Unlimited Policy

What does "Unlimited" mean?

It is a reference to our policy of allowing you to use your disk space for anything you need to help power your website. You are also allowed to keep up to four weekly backups of your account on your server, providing you with the best chance to retrieve your data if needed.

What this means is, don’t worry about disk space or data transfer if your website gets popular.

You DO have to worry about other things; if your site isn’t well optimized and is causing issues for other customers on your shared server (like using excessive CPU cycles, or an excess of RAM, or doing lots of read/write operations to the disk), you may be asked to sign up for your own private server after we bring this up with you.

Every web host has a similar, limitation… we just want our customers to know about it ahead of time!

What about databases?

You are allowed to create and use an unlimited number of MySQL databases, but we ask that you try to keep them optimized, and no larger than a few GB in size in order to help ensure server stability. Databases larger than that would be best served by a private server.

What's not allowed in Unlimited?

Websites whose essential purpose is to use disk or bandwidth. When building a website, you should be thinking, How do I make an interesting website while minimizing my storage, bandwidth, memory, and CPU impact as much as possible?

The end result is a better experience for your visitors, your web host, and you!

Here are some specific examples of things not allowed:

  • Copyrighted content to which you do not hold usage or distribution rights.
  • File upload / sharing / archive / backup / mirroring / distribution sites. Sorry, but you can’t use this to build the next Dropbox!
  • A website created primarily to drive traffic to another website (e.g. affiliate marketing website).
  • Making your account resources available (whether for free or pay) to the general public.

That's not "Unlimited!"

Actually, for the average website owner, it is unlimited. The whole purpose of this document is to ensure that the <.1% of people who want to try and run porn affiliate sites, anime video trading forums, or host pirated rips of Cloud Atlas on that it is not happening.

Also, our pledge to you is to do our best to always keep your website, with the content you created, UP.
