The limits on 'unlimited' is actually that they are most likely overselling the service. No server can handle truly unlimited space or bandwidth and therefore the hope is that most clients won't use all they are allocated. If their business model includes drastic overselling, then you will see a performance hit to the server as they add more clients to it and therefore your sites will not be serving very fast.
well some forum scripts like IPB have swear filters so if some one were to swear it just shows up as ***.
I think I can understand where you are coming from though. My forums for all ages and I have a few 9 year olds on there along with the parents of some of those and I have to have the rule but adults are allowed to swear in the adult forum only so a swear filter for me does not work.
Although maybe blue host is not right for you if swearing is going to be done and they do not allow it.
Any way hope I was able to help.
The 2 hosts I use for my sites. downtownhost.com / Ninjalion.com and powermonster.net/birdhosting
I just read their TOS. I can't have any foul language on sites hosted by Bluehost?!
haha... I figured you just misread a "no hate speech" rule, but sure enough:
Foul language and profanity in the site content, and in the domain name are prohibited.
Other than a host trying to cash in on the religion crowd, I can't really see why they'd censor content to that extreme... and it wouldn't surprise me if 90% of their customers never read it and are in violation.
You might want to email them directly and ask them to specifically define what's acceptable and how it's enforced.
As it's written, a forum, blog comments, or anything else that allows user input would require very strict moderation.
Having said all that, Bluehost is huge and they have a ton of customers... and I've never heard of a single case where someone got in trouble over a bad word. If I were them, I'd probably remove that line from the TOS, or be more specific and clearly draw out the lines that can't be crossed--if it's a loosely enforced rule.
I don't think any host can offer unlimited bandwidth and disk space. That would mean I think someone can basically take over an entire server and still be okay. That doesn't sound right to me... Do some research.
