Pleeeease consider something like my “All you need!” suggestion, if you must remove the limits.
I always liked that you guys didn’t push the SLA gimmick even though everyone else does, so it would be a shame if you went with this one.
I just have a hard time believing that eventually, a judge isn’t going to call a CPU limit “a limit” on unlimited bandwidth or disk space, since it is, if it’s mentioned in the TOS.
In that case, where “unlimited” would technically be false advertising because of the TOS, something corny like “99999999 gazillion TB” wouldn’t… it just wouldn’t be possible.
I think if you used different wording to say that the hard LIMITS on the account aren’t disk space or bandwidth (which is how it already is), it would give “the market” what they want, while being honest about it and not offending those that are smart enough to know if something is unlimited or not.
It could even be used to point out that unlimited is a poor choice of words for any host to use, since every single one has limits. That way, you’d be educating the clueless masses while selling them what others would have labeled as unlimited.
A different approach could even be worthy of a Josh-blog-post explaining it and pointing out that unlimited just doesn’t exist. Kinda like how he put SLAs in their place.
I just think the fact that everyone else is doing it is a good reason for Dreamhost to not do it and stand out for being unique. Especially since you can probably use more disk space and bandwidth at Dreamhost than you can at the hosts that are claiming unlimited.
