mainly because they have cute illustrations and claim to use 150% renewable energy. Digging into it, they don’t directly get their energy supply from a wind farm, but do a sort of credit system where x amount of electricity they use = x amount of electricity a wind farm in Oklahoma will supply to the electric grid.
That’s not the best sustainable effort but it helps.

Lesson #1 How Much Storage Do You Need?
Lesson #2 How Much Bandwidth Do You Need?
Not entirely clear on this but 20GB is more than the stated bandwidth on my WiFi broadband which has no problems streaming Adventure Time back to back whilst I fall asleep at the keyboard.
Lesson #3 But XYZ Hosting promises Unlimited Storage and Bandwidth?
We’ve already established that even the universe is limited and will expand and fall off space eventually. (*read expansion theory). So there’s no such thing as unlimited. If they claim to be unlimited, they will also likely tell you the 99% Money Back guarantee actually means 99% of the $1 that acts as the guarantor and hence you only get .99cents back. Also, they may attract cyber squatters who will load 100GB of weird stuff onto the same servers that you share just because they can.
