    They don't. They know that 95% of the people that sign up for those packages will never use anywhere near that much space/bandwidth.

    yep..they don't allow file hosting websites on shared servers and tons of other stuff. terms of service on shared servers let the hosting company basically kick anyone off for simply having any visitors.

    nah they just delete the offending file. I used to host shit for OT, but the host would always kill it after it hit 5gb bandwidth

    we remove the offending file but also work to push the offending user off the shared server
