They mean that there are clear limits, but they're very high. In the company's terms of service, they outline exactly what this means (eg, can't be use for image galleries larger than 10 GB). See terms of service for more details. If a customer does exceed the limitations outlined in their ToS, they will be asked to move to a higher traffic account.
