In the hosting world, overselling means advertising benefits that a client pays for, but can’t really take advantage of. Some of the options of a given web hosting plan can fall under this category - HDD space, traffic, database storage space, etc. A plan may come with unrestricted disk space, for example, but almost all hosting service providers generate accounts on just a single server which can have a limited number of disk drives and considering that all the customers upload content, there'll be no space left on the server at some point or there will be some secret quotas to make sure that every single client has their own share, even though everybody has paid for unlimited space. Since most internet hosting Control Panels are designed to work on one server, a large number of companies don't really have a choice but to oversell, which is nothing else but tricking their customers.
No Overselling in Cloud Hosting
Overselling is not something we do and we have no reason to do this since our revolutionary cloud platform enables us to provide all the features that we offer as a part of our cloud hosting solutions. Every single part of the service which includes the file and database storage, emails, etcetera, is managed by its separate cluster of servers, which gives us more versatility and scalability when compared to all hosting service providers that work with Control Panels meant to perform on a single machine. We use the tailor-made Hepsia tool, which was designed to work in the cloud and given that we can easily add extra hard disks or servers to every cluster that needs them any time, we just have no reason to oversell. In case you subscribe for one of our plans, you'll really enjoy all system resources which you have paid for.
