What do you mean “Unlimited”?
What we mean is, you don’t have to worry about disk storage or network transfer when your site gets popular.
You DO still have to worry about plenty of other things though… if your site isn’t well optimized and is causing issues for others on your shared server (either because it’s pounding the CPU, hogging RAM, or doing tons of disk I/O), you may be asked to sign up for your own RivalHost Private Server.
Trust us, every host out there has exactly the same limitations… we’re just trying to be up front about them!
What about databases?
You’re certainly allowed an unlimited number of MySQL databases, but in the interest of server stability we request that you try to keep them optimized and no larger than a 2-3 GB in size.
What’s not allowed in “Unlimited”?
Basically, sites whose essential purpose is to use disk or bandwidth.
When making a website, you should be thinking about “How can I make an interesting site for my visitors while minimizing my server storage, bandwidth, file system, memory, and cpu impact as much as possible?”
The result will be a better experience for your visitors, your web host, and yourself!
- Copyrighted content to which you do not hold usage or distribution rights.
- File upload / sharing / archive / backup / mirroring / distribution sites.
- A site created primarily to drive traffic to another site.
- Making your account resources available (whether for free or pay) to the general public.
Hey, that doesn’t sound very “Unlimited” to me!
Actually, for you, my dear Legitimate Website Owner, it is unlimited.
This whole page is just to announce to the <.1% of people who want to try and run free porn affiliate sites or anime video trading forums or host pirated rips of The Dark Knight on RivalHost that we’re not having any.
But our pledge to you is to do our best to always keep your website, with the content you created, UP…
All About Security
What do you mean “Secure Hosting”?
What we mean is, we do more and go farther to keep your data safe.
We understand that one security solution for all web sites or situation simply no longer applies in today’s complex world. We apply multiple layers of protection and methodologies the “secret sauce” we like to call it, to keep your data more secure than most.
If United states Intelligent Agencies along with billion dollar companies can get hacked it’s highly unlikely a shared hosting account with us or any other host can withstand a determined hacker or nation state but you can rest assured dollar for dollar we provide a more secure hosting network than most.
You DO still need to worry about keeping your web site software updated. 95% of all hacks are the direct result of outdated software that the end-user has failed to keep updated and patched. Whether you are running WordPress, Joomla, or any other CMS you should always run the latest versions including plugins and modules.
