlimited domains.

In 132 account mostly account not using space more then 5MB.
When I signup with him (8 months back) I clear him that I need to compete my local market.
That company one of the famous and big UK company. Also I signup with him after seeing a ad in WHT. I am searching for that ad. And soon I post my reviews about that company so new customers be carefull.

I agree with you. That is a very unfair buiness practice.

I klnow that the more accounts, the more system resources will be used. The reason is that now you have more email address, ftp users, and so on. But the company should have planned ahead for this and if that cannot fullfill that promise of "Unlimited Accounts" then they should not offer that.

This will be called as Cheating !!

If they told you unlimited accnts then they should allow you to create 1000 accnts or 10,000 accnts or more !!

Or if you allow unlimited domains, don't enabled overselling.

eglim, if they promised you unlimited domains, but apply a cap to your number of domains, then they're not delivering what they promised. They promote the unlimited domain model, but choke when someone actually pushes through the 100 domain mark. Check their fine print in their TOS.

Nearly all unlimited resellers do this. Be careful about it, read their TOS and AUP then ask questions about it as well.
