Do I get unlimited diskspace and bandwidth?
No, it’s simply not physically possible! Each server has a physical hard drive limit and band width limit, therefore we tell you exactly how much you will get in your plan, so you don’t wake up one morning to find your site offline.
Other providers will offer you unlimited disk space and bandwidth because they know the average user will not use much. This lets them fill up their server with as many customers as possible, and when other users abuse the resources, it’s likely your site will experience downtime.
We limit them number of customers on each of our servers, and everybody knows exactly what they’re able to use, meaning we can provide high level of reliability and uptime.
So what if I need more space?
No worries! Just drop us a note and we can help you upgrade to a plan with more resources.
Can I use Zen Cart for Blogging and to help my online marketing?
