Unlimited or Limits in the Terms of Service (ToS)

(editor’s note: unless a webhost uses the term “unmetered” then there is likely a limit somewhere)

Disk Space - Each hosting plan includes prepaid storage capacity on ProperHost servers. Additional disk space is available as an upgrade option.

Traffic - Each hosting plan includes prepaid monthly traffic in Gigabytes. This traffic quota is shared between all sites hosted in a single account. In case that a hosting account exceeds its allowed traffic quota, it will be suspended until the beginning of next month when the quota will refresh automatically. Additional traffic is available as upgrade.

Hosted Domains - ProperHost's hosting plans include domain hosting. Each hosting plan allows a particular number of domains that can be hosted.
E-mail accounts - different number of e-mail accounts are available for setup with each web hosting plan.

MySQL/PostgreSQL Database(s) - MySQL databases are included in all web hosting plans. Additional databases are available as upgrade. PostgreSQL databases can be either included or optional. Contact our sales department for more information.

Database Storage - For Shared Hosting Accounts ONLY: Each hosting account has a limit of database storage. This storage is shared between all the databases in a single hosting account. Additional database storage is available. Contact our sales department for pricing.

IP Address - ProperHost hosting accounts do not include IP addresses. For many customers IP address is important for starting SSL hosts, that's why we allow the purchasing of IP addresses. Additional justification of use may be required. (editor’s note: justification is required by all webhosts)

SSH - In case your hosting account does not include SSH, please contact our sales department for more information on how to obtain it.

ID Protection - ensures that your private contact information will not be visible in the domain's WHOIS details. Optional for all hosting plans, but available only with certain TLDs, supporting this option.
