Question:

My site is database-driven and uses 50 GB per month in transfer.  Can I simply use a host with an unlimited transfer plan for $10 per month?

Answer by Web Hosting Ratings:

No.  Most hosts are in business to make money and they would lose money hosting your site.  They have to pay from $0.3 to $5 per GB of transfer to upstream providers themselves.  Almost all hosts that have "unlimited" plans specify in their acceptable use policies that no site can use an "excessive" amount of resources.  If you use too much disk space, bandwidth, or CPU time, these "unlimited" hosts will ask you to upgrade or leave.
