i have been sceptical about sites declaring limitless, especially bandwith, however i saw something which helped me re-think. Communitech.net claim that they can offer limitless bandwith. I looked the website around, searching for any 'limits' around the limitless, and also to be honest i had been surprised. On the website it states, and that i quote "Some in our clients who make the most of our limitless bandwidth feature push out more than 100 Gb of information every month"...

...and I have got a bit of land in the sea available! all beachfront property!

Not convinced!
Yes, they grow bandwidth within their large bandwidth farms so they don't pay for this. And rather than selling it, they provide everything off to their clients free of charge.


I simply told Yahoo, they are moving there immediately.
I required a glance at their website and find out how it may be tempting. Not understanding almost nothing about Communitech, and searching their way significantly, this is what I see:

The tos (TOS) are nowhere found on their own site. They might promise just as much bandwidth as you would like, then nail you if you use excessive assets (like cpu cycles and usage). That is what a few of these companies do. Unless of course you realize to check out the entire picture and find out the TOS, youre going for a large chance.

The greater than 100 gb they make reference to is nearly surely on a single of the devoted servers, where exceeeive utilization of assets isn't a factor.

When they appear to handle limitless bandwidth problem reasonably, there also appears to become a large amount of effort directed into redirection (or misdirection). They stress the truth that they are able to have more bandwidth by obtaining a telephone. Accessibility to bandwidth isn't the problem, having to pay for this is. I actually do see where it's some relevance, or at best they want you to definitely think so. The thing is, they need to purchase their own and you will likely need to pay for yours.

It might be that they're gambling (in line with the most of their accounts) that many will not use much bandwidth, to allow them to promise limitless, knowing most will not even approach reasonable limits. The issues occur if you have possess a popular site and exceed individuals undisclosed limits. What then?

You should not take these remarks from context and select them with that alone, particularly if their overall status is a great one. They are doing appear to provide a lot your money can buy, including some licensed programs. On the other hand, so some terrible hosts, like my 4g iphone.

Like disadvantage males (from confidence, as with the things they gain), the very best ones would be the most impressive, convincing and slickest.
i understand a number of ppl located by communitech, and they are all pleased with the help

Duster, the tos is on the website. Just click the order button and there is an enormous button taking you to definitely anything...you are right...there's a restriction...however, you will not believe what it's...its 17 GB...Each Day!!!, company, this is for virtual hosting...thats 510 gigs of transfer per month!!! thats about as near to limitless as you'll find yourself getting!

You realize, we actually don't have to possess a mention of the TH in each and every thread. It is getting rediculous. Anybody reading through this forum may also observe how TH has screwed quickly by reading through the various posts just below the TH heading, we do not require it to appear in most another threads also!

Admins: Maybe there must be a hosting forum exclusively devoted to TH, since a lot of people happen to be burned by them and want to discuss them in other non-related threads...?
Are you aware they're proclaiming to offer you a Devoted server for that cost of the normal account?

Unlike what lots of people thinks, probably the most costly feature on the server is not this area or even the hd itself... however the bandwidth.

allows say you utilize 17gig / day, this means you max out their connection, so that they must have more servers for his or her other clients... you'll cost them roughly 500$/month just for the bandwidth.

I would recommend that you simply browse the ToS a little more... whether they can cancel youtr accoutn anytime, with no warning... I guess they'd do this when you achieve the 1-2 gig/day

But well i guess, perhapse these men just won millions of and wishes to star a charitable organisation website hosting service

i just read their ToS correctly, and this is what they are saying, "CommuniTech.Net could also at its discretion anytime, suspend use of any client's website without warning, because of over-use of bandwidth (exceeding 17,000MB/day transfer)"

it may sound strange i understand, but thats from their ToS, however i doubt all their located sites pull much bandwith...
Whether it's truly limitless, then why have they got the next indexed by their TOS?

"Sites whose primary purpose is perfect for file distribution or reflecting of the site are strictly prohibited."

seriously..provide them with some credit...you need to admit 17 gigs each day is fairly good, and also to many people it will be almost limitless...now try to look for a number like this...
Then join them! We're suggesting bandwidth have a price, atleast a few dollars per Gig. So 17 Gigs each day would cost atleast $500 month like they are saying. Just don't join there and return here to complain once they shut you do not just whenever your site will get popular.


