Web Hosting Scams
In order to help you avoid getting scammed by the unscrupulous hosts that do exist, we put together the most common ' tricks' used by such companies :
Unlimited bandwidth/space :
- it is simply impossible for a company to offer unlimited space or bandwidth to use. As hosting companies and their associated technologies are themselves limited (i.e. bandwidth or hard disk space), unlimited offerings are usually just an advertising gimmick. Often you will find clauses embedded deep within the company's terms of service (TOS) that negate the unlimited offering. The clauses are usually arbitrary, such as excessive CPU usage will be ground for account termination. Whenever you visit a site promoting "Unlimited Bandwidth" as one of the account features, be sure to visit their Terms of Service. Read the fine text about the so-called "Unlimited" disclaimer, you will be surprised! We have noticed that many hosts are now using a theory that not all customers will use the same amounts of bandwidth, meaning that they will be able to provide customers that use bandwidth, the extra needed. That is true, but what happens if the host has many customers that seem to be using over the bandwidth averages?
What exactly is space and bandwidth/data transfer ?
Disk space is the size your website can be. Every single letter on your website has to be stored somewhere on your web host's server. Each letter is one byte, and a megabyte is roughly one million bytes. HTML pages are usually very small, but it is the extra images, scripts, and even databases that can take up large amounts of disk space. Bandwidth/Transfer is the amount of data the server will allow your site to send in a month. Transfer is usually measured in gigabytes - billions of bytes. Once you go over your monthly limit, a host may either shut your site down for the remainder of the month or it can charge you 'overage.. Bottom line: even hosting companies on any type of server has LIMITED space, therefore, no hosting company can offer unlimited space.
No way to contact the company :
- some hosts simply make it impossible to contact them! Even getting an email address so that you can get a hold of them can be a chore. Many cheap hosts prefer to keep communication down. NEVER signup with a company which does not offer a phone number for support! See "about web hosting".
Long term contracts only :
while cheaper plans may offer an annual only plan, some hosts provide annual service exclusively. There is no guarantee that even though you have paid them for 12 months that you will get 12 months of service. You should choose a hosting company which offers NO contract - meaning: you sign up on a monthly basis and you are free to leave anytime. If the company feels confident its service is valuable, this is the plan they will offer, versus a yearly contract which can become a burden if the client is not happy.
What is Web Hosting ?
Web hosting is the act of renting space and bandwidth through a company so that you may publish your web site online. You can either opt for free hosting that is usually supported with banners and pop ups, or may opt to get paid web hosting, which gives you complete control over your site contents.
