Learn what "disk space" means in the world of hosting and what is the disk space quota for you.
The disk space feature displays the full capacity of info that you could have on your shared hosting server at any given time. With a personal computer, for example, this would be the size of one hdd or the overall volume of all hard disk drives in the event that the computer has more than a single one. The same way that the space on a personal computer is shared between installed software, documents, music and the like, the server hdd space is normally divided between website files, databases and email messages. Each file, folder and email message requires some disk space on your server, therefore you should consider a bunch of factors, not only the size of the files that you upload. For instance, having sizeable email attachments or having a script-driven website in which the user-generated information is saved in a database may also affect the hdd space you use.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
We have created our shared hosting plans
with the notion that the hard disk space should not be a setback for your websites. While many hosting companies generate accounts using a single server, and in fact, the most widespread Control Panels are designed to work solely on this type of platform, we have used a completely different solution. We have clusters of servers that manage every single part of the hosting service, so that your files are stored on a single cluster, the emails on another,the databases on a third one, etc. With this cloud platform we achieve a couple of things - the hdd space is virtually endless since we can install as many servers and hard disk drives to our clusters as needed, and we improve the efficiency of every single machine as just a single kind of processes will operate on it. This custom setup will help you expand your websites as much as you'd like without worrying about not having enough hdd storage.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that all our semi-dedicated server
plans are very powerful, we have made the decision never to restrict the disk space aspect when we have developed them. Our idea is that if you acquire a powerful package, it's very likely that you have plenty of site content, that's why each and every semi-dedicated server plan includes unlimited hdd storage, which will help you concentrate on developing your websites and not be worried whether you'll fit within some allowance. Your website hosting account will be created using a cloud web hosting system in which the databases, files and emails have their individual groups of servers, so not only will the machines operate more effectively because only one type of system processes will work on them, but in addition you won't ever need to worry about the hdd space as we can easily attach as many servers or hard disk drives to every single cluster as needed.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Using our dedicated web hosting plans
you will get all the storage space that you may need for your sites, databases, e-mail messages and apps. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage will be available and not shared with anyone else, hence you'll be able to upload all the info you would like - website files, personal or company archive backup copies, etc. You will get at least two hard disks that work in RAID, so that one drive will mirror the other in real time to ensure that all of your important information is always backed up. If you like, you're able to use the drives independently and make use of the whole space the way you see fit. When needed, you'll be able to get supplementary hard disks added to your server and get even more disk space. You'll have the option to make hosting accounts with pre-defined hard disk space allocations when you order your server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the website hosting Control Panel. Using Hepsia, which is the 3rd Control Panel option on the order page, all the domains hosted on the server will share the hard disk storage space and they'll be operated from a single account. In each case, our dedicated plans will meet all your demands regardless of the type of website you have to host.
