The term overselling refers to offering system resources to customers without having the capability to provide them. In simple words, a hosting service provider may advertise a plan with unlimited disk space when, in truth, the client's account will be made on a server with a number of other accounts sharing the total space. To ensure that all users have a share, companies often set hidden quotas for every account and in essence trick their customers about the resources they'll receive. The key reason to oversell is to find new customers despite the fact that service providers do understand that a server can have only so many hard disks. Resellers regularly buy packages with fixed system resources as well, so they are not able to provide the unlimited plans they offer.
No Overselling in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with quite a lot of unrestricted features, but unlike other providers, we don't oversell and we can actually afford to provide unrestricted disk space or databases. What lies behind our assurance is a state-of-the-art cloud platform which incorporates a number of clusters, each managing a certain service - files, email addresses, stats, databases, etc. Since we are able to put as many hard disks or servers to any of the clusters as needed, we can virtually never run out of system resources, so if you pay for anything unrestricted, you'll actually receive it. Our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel was designed exclusively for this custom cloud setup, so if you use a semi-dedicated hosting plan from our firm, you can get the most out of your websites.
