Web hosts arenít going to advertise fact that they oversell. Itís not something that will gain them customers and itís likely to drive away a few. In general however, theyíre likely to get away with it without any real problems. The reason idea even exists is that it is true that majority of websites donít use all of space thatís allocated to them. The problem is that itís not a particularly honest way of dealing with clients. Itís a little like ĎEmperorís New Clothesí where host is just hoping that no one notices fact that a package is in fact a little nude.
Overselling will generally not be a problem unless a host gets too greedy and ends up selling much more than they could possibly provide for. On other hand, itís not even necessary as host can usually make enough money to make ends meet without overselling. It will generally be quite difficult for you to find out whether or not a host oversells unless they specifically advertise it, or theyíre well known for having problems due to excessive overselling. Just make sure you do some research and choose a reliable host, not necessarily one that appears to offer ridiculous amounts of bandwidth or disk space for far too little money.
