Discover what "disk space" implies in the world of website hosting and what is the right disk space quota for your requirements.
The disk space function displays the full capacity of information that you could have on a web hosting server at any time. With a home PC, for example, this is the overall size of a single hdd or the full capacity of all of the hard drives in case that the PC has more than one. Exactly as the space on a PC is divided between installed software, documents, music etc, the server hard disk space is typically divided between site files, databases and email messages. Every single file, folder or e-mail takes a little space on the server, therefore you should consider numerous factors, not only the size of the files that you upload. For instance, getting larger e-mail attachments or running a script-driven site in which the user-generated information is stored in a database also affects the hdd space you are using.
Disk Space in Web Hosting
To match the processing potential behind all our cloud website hosting plans, we have thought over and integrated the perfect option regarding the disk space - your hosting account is not made using one server, but on a cluster system. Consequently, what we've built is a large group of servers which is centered on the file storing only, so that you should never worry about not having enough hard drive space and having to migrate to another server because your present one can't accommodate more info. Any time extra space is needed, we just attach more machines to our cluster, so that the hard drive space is virtually unlimited. Still, all of our web hosting are designed to be used for web sites, not for a repository of large files. We also have distinct machines for the databases and the emails.
