    Yes it's true! (Sort of) Some hosting companies even say Unlimited storage and bandwidth!!! How do they do it? Well most of them sell out multiple accounts on one server this is called shared hosting. So lets say they buy a server for $2,000 they lock you and 100 other people in to a shared hosting account at $17/m that comes out to $20,400 a year! Another thing hosts will not normally tell you is read the fine print they might disconnect you for "Excessive bandwidth use", yep it might say 45TB but if you start using even a small percentage of that they might all of a sudden decide you aren't worth keeping around.

    So basically it comes down to what will you be using your server for? For 85% of users a shared hosting account would work just fine.

    Thanks. Just knew that this is possible.
    Shouldn't they also have overhead cost and other cost?

    I don't believe such unlimited space or transfer.
    There's always limitation on things. Rite?

    there's no such thing is unlimited. even the 1gb connection has it limits.

    the offer seems to be true since the hardidisk space seems getting cheaper by the MB/dollar these days.

    45TB for connection if they are having GB connetion is fine, if they are in 10 or 100MB connection it seems impossible.

    anyone experinced with them maybe? I checked, its a reseller of serverduo.

    without giving you the hard numbers on what its limited to so... you get a traffic spike because your new blackhat technique worked... ACCOUNT SUSPENDED! go with a host with set limits, that arent insane, then you know you wont get suspended for spikes anything near as easy

    fucking marketing lol
