    You can't compare the magnitude of infinities, and all the major shared web hosts offer unlimited bandwidth. I suggest you create a thread of your own in an appropriate forum, this isn't the place to ask about a host

    Yes but this isn't necessarily a good thing because there is no such thing as unlimited anything.

    Many people will tell you it's better to stay away from the 'unlimited' hosting and go for one with limits.

    what if you later on decide to add videos? It saves changing hosts if you start out with lots of space and bandwidth.

    Yes by "one with limits" I didn't mean one with small resources but real resources. By choosing a 'unlimited' host you may reach CPU limits by adding videos resulting in termination. The truth is the only way to know a web hosts true limits is by reading their terms or service/acceptable usage policy.

    800 GB space and 8 000 GB Bandwidth is their limitation even on the lowest plan. Like to know about share hosting that Dan mentioned.

    I would recommend you do not signup for unlimited bandwidth if you need a lot of bandwidth.

    werkz,

    That means that anyone offering unlimited anything is limiting you by some other measure (i.e., CPU or RAM usage). If you "bite" on deceptive advertising, you deserve what you get (a poor experience with that host).

    Regards,

    Hi David,
    so far so good. I'd like to hear from Dan Grossman when he talks about share hosting being unlimited. Unlimited by what? I think we have to draw the line somewhere.

    He said the host offered the "most bandwidth", so I'm talking about unlimited bandwidth.

    HostGator, BlueHost, Lunarpages, Site5, Dreamhost, HostMonster, Globat, HostRocket, 1&1 all offer unlimited bandwidth. I think that's the bulk of the major shared hosting providers.

    My point is that since they all offer this, having the "most bandwidth" is neither possible nor a good way to compare hosts.

    I suggest you go with a host that does not offer unlimited anything as of course it is a marketing gimmick, and they will shut you down if you use too much of what they got. Find a company that suits your needs, and you will be happy

    Thanks Dan,
    1 and 1 years ago had a threshing in forums and I hope they have lifted their game since. I am hoping hat someone here can tell of experiences with the other companies. What support and how helpful are they when control panel is limited in what one can do.

    dlprentice, thanks for the link

    I think that would be reasonable discuss with your web hosting beforehand. I think you will make sure in the such way that you will not be limited by RAM or CPU
