    * Vps Overloaded

    Please,

    When a VPS is overloaded?

    If I am using space quota and bandwith whitin the limits , can I really open unlimited accounts/domains?

    Some providers say in their web sites: UNLIMITED DOMAINS, but then, they limit the domains to 100 / 150 / etc....

    Why???

    thanks

    The unlimited domains normally means what the license for the control panel lets you do. cPanel and DirectAdmin have unlimited licenses but Plesk comes with 30,100 and unlimited varients (is there another on in there)

    However beyond that you will most likely hit RAM limits before anything else.

    a true VPS shouldn't have any limits on domains, only the control panels.

    Bandwidth limits
    Unmetered - Not counted traffic on 10/100/1000Mbit port
    Unlimited - Impossible, you can't use 35TB/mo on a 100Mbit port, even in LAN

    Accounts limits
    Eg:
    A server with 512MB of ram can host
    » 9/10 sites which need 51.2MB of RAM
    » 90/100 sites which need 5.12MB of RAM
    » 900/1000 sites which need 0.512MB of RAM [HTML Only]

    A lot of websites, but it's still limited

    Resource limits
    Cpu power is limited!
    Memory is limited!
    HDD Space is limited!
    Connection speed is limited!

    The fundamental problem is that every domain takes up some space on a hard drive. Since all hard drives have finite capacities, and there are a finite number of hard drives in the world, there's a (very large) upper limit on the number of domains that a host can provide. So they can't be (absolutely) unlimited. What this typically means is that the host doesn't change an extra fee for each new domain hosted, so you can host, for a constant price, as many domains as you can fit within the parameters of your account's limitations (hard drive storage is generally the first limit that a user might hit).

    If you have anything "unlimited" this basically means it has no set limits.

    However, in pratcie limits exist.

    Would you buy a car with an unlimited top spead ?

    So, let's ban the hosts, which provide the term 'unlimited'. 'unmetered' is a term, which says many things. Let them use the term instead.

    So, as 'unlimited' is (supposedly) banned for disk-space or bandwidth, let it get banned for number of domains also...

    So they can't be (absolutely) unlimited.
    Right. They remain unlimited, till they don't bother you. 'Unmetered' is a better term.
