Unlimited - Please note resources are still technically limited by CPU/RAM/Disk Space available on the server.

[1] - For Security reasons, certain PHP modules (exec, proc_open, system, etc) are disabled and cannot be enabled on our Personal, Business, Premium and Reseller services.

[2] - Charges may apply for upgrades other than between Personal/Business plans, as the hosting environment changes.

[3] - Further restrictions may apply on a case by case basis. Marketing emails should be sent from a dedicated service like mailchimp.com or campaignmonitor.com

[4] - Server Management is optional on VPS and Dedicated servers, but is included in all shared hosting.
