It’s true that some hosts claim to offer ‘unlimited’ space. The reality is that unlimited space is actually nothing more than a marketing gimmick – the host will have a large number of other restrictions in place which will prevent you from actually using an very large amount of disk space. We prefer to be up-front about disk allocations, with no sneaky surprises. Our focus is on quality, and we invest heavily in ensuring that our hosting platform is the best possible. We use highly available block storage – it’s significantly faster than traditional SATA based storage, or even standalone SSD drives. We store your data three times for full redundancy, in addition to taking backups.
The truth is, you probably don’t need ‘unlimited’ disk space. Over 95% of sites we host on our shared platform use less than 10GB, so our plans are usually more than adequate for most needs. If your priority is for unlimited space, hosts that offer this usually do so using cheap disks, and often have overcrowded servers. We always want our focus to be on quality, and ensuring that our customers always enjoy the best possible speed and reliability for their websites.
