i just randomly thought of a question that i don't know the answer to lol, how much disc space do you need before its classed as unlimited? someone told me that there is a certain point in terms of disc space if you go beyond that point you disc space can be classed as unlimited. what is the number?
I would think that to have unlimited disk space, you would have to have unlimited disk space. I am also of the opinion that unlimited disk space doesnt exist. I also feel that if there was such a thing, other factors would make the box puke before you could actually use the unlimited space.
as mentioned already... theres no such thing as unlimited. my mind would wonder what the client needs if they ask for anything over 8gb disk space. I'll be supprised if most sites are over 5gb in size let alone "unlimited".
If somone does have a site over the 5-10gb mark in webspace, I dread to see their bandwidth bills lmao. oh wait most hosts offer unlimited these days dont they lmao.
bottom line is their is no such thing....
closest your get to unlimited is to keep adding hard drives when the space gets close to full. but even then your bound to run out of space to add extra drives in eventually.
then they find out in the Acceptable use policy they are only allowed to use 10GB
its either some sort of low amount like that or its "we can boot you off and/or close ur account without warning when we think you are using too much of our resources" rubbish lmao.
90% of host say "unlimited" because they know the only way a client is going to use close to all their allocated space / bandwidth is if they are either:
a. making a backup of their home/office pc
b. hosting illegal content
which both of the above is againest most/all web hosts AUP or TOS. which their for means, your get the boot anyway and they will more than likely 50% of the time keep your money as its your fault not following their AUP or TOS.
