Learn what "disk space" signifies in the world of website hosting and what is the right disk space quota to suit your needs.
The disk space function shows the total volume of data that you could have on a cloud website hosting server at one time. With a home PC, for instance, this would be the total size of your hdd or the overall volume of all hard disk drives in case that your PC has more than a single one. The same way that the space on a home machine is shared between installed applications, documents, music files etcetera, the server hard disk space is usually shared between internet site files, databases and e-mail messages. Each file, folder and email message will take a little storage space on the server, so you should think about a number of factors, not just the size of the files which you upload. To give an example, getting sizeable email attachments or running a script-driven website where the user-generated content is located in a database may also affect the space you use.
Disk Space in Cloud Website Hosting
To match the processing power behind all of our cloud website hosting plans, we've considered and included the best possible system for the disk space - your account is not made using a single server, but using a cluster platform. Consequently, what we've made is a whole collection of servers which is focused on the file storage only, so that you should never worry about not having enough space and having to switch to some additional server because your existing one can't accommodate more data. In the event that more space is necessary, we just add extra machines to the cluster, so the disk space is virtually unlimited. Needless to say, all our cloud website hosting plans
were made to be used for web sites, not for a database of large files. We also have distinct machines for the databases and the email messages.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
packages have "disk space" as a feature just to accentuate that it is absolutely unlimited. We are able to reach that by means of an innovative, custom-made cloud hosting platform, where your files, emails and databases are kept on individual clusters of servers. We can add more hard disk drives or whole servers to all of the clusters and at any time, and what's more our web hosting Control Panel was made to support such a system. By contrast, nearly all Control Panels on the website hosting market can work only on one server, and regardless of what the majority of providers advertise, they actually generate a number of accounts on a single machine. Using a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you'll never need to concern yourself with hard disk storage limits and you can focus on developing your sites.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Selecting dedicated web hosting plans
you will get all the disk space that you may need for your websites, databases, email messages and apps. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage space will be accessible and not shared with others, so you'll be able to upload any data you need to - website files, personal or company archive backups, and many more. You will get a minimum of 2 separate hard disk drives that work well in RAID, so one drive will mirror the other in real time in order to guarantee that all your essential info is always backed up. If you prefer, you're able to use the hard drives independently and utilize the full space the way you see fit. If required, you may also get additional drives attached to the server to have even additional disk space. You will have the option to make web hosting accounts with fixed disk space allowances when you order your server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the website hosting Control Panel. Selecting Hepsia, which is your third Control Panel option on the order page, all the domains hosted on your server will share the disk storage space and they'll be controlled via one account. In each case, our dedicated packages will satisfy all your needs regardless of the type of web site you intend to host.
