What exactly does the word 'overselling' have to do with hosting? Why locating a web host that doesn't oversell is so important?
The word overselling refers to offering system resources to customers while lacking the capacity to provide them. In simple words, a web hosting firm could advertise a plan with unrestricted disk space when, in reality, the client's account will be generated on a server with many different other accounts sharing the total space. To guarantee that all customers have a share, providers often set hidden quotas for every account and thus deceive their clients about the resources they'll receive. The key reason to oversell is to find new customers despite the fact that providers do understand that a web server can have only so many hard disk drives. Resellers frequently buy plans with restricted system resources as well, which means that they cannot provide the unlimited plans they offer.
No Overselling in Shared Hosting
Overselling isn't something we do and we have no reason to do this because our state-of-the-art cloud platform allows us to provide the features that we offer as a part of our shared hosting plans. Every single element of the service for example the file and database storage, email addresses, etcetera, is handled by its own cluster of servers, which gives us more versatility and scalability in comparison with all web hosting providers which employ Control Panels meant to perform on a single machine. We employ our in-house made Hepsia software tool, that was created to work in the cloud and given that we can easily add extra hard disks or servers to any cluster that needs them at any time, we just have no reason to oversell. When you sign up for one of our plans, you'll really receive all system resources that you've paid for.
