Why not “Unlimited”?
The term “Unlimited” is usually applied when a host is overselling bandwidth in a limited environment. They count on each site using less than their allotment, so they can sell the same bandwidth twice. Your site is put on a massive shared server with hundreds of other sites, and while there are no caps on usage, if another site gets a zillion hits and starts hogging the bandwidth, all the other sites on the server get bogged down to compensate.
What happens if I max out my bandwidth?
We won’t shut down your site if you overuse your bandwidth. If you’re getting close to maxing out your plan, we’ll let you know, so you can upgrade your plan if you choose. Any overages will be charged at rates of 0.2¢/MB for bandwidth, and 2¢/MB for disk space.
Your first overage is free! (Up to 5GB Bandwidth/500MB Disk Space) The first overage charge will be credited back to you on your bill. Your free pass if you forget to upgrade in time!

How long does it take to get started?
For hosting, once you’ve checked out and paid, your registration and server information should arrive within the hour.

If you still haven’t received your information after an hour, please contact us and we’ll get it sorted out.
For domains, in order to prevent fraud, we activate the accounts manually. This takes a bit longer, but you can expect your order to be processed within one business day. If you still haven’t received your information after 24 hours, please contact us and we’ll get it sorted out.
