Exabytes Merdeka Promo - Exabytes EBiz Gold Unlimited hosting plan

Exabytes Merdeka Promotion - EBiz Gold Unlimited hosting plan

Think twice before subscribe the Exabytes EBiz Gold Unlimited hosting plan

Wow, Exabytes’ EBiz Plus Unlimited hosting account at promotion price RM5XX (normal price RM798), sound good!

Well, do you really need unlimited features and are you able to commit RM798 for the subsequence years? (as you know promotion price is a one-time discount, next hosting renewal price will be the original price before discount).

I like unlimited plan too. By the way, what can I do to an unlimited hosting account where it has very strict T&C? Honestly, with my current Exabytes’ hosting account (EBiz Plus Linux normal price RM269) limits-

  • 10000MB/10GB Disk Space Usage
  • 50000MB/50GB Monthly Bandwidth Transfer
  • 10 Addon Domains

I can’t even used up to 50% resources of disk space and bandwidth transfer on 8 hosted domain names websites.

So is it necessary need an unlimited hosting account? It depends on your website’s need. Please ensure your new website plan will not against Exabytes’ legal policies. Exabytes is not stupid, they offering such unlimited hosting accounts of cause they are prepared and ready.

Consider other hosting packages offered by Exabytes

If you really like them, yes the Exabytes. Please try out their cheapest package first (EBiz Plus Web Hosting), you will find it actually sufficient for your requirement. Anyway you can upgrade to unlimited plan anytime.

Other unlimited hosting plan providers

I have an unlimited hosting account (‘Baby’ package) with Hostgater.com and I paid USD214.80/RM800 for 2 years in advanced. Yes, it is the same as what Exabytes offering, but it has more tolerance legal policies and at cheaper price (Exabytes RM798 for 1 year vs Hostgater RM800 for 2 years). With its ‘not-so-tied’ legal policies or at least not bond to Malaysia laws such as Islamic and politic related materials, it give me more flexibility and ‘globalised’ not ‘localised’ on hosting conditions.

I would not said Hostgator.com is the best, but so far I can’t find any cheaper and better review on unlimited hosting accounts from the Internet; Godaddy.com is good but its unlimited plan is more expensive (USD323.76/RM1,200 for 2 years) than Hostgator.com even though it is my favourite.

If you know some, kindly share with me.

Bottom line

Unlimited hosting plan sounds attractive but remember you will have heavier commitment and tons of work to do when transferring/downgrading the account.

UNLIMITED Disk Space, UNLIMITED Bandwidth Transfer, UNLIMITED Domains/Web sites Allowed Hosting?

If you are looking for a web hosting service provider that able to provide you the above plan, please read on.

Godaddy.com and Hostgator.com may your choice for consideration:

  1. Monthly subscription plan available
    Godaddy – Unlimited Plan: USD14.99/month
    Host Gator – Baby Plan: USD9.95/month
    (pay more months get more discounts)
  2. Reliability
    Godaddy: I have been subscribed to Godday web hosting plan for nearly 4 years, so far have no complaints on its service (emailing ok, renewal ok, server response time ok, uploading and downloading ok).
    Host Gator: One of my client is currently subscribes to Host Gator – Baby Plan, so far there’s no problem to his 1.5TB size of web files transferring and viewing.
  3. Competitive Price on UNLIMITED Plan in the Market
    There are many web hosting service providers can offer cheap + good + full features web hosting plan, but not many take risk to offer “UNLIMITED” plan. Even they do, their plan is not as cheap as Godaddy or Host Gator.
  4. Server and Bandwidth Performance
    As you know there’s one big disadvantage hosted the website on the unlimited plan server- no control over the bandwidth and disk space will slow the bandwidth and server down, indirectly affected other websites hosted on the same server. But with Godaddy and Host Gator’s data centre facilities, network infrastructure and server conditions, they do have the ability to cater the demand of unlimited plan.
  5. Web Hosting Policy
    Godaddy and Host Gator do not question your web content or its usage as long as not against their policy agreement. Video sharing, politics content, adult content are allowed by them.
  6. Unlimited Number of MySQL Databases
    An additional “unlimited item” included in the plan.

Please feel free to share your view if you have any comment/opinion.
