You may read the above title and think, uh, well of course unlimited web hosting is a good thing! I agree, but I recently read someone else’s blog post that said unlimited hosting is a bad thing.

But for those entrepreneurs and marketers that do need to create a bunch of websites that need hosting, here are three excellent unlimited hosting plans that I have personally used and like:
