Question:

How can hosts make money offering high transfer limits for low prices?

Answer by Web Hosting Ratings:

They count on the fact that the majority of sites won't use anywhere close to the full amount of transfer available.  This overselling is usually a valid assumption and it is done in many other business (ex. airlines).
