If you go on the need in search of a hosting service, you will not be surprised to see the words ‘unlimited features’ in the packages offered by hosting providers. There are many companies that can provide customers with massive resources but only a handful of clients are able to fully use the resources provided to them.
Like in any other industry there will always be some major players that dominate the sales while another group of players have poorer sales. This is similar to the eighty twenty rule. So, many hosting companies use ‘unlimited features’ because they are forced to. Instead of competing on who provides more, they rather just claim that they provide everything. No matter it are more or less resources, things can be done with just a click of a button on the website’s control panel. With no extra or special work needed for it, providers have no hesitation at all to offer unlimited resources. While more and more companies are performing this action, they still have to compete in order to secure more clients. They will have to offer extra features like Ruby on Rails in order to stay in the competition.
It use to be a thing that customers are weary of when it comes to unlimited resources because they suspect that the providers are running on cheap hardware and this might affect their website’s performance. It used to be the case but with today’s cheap price on hardware, things are different. The performance of the website will not be degraded. This is due to the improve technology making things better than before. So, in no time at all, all web hosting provider will be offering unlimited resources because it will be an industry standard. Any company that do not provide this will just be left out.
So, now you understand why providers are all coming up with these sorts of packages. It is a need for evolution in the industry. If they do not offer, they will be out of business. Therefore, they need to provide unlimited resource packages to stay in the game. So, we can be sure that all companies will be offering this kind of packages in the near future.
