Discover what "disk space" means in the realm of website hosting and what is the proper disk space quota for your needs.
The disk space feature displays the full amount of information that you could have on the website hosting server at any time. With a desktop computer, for example, this would be the capacity of your hard disk or the full size of all the hard disks in case that your computer has more than 1. Exactly as your space on a home machine is shared between installed software programs, docs, your music and the like, the server hdd space is ordinarily shared between site files, databases and email messages. Every file, folder or email uses a little storage space on the server, so you should consider plenty of factors, not just the size of the files you upload. To give an example, having sizable e-mail attachments or having a script-driven site in which the user-generated info is located in a database also affects the hdd space you use.
Disk Space in Website Hosting
All our website hosting
packages were developed with the notion that not sufficient hard disk space shouldn't be a thing that will obstruct the development of your sites. That is why we've applied a technique which is distinct from the one that most website hosting companies apply - instead of just generating a variety of accounts on one server and subsequently running out of disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform in which the storage space is handled by a whole cluster of servers. Thus, we can connect more machines in case they're necessary or more hard drives, so as to provide you with more disk space for all the files of our users. Separate clusters control the email messages and your databases, consequently not only will you be able to expand your sites not worrying about hard drive space, but also all of the servers will perform faster and better as each service has its own space for storing and one server doesn't handle various kinds of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated server
plans are extremely powerful, we've chosen never to limit the disk space feature when we have designed them. Our understanding is that if you use a powerful plan, it's more than likely that you've got a considerable amount of site info, consequently each and every semi-dedicated server package offers you unrestricted hard disk space, which will enable you to concentrate on improving your sites and not be worried whether you'll suit an allowance. Your website hosting account will be created using a cloud website hosting platform where the emails, files and databases use their own clusters of servers, so not only will the machines operate more effectively considering that only a single type of system processes will operate on them, but also you won't ever have to worry for the disk storage as we can attach as many servers or hard disks to each cluster as needed.
