Exactly ... they don't say as this depends on how many customers and what type of customers they have on each server. Servers have a limit. A limit on disk space, RAM ... etc.
If your site started using alot of RAM this would start to effect the other customers on your server and this would result in eg: suspension of services.
Shared hosting services and prices aren't going to allow you to use VPS/VDS/Dedicated resources ...
For example on a VPS you know you can max it out and it effects nobody but you as the resources are isolated too you but, shared will effect everyone on the same server and this then brings you to the attention of the provider.
The actual resources allowed amount varies provider to provider but, you'll know when you hit it and your site is suspended and or similar.
A bad sign is 'unlimited' this and 'unlimited' that as that sends warning signals that all they're interested in is getting as many customers as they can on a server and if your site uses resources then your costing them potential money and the advertised price they won't let you get a good dig at the server resources.
Disk space is easy and cheap to provide but RAM and system resources isn't and at shared hosting prices somethings gonna give and it won't be them
Hope this helps.
