The disk space function shows the full volume of information that you're able to have on a website hosting server at one time. With a desktop computer, for example, this is the total size of one hard disk or the total size of all the hard drives in case that the PC has more than one. The same way that the space on a home machine is shared between installed software programs, docs, music files and the like, the server disk space is typically divided between internet site files, databases and e-mail messages. Each file, folder and email takes a little storage space on your server, which means you should consider plenty of factors, not only the size of the files that you will upload. To give an example, receiving big email attachments or running a script-driven internet site in which the user-generated info is located in a database may also affect the hdd space you use.
Disk Space in Website Hosting
To suit the processing potential behind our cloud website hosting plans, we have considered and implemented the most effective system for the disk space - your hosting account will not be made using one server, but on a cluster platform. For that reason, what we've built is a large collection of servers that is focused on the file storage only, consequently you should never be worried about not having enough hard disk space and having to migrate to another server because your present one can't accommodate more data. Any time extra space is required, all we have to do is add extra machines to the cluster, so the hard drive space is unlimited. Still, all of our Linux website hosting packages
are intended to be employed for websites, not for a database of big files. We have separate machines for your databases as well as the email messages.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server
package from us, you don't have to concern yourself with the disk space that you're able to use due to the simple reason that the feature is limitless. In contrast to various other hosting suppliers who advertise an identical service, but make accounts on just a single machine where a limited number of hard drives can be fitted, we use a revolutionary cloud platform which uses groups of servers. Your files will be kept on one cluster, the emails on a separate one, your databases on a third one etcetera. This system gives you two major advantages - first, the disk space will never finish since we'll add extra servers to any cluster that requires them, and second, the servers will operate much more efficiently for they'll take care of just a single type of processes. A semi-dedicated server plan gives you the option to expand your web sites as much as you'd like.
Disk Space in Dedicated Web Hosting
All our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
feature multiple HDDs to suit the processing power you'll get, which means that you won't ever need to worry for not having enough hard disk storage. The hard disks can be used in RAID, which means a drive can be a copy of another drive in order to make sure that your information will be backed up, alternatively it can be used on its own for even bigger total storage capability. Hundreds of gigabytes of hard disk storage space will be at your disposal all of the time, so that you will be able to run huge sites, upload enormous files and even copy your personal archive. Considering the fact that a dedicated server is the most powerful form of web hosting, you can upload/download files with very fast speeds. When required, we also provide the option to add more hard disks and employ even additional space for your content. We provide 3 hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - with Hepsia, all your domain names will share the overall server space and they will be operated from a single place, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin you will have the possibility to set up distinct web hosting accounts with pre-defined disk space allocations for every domain name hosted on the server.
