Smartithost.com helps you to create large websites without worrying about ceiling or in other words, the upper limit. It provides for Unlimited space usages and bandwidth that allows you to add any amount of content to the website. People are thinking that hard disk size limited as 6TB, 10TB etc. But how can Smartithost gives unlimited webspace? The actual concept is we do not give unlimited hard disk space, we are giving unlimited usages of web space. It means that if u will use 100 GB space then we will add more hard disk to our server or we will add new server in our network. Like that we will fulfill your unlimited resource usages.

However, Smartithost has certain constraints related to the type of material that may be added to the website. The server does not allow you to upload unnecessary pirated software, unnecessary audio or video files. But audio / video streaming is supported. File sharing with copyrighted file is supported. For example, a software developer can release his software with us, a DJ can publish his album with us without any issue, they are (or, like them) most welcome to our host.

What files can I store on the web-server?
As long as your files tie directly into your website, are legal under applicable laws, and are linked to and displayed on your website, then you can store them on your account. Where possible issues arise is when one user attempts to offload all of their storage needs onto the web-server. It’s important to realize that a web-server, and our hosting network is optimized to handle website related files. The service is not a mass file storage one like Google Drive, Dropbox etc.
For instance if you have a folder with 25GB worth of pictures you’ve taken with your camera over the years. simply uploading these thousands upon thousands of images to your /public_ftp directory for storage is not related to your website. At that point you’d simply be utilizing the web-server as a file repository.
Why don’t I want to store everything on the web-server?
One important factor why you don’t want to cluter up your web-hosting account with un-related files is that our automatic remote backup service is only free on accounts under 10GB in size for Silver and Gold Cloud account. The automatic backup is free up to 30 GB for Business Cloud accounts.
As a shared-hosting customer you share the total web-server resources such as disk space with other customers. As such if everyone decided to upload all of their home photos to the web-server, things could quickly fill up, and you might not have room for store logos, or actual website related content.
Also last but not least, there are storage services available online where the specific purpose of those networks are to store mass volumes of backup data. Offloading your online storage needs to these types of services is generally easier to manage and keep track of than managing your files over FTP.
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 our servers 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.
