Zero Overselling Policy
How does it work?
Do you really know what you are paying for? At GigaPros, we follow ONE simple rule – “You EXACTLY get what you pay for”. No excuses, no gimmicks, no lies. This page will tell you the exact amount of hosting resources that you are going to get for your money. We clearly publish two things for you to see:
a) Server Specification: This shows you the total resources available on a server.
b) Resource Distribution: This is how we distribute the resources among our customers.
The following resource limits apply to our shared / reseller hosting plans. Believe it or not, the following limits are very generous for any website hosted on a shared server, even for a fairly busy website. You won’t even come close to the following limits unless you are running a very badly coded script or intentionally abusing the server.
If you compare these limits with any other web host (if they ever publish these limits at all), you will be surprised to see that their max limits are much more restrictive…as much as 4-10 times! That’s exactly what happens when a host sells unbelievably huge resources at a very cheap price. To remain in business, they have to cramp 500-1000 shared accounts on a single server (and sometimes even more!). And, we don’t even want to get into the discussion about what happens when a host does such a huge overselling.
We will NEVER put more than 200 shared hosting accounts on any single server under any circumstances because that will trigger an oversold condition, which is strictly against our Zero Overselling Policy.
We do not put any restriction on the disk space that your website’s script files (html, php files etc) may consume. However, we do enforce a maximum limit of 10 GB towards the storage of any media files (music & videos).
We do not put any restriction on the bandwidth that your website traffic may consume. You may use as much bandwidth as you want without worrying for any additional charges from us.
We will NEVER put more than 30 reseller hosting accounts on any single server under any circumstances. In fact, if there are more customers who purchased higher resource packages on the server, then there will be even less number of reseller hosting accounts on the server. Please note that each of the reseller hosting accounts have the capability of creating any number of CPanel accounts within itself, as long as the reseller account remains within the limit of total disk space and bandwidth allocated to it.
At GigaPros, each server is equipped with 1000 GB of hard disk. Every hard disk is fault tolerant thru RAID mirrors. Out of the total 1000 GB of disk space, we reserve 200 GB for the operating system, server software, swap space etc. The remaining 800 GB of disk space is distributed among a maximum of 30 reseller accounts.
At GigaPros, each server has a total bandwidth (traffic) limit of 6000 GB per month. Out of the total 6000 GB of bandwidth, we reserve 1000 GB for administrative purposes such as downloading updates for operating system, updates for server software, daily backups, server monitoring etc. The remaining bandwidth of 5000 GB is distributed among a maximum of 30 reseller accounts.
