Overselling Web Hosting: What does it mean to you?

Written by Daniel Punch

Overselling is a big trend inrepparttar web-hosting world atrepparttar 137103 moment. It’s an easy way to get more out of your servers than normally is possible. The basic idea of overselling is thatrepparttar 137104 majority of your clients are only going to use a fraction ofrepparttar 137105 resources allocated to them so there’s going to be a lot of wasted bandwidth and space. Overselling involves taking a gamble and selling more than you can handle assuming thatrepparttar 137106 unused resources will cover it.

Let’s say for example that a server hard drive is 80GB and has 1200GB of bandwidth. The hosting company has a look around and decides that to be competitive they need to offer plans with 2GB of disk space and 40GB bandwidth. With these figures they can only offer 30 hosting packages per server. This leaves quite a bit of wasted disk space and after a few monthsrepparttar 137107 company will probably notice that their users aren’t using all ofrepparttar 137108 available bandwidth. Because of thisrepparttar 137109 company then assumes that it can safely sell at least 10 more packages onrepparttar 137110 one server. Ifrepparttar 137111 original number of customers already covers general costs thenrepparttar 137112 extra packages provided by overselling are pure profit.

The advantage of overselling forrepparttar 137113 host is that they make more money off each server than they otherwise normally would be able to. The advantage forrepparttar 137114 client is that this extra revenue is usually transferred on (at least in theory) by cheaper hosting packages with more features. The problem is that these features are often ‘smoke and mirrors’. A few users would be able to use their entire allotment without any trouble, but if every single client were to build their website up to maximum capacityrepparttar 137115 host wouldn’t be able to handlerepparttar 137116 sudden increase in demand without adding extra hard drives, buying more bandwidth, or perhaps even another server. This would most likely lead to a fair amount of downtime.
