I have seen many hosting providers offer unlimited bandwidth and hosting and many also offer unmetered bandwidth.

I want to know what exactly is the difference between the two and which one is better?

hate to say it but either way its still metered and monitored.

In the TOS it says that if a "server" or website using too much data they have every right to shut the site down.

But to answer your question. Bandwidth is the amount of data going in and out of the server("internet")

So in reality unlimited and unmetered is the same. just worded differently.

Hi Eranet,
You don't need to be confused. The unmetered and unlimited both refers to same thing.

I have some servers at fdcservers datacenters, and be sure that when they say unmetered it is unmetered. some of my servers there run 80-90 TB bandwidth a month, and they never complained.

Hi Eranet,

I am agree with Josh and John Smith.

Do not confuse between Unmetered and unlimited.

Both are same.

Basically there is no such things as unlimited (no limit) bandwidth.

But Unmetered meaning is that your bandwidth will not be measured or monitored that how much you used. But infact it would have a limited such as 50Mbps, 100Mbps uplink port.
