QUESTION AND ANSWER. Me: Hello, am I allowed to have 300GB of images +media and max out my 3000GB of transfer every month? BlueHost: Yes. Keep in mind though that if you are hitting the 3000gb of transfer on a regular basis you are going to want ot look at a dedicated solution
THE CONFESSION Me: you guys oversell BlueHost: SO do all shared hosting companies BlueHost: You think we are the only ones who do it you r are crazy
BUSINESS LOGIC – WEB SPACE 1 SERVER = 350GB SPACE x 500 USERS = 175,000GB = 175 TB http://whois.domaintools.com/188.8.131.52 SAN 1TB HDD = $300 $300 X 175TB = $52,500 / SERVER Ask Yourself! Do you think they would allocate 175TB per machine in their Storage Area Network? Ask Yourself! Do you think they would pay over $50,000 for each server?
BUSINESS LOGIC – WEB SPACE Q. If they cannot allocate 350GB of space, then how come I see x amount of space used out of 350GB? A. This is a quota, not a partition on the HDD.
BUSINESS LOGIC - BANDWIDTH 3500GB/month =~ 10Mbps commit x 3 $20 x 30Mbps = $600 /month Ask Yourself! Is Lunarpages going to pay an extra $600/month to keep a $6.95/month customer? This is the lowest possible bulk price by Mzima — even we don’t get it at this low!
POWERPOINT DONE Let’s discuss and ask questions!
