What exactly does the term 'overselling' have to do with web hosting? Why discovering a web host that doesn't oversell is so essential?
The term overselling refers to offering resources to clients without having the capacity to provide them. In simple words, a hosting company could advertise a plan with infinite disk space when, in reality, the customer's account will be created on a server with various other accounts sharing the total space. To make sure that all of the customers have a share, providers often set hidden quotas for every account and thus deceive their clients about the resources they will benefit from. The main reason to oversell is to get new customers despite the fact that providers fully understand that a web server can have only so many hard disk drives. Resellers usually purchase packages with limited resources too, so they cannot provide the unlimited plans they offer.
No Overselling in Shared Website Hosting
If you buy one of our shared website hosting packages, you'll get what you have paid for with no exceptions. We don't oversell and we'll provide you with all the system resources that you can see on our Internet site for each of the packages. Even the features which are listed as unlimited don't have hidden quotas and we can afford that because we use an extremely powerful custom web hosting platform. Instead of generating accounts on one server like a large number of companies do, we have clusters of servers controlling every single part of the web hosting service - file storage, database access, emails, stats, and so on. Therefore, the system resources are practically endless since we can keep adding hard disk drives or whole servers to the clusters. Unlike all mainstream Control Panels, our Hepsia tool was intended to work on such a platform.
