Unlimited Web Hosting? Better Read the Fine Print
Author: Anthony Hamill
OK, so unlimited hosting sounds tempting. And if you operate a number of small business websites, you probably ought to consider some of the options for unlimited multiple domain hosting. But before you sign up you'd better examine all the details of any unlimited web hosting plan you may be considering.
Some unlimited web hosting plans place no limit on the number of domains you may operate for one flat monthly rate which can be quite attractive. Other plans allow you to operate what may as well be unlimited for most people's purposes: 10, 20, 30 or more domains.
Don't make the mistake of confusing "unlimited domains" with unlimited resources. These plans come with a fairly generous allotment of storage and bandwidth which can be shared across all the domains on your hosting plan. But few provide totally free unlimited file storage and bandwidth.
Unlimited plans can be highly economical for the online business owner who wants to operate multiple websites without the hassle, and expense, of having to keep up with a separate plan for each.
Who will manage your websites?
There are a few things to be aware of with unlimited web hosting plans. One is that they are usually set up under a single account. This means that if you plan to have each web site managed by a different webmaster you'll experience a security risk from sharing the account password.
How much do you really need?
Another thing to watch out for is the temptation to sign up for an unlimited web hosting plan if you don't actually need one. While they provide terrific value for what they offer, if you don't actually need unlimited hosting you'll be overpaying. You can host a single web site for a very cheap monthly rate.
