So, around August 5th, I get the following:

Due to several clients abusing our overselling option, we have decided to disable it. Your current plan (Layer 10), which has 5GB Space/50GB Bandwidth will be increased to 10GB Space/100GB Bandwidth.

Therefore, we request that you limit your clients allocated space/bandwidth so that it does not surpass the 10GB Space/100GB Bandwidth that you have been allocated. Once you have completed this task, please contact us. We will then disable the overselling option for your account. We hope that you will cooperate with us during this process.

As expected, we were one of the clients exceeding our allotment and ‘abusing’ their service, in fact using twice what we were allowed. Most of it, however, developed from the rapid growth of one website within our service.

Steven, on their support channel, was very helpful to resolve this issue, and we finally cracked a deal whereby we now have access to double the storage and bandwidth, and overselling, with an upgrade to get yet another doubling of the storage and bandwidth.

So our capacity has quadrupled for a small cost of $10.00, and we have kept our relations with this excellent Canadian hosting company HighLayer through an exclusive deal. Just another way to make the most of what we have.

Stuck With Unlimited On DeiseHost June 5, 2008

I’d like to apologize on behalf of DeiseHost’s strict ‘no overselling’ policy. As you will see here, hosting with Overselling Enabled was not only initially requested, but at the top of our list. Dan from DeiseHost has replied offering their services.

Unfortunately I received a recent email. (Delayed I may add.)

I am sorry but we do not allow Overselling.

Regards,
Dan

Now we’re stuck with unlimited hosting (the default) for all our clients and there’s no way to change that since no matter what move we take, we’ve still exceeded our allotment by infinity. Here’s a follow-up:

May i firstly like to quote what dan actually said to you in this post.

“Hello,

DeiseHost.Com can offer you the following:

5 GB Disc Space
50 GB Data Transfer
cPanel/WHM 11
Fantastico De Luxe
Unlimited Features
Host Unlimited Accounts
24/7 Dedicated and Friendly Support

Monthly Price: $8.99”

no where in that did Dan offer you overselling. Therefore you chose to select this offer on the basis of what Dan offered you here.

Kind Regards,
Neil Hickman.

Speaking of which, no other company does mention that they offer overselling or even PHP URL access. Isn’t it odd how all the others just had these features or else checked my requirements before replying. But, I guess, you are right. No where did you actually say you offered overselling.

The Node 4 No Overselling curse lives on. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
