The Yahoo! definition of Unlimited
This is really interesting. This is the reason I feel using the word “unlimited” isn’t correct when it really isn’t that. Apart from this Yahoo even places restrictions on PHP upload sizes, so you cannot use a PHP upload script to upload files larger than 16MB. Now you may consider this normal because that’s the default value in the php.ini file but Yahoo! does not let you use .htaccess and neither does it let you upload your own php.ini to make changes that suit you.
Really bad practices, fooling customers is the main aim here. Many people think since Yahoo is well recognized it’s flaws are not unique and present in all other web hosting services. Thankfully we have other shared hosting providers that have not let Yahoo! monopolize the web hosting market.
