In the hosting world, overselling means advertising benefits that a client will pay for, but can’t really take advantage of. A lot of the options of a given website hosting plan can fall under this category - disk space, traffic, database storage space, and so on. A solution may come with unlimited disk space, for instance, yet the majority of hosting providers set up accounts on just a single server that can have a limited number of disk drives and considering the fact that all customers upload content, there won't be any space left on the server sooner or later or there'll be some hidden quotas to guarantee that every customer has their share, though everyone has paid for limitless space. As most hosting Control Panels are meant to work on a single server, a lot of service providers don't have any choice but to oversell, that's nothing else but deceiving their customers.
