How does the change of unlimited traffic to unmetered affect clients?

In short - it doesn’t. It’s just a wording change that we believe describes better what the traffic feature actually means. Unlimited as a word can be confusing and implies there’s no limit for the traffic your website can handle. While we do not impose any limits on the number of visitors your website can receive, there are practical limits associated with the CPU and RAM available to your server. This is why we believe that “unmetered” is a better term to describe just that and that’s why we’re making this wording change. To make sure your marketing and promotion copy for SiteGround is correct, we kindly ask all our affiliate partners to update the unlimited traffic feature on their websites to unmetered. …
