The disk space function shows the overall amount of info that you could have on the website hosting server at one time. With a desktop computer, for instance, this would be the overall size of a single hdd or the overall volume of all the hard disks in the event that your PC has more than a single one. The same way that your space on a PC is shared between installed computer programs, docs, music and so on, the server hdd space is typically divided between site files, databases and emails. Each file, folder or email will take a little storage space on the server, therefore you should take into account a variety of factors, not just the size of the files which you upload. For example, having larger e-mail attachments or using a script-driven internet site in which the user-generated content is located in a database will also affect the space you use.

Disk Space in Website Hosting

To suit the processing effectiveness behind our cloud website hosting plans, we've taken into consideration and included the most effective option regarding the disk space - your hosting account is not made using one server, but using a cluster system. Consequently, what we've built is a large cluster of servers that is centered on the file storing only, hence you should never be worried about running out of hard disk space and having to switch to a different server as your existing one can't accommodate more content. If an additional space is required, all we have to do is add extra machines to the cluster, so the storage space is virtually inexhaustible. Still, all our Linux website hosting packages are meant to be used for websites, not for a collection of big files. We have different machines for your databases as well as the email messages.
