Unlimited Disk Space? How is That Possible?
While it may sound unrealistic - it's true. With ChickHost you receive unlimited disk space and bandwidth - we guarantee it.
A logical question you might ask, where do you get your unlimited hard drives from? The answer is - we don't. We use 3TB hard drives in RAID arrays, and this is a massive amount of space for web hosting users.
We are able to provide unlimited space as not all clients require huge amounts of space on the server. For example, there might be 10 clients who need 1GB of space and then 1 client who needs 20GB. That's no problem for us. * Fair usage applies, see Terms of Service.
Then what's the trick? There are no tricks at all. You get what you see. When you activate your account you may login to your cPanel and you will see your online disk space.
Can I Store Anything I Want on the Account?
This might be one of the important things to be noted, that while we do not limit the space your account takes up on our server, we still require that the uploaded contents comply with our Terms of Service (as well as the laws of USA & UK).
Of course, you should never host copyrighted content like movies or music. Same applies to abusive or illegal content (like child pornography) on our servers. Any such content found on the account is removed, account may be disabled and we may even take legal actions and report to legal instances on rare cases of extreme abuse.
Unlimited Bandwidth and Speed
We are using our own servers, all collocated in Immedion data centre. Our Data centre provides us with unlimited bandwidth at multiple 1GB/s lines. We are not greedy, that is why we allow our users to use it without any limits as well. We are constantly monitoring our lines for abusive, DDoS activity, however normal, every day type of activity does not cause any harm and is allowed.
That said, for example, 1-5 GB bandwidth per account, per day is not even noticed on our monitoring software. You may of course, transfer a lot more if needed, there is no cap. Of course if your account receives 1GB per second of traffic or sends terabytes of data per day, it might not be tolerated (as it starts slowing down the whole network, causing problems for other users), it's far from any normal activity, which regular users browsing your site can never cause.
