EsoSoft's Unlimited Bandwidth Policy
Truth be told, there really is no such thing
as "unlimited" bandwidth. If any hosting company truly offered
unlimited bandwidth, large sites such as Yahoo would sign up with that
hosting company and save themselves tens of thousands of dollars each
month. If any company does claim to offer completely unlimited
bandwidth, that company is either misleading customers, grossly
inexperienced, or both.
What we mean by unlimited bandwidth is that we will not put any
artificial limits on your account. We monitor all accounts and those
that become "bandwidth hogs" will be invited to make other
arrangements for their site. This is done to assure prompt service to
all of our clients by avoiding the possibility of having our servers
swamped by a few extremely high trafficked sites.
This policy was put in place in 1996. Since then, only two web sites
have been categorized as bandwidth hogs. Both of those sites are still
hosted at EsoSoft -- but they are using our Virtual Server service.
If you are concerned as to whether or not your site would work well
with our Basic Web Hosting service, please contact either our
Sales Department or our
Service & Support Team. They
have a wealth of experience and would be more than happy to assist.