Don't let provide them with credit for laying and misleading?

they are only a tad over my budget, and anyway, i am already located at www.pcisd.com and i am happy.
And that i don't think they are laying. Most sites claiming limitless on their own page, you discover within their ToS when you end up being using an excessive amount of bandwith, then they'll ask you for extra or something like that...none bother to state Just how much bandwith. In Communitech's contract it clearly states that exceding 17 gigs each day is recognized as mistreating their limitless policy...
Where have you begin to see the bandwidth even pointed out within the contract? I would have skipped it, though I went regarding this two times.

Things I did find was item number 9:

"Excessive Usage

Client concurs to consider all responsibility for those programs including CGI scripts performed under their account. Programs that consume a lot of CPU run time or Ram (RAM) aren't allowed. Client concurs and knows that such unneccessary use might have a bad impact on the performance from the webserver. Client concurs to simply accept responsibility for programs
performed under his/her account, no matter who written this program. Using cgi or html chat scripts or pages is strictly prohibited. CommuniTech.Net provides two (2) acceptable chat programs for clients at no cost. CommuniTech.Net reserves the authority to suspend accounts without warning to clients who violate these terms. CommuniTech.Net has sole discretion over what comprises excessive usage.

Programs supplied by CommuniTech.Net being an installable feature aren't exempt out of this policy. While every efforts is created on CommuniTech.Net's finish to guarantee the program it offers are efficient, issues with excessive usage on particular programs may occur."


Smoke and mirrors, that is what it comes down lower to. Master of prestadigitation (slight of hands methods) use misdirection to concentrate attention elsewhere. So many website hosts.

It might be easy to use a lot of bandwidth with only static HTML pages on the site (remember, CT does not allow much file transfer), but like a practical matter, any web site that draws in taht much traffic will probably have programs which will violate the unnecessary usage clause. Forum/Bulletin boad programs are simply an example. They're a well known program because they assistance to build a feeling of community, yet they are able to consume a lot of assets.

Smoke and mirrors. It will seem like CT might be great for light use, specifically for individuals who've only HTML pages on their own site.
Indeed, the "unlimited bandwidth" problem appears made to attract them as CT (along with other hosts) realize that lots of people concentrate on that problem. However, anybody adding attorney at law program varieties that really make a move, will discover the limitation enforced by cpu usage.

On devoted servers, it might be the best offer, as cpu usage restrictions don't affect other accounts. However, it there have been to obtain an increase of high usage accounts (more than their 100 gb per month account), how lengthy do you consider it might be before everybody would obtain the thirty days notice of a general change in terms?

You will find lies of comission and lies of omission.

The ethics and honesty of the company are as vital to some people every technical choices, even much more. An effort to trick any potential clients means they might make an effort to trick all cstomers. That isn't the kind of company I may wish to conduct business with. You may decide otherwise.

i am not to imply that i am supporting them or anything, when i stated i am located at pcisd and happy, among the finest to understand the way the hell they are able to afford a lot bandwith
I just read anything. If you cannot explain in which the bandwidth is pointed out, installing it most likely will not inflict good. I just read the PDF version online. Maybe the term version differs.

You've skipped the purpose concerning the link between bandwidth and resource usage, and the kind of programs a website has. In fact, lots of sites don't approach the bandwidth limits that many companies have. The cpu usage restrictions on shared servers effectively limit greater bandwith usage accounts. Due to that natural limitation, they do not have to deliver anywhere close to much bandwidth because they promise, a smaller amount pay for this.

Smoke and mirrors. Keep an eye on the bandwidth (this is not on cpu liimitation). Presto! They create your high usage account disappear (suspended)!
I believe good sense would help greatly. If you want to host a website, checck to ascertain if the program you're selecting enables enough bandwidth. Everyone knows there is not this type of factor as limitless.

Consider the host's devoted server/colocation choices. There you need to visit a true cost of the items the host charges for bandwidth.

Also, another board is filled with comments from those who have attempted to operate a well known UBB off a communitech virtual account with problems.

An online account isn't a devoted server, and therefore you cannot be prepared to use all the server assets for less than $20/mo.

Virtual account hosts always say what you would like to listen to around the fron, then TOS you aside when you begin depleting considerable amounts of all things.

If you feel you are able to pull 17G each day from a $20/mo account, please let's all understand how it goes.
Exactly, as well as their best devoted plan costs $1000 per month and provides you 3 Gigs each day. If you think your getting good bandwidth, as well as near to it, for $20, your very naive and never too vibrant.
