UNMETERED.WebSite - How Unlimited is UNMETERED?
UNMETERED.IO's unlimited web hosting plans allow your website to use as much disk space and bandwidth as it needs.
Website files: You are allowed to store all types of files including images, audios and videos that are an integral part of your website.
Data Transfer: Serve your content to as many users as you like.
What is not allowed?
Backups: You are not allowed to use your account to store backups of your computer, smartphones, handheld devices, etc. Please use Dropbox, Apple, Google, etc. for storing backups of your devices.
Photo and Video backups: You are not allowed to store backups of photos and videos in your account. This service is also provided by Dropbox, Apple, Google, etc.
Shared account: You are not allowed to use your account to provide web hosting to your family or friends. To host websites for others, please upgrade to our Reseller Hosting plans.
File Sharing: You are not allowed to use your account for sharing any types of files.
Streaming: You are not allowed to host streaming content from your account.
What is the catch?
Server resources like CPU, RAM, etc. are shared with other websites in a shared web hosting environment. While your website may use unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth, it will have a generous yet limited access to server resources.
We offer easy upgrades in simple steps for fast growing websites that need access to dedicated resources. Please contact us to learn more about our VPS account and dedicated servers.
We hope to have answered all your questions about our Unlimited Policy. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us.
How much included storage and bandwidth?
There are no set limits on the storage space or bandwidth that we provide in our shared hosting plans. We want you to have the resources you need to build a great online presence, and 99.95% of all customers will have more than enough storage space and bandwidth to meet their needs. That being said, we do require all customers to be fully compliant with our Terms of Service and utilize storage space and bandwidth in the normal operation of a personal or small business website. While it is rare, we may need to put constraints on accounts that are using resources beyond what would be expected in the normal operation of a personal or small business website. Typically, customers only run into issues if they use their accounts for storage or file sharing, which is not what our services are intended to support. In accordance with our Terms of Services the storage space and bandwidth you use must be integrated into the normal operation of your website.
What happens if I exceed "normal" usage?
What happens if I exceed "normal" usage? If we have concerns about your account's bandwidth or storage space utilization, you will receive an email asking you to reduce usage. Generally, we provide customers with a minimum of 48 hours to make adjustments before taking the account offline. Again, the most common situations involve customers who use their accounts for storage of files—particularly multimedia files—that are not linked off of their websites. It is very rare for a customer who is managing a personal or small business website to exceed normal usage.
How do you determine "normal" operation for Shared hosting plans?
We regularly run customer bandwidth and storage space utilization through a series of statistical analyses and use the results of these studies to define normal. Although the actual results of these analyses vary from month to month, one thing remains constant: 99.95% of our customers fall into "normal" range. Typically, customers who fall outside the normal range are using their accounts for file storage or sharing rather than hosting. If you have a question about whether your website will fall into the normal range, please contact our team. We'll be happy to talk about your specific needs before your purchase.
