    Angry Can I use BH as backup / storage for non-web related files?

    Be careful with your backups. I had several backups stored on my domain. Several weeks ago I found my sites all offline. I called and was told that I had violated the TOS. Although I had been told that I was purchasing unlimited space. False advertising by Bluehost. I have now switched to Dreamhost after being with Bluehost since 2003. The least they could have done was notify ahead of time to let me know what the problem is. :mad::mad::mad:

    You were purchasing unlimited space to store files directly associated with your website. That is stated very clearly - there's no false advertising involved. You can't store backups.

    Of course, storing backups on the server doesn't make a whole lot of sense, anyway. If the server fails, you lose both your primary files and the backups. Great plan.
