Unlimited mailing lists are another feature for unlimited web hosting. Mailing lists serve as an important tool of communication with your visitors. These are often used for distribution of site newsletters or email discussion forums to your visitors. Most providers offer Majordomo as their mailing list program. This program is very hard to learn. You can find other mailing lists from many independent websites that are cheap and free.
Unlimited web hosting services that offer 'unlimited bandwidth' may be making false claims. You must ask the web hosting service how they define the term 'unlimited bandwidth'. If they use 'unlimited bandwidth' to refer to 'unlimited hits' then they do not have the right definition for the term 'bandwidth'. Hits refer to the actual request for the content from your site. Bandwidth refers to the actual content. You can use as much bandwidth as you need but there is a set amount of bandwidth allotted to your site. And if you need additional bandwidth you have to pay additional also.
