A Note about "unlimited" storage and traffic: While a number of hosting companies proclaim that their hosting accounts include unlimited traffic and storage,
you should be aware that most do in fact place some limits - normally when your account's share is judged to impact on the operation of other accounts on the same server.
As well, most hosting companies limit the load your web site places on the CPU of your shared server; the load limit is usually in the 2.5 to 5% range. If your site
will rely heavily on CGI, PHP, etc rather than plain HTML expect that your CPU use will be higher. If you want to host a site with really significant traffic,
don't expect to do this on a budget hosting account. You will need to invest in hosting with a dedicated server of your own.
