The term "disk space" is sometimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words mean the very same thing - the volume of info that you'll be able to upload to a shared hosting account. The full size of everything you have is calculated by accumulating the space taken by the overall content within your account, the most obvious being the data files that you upload. Two other things can often be ignored by a lot of people, though - e-mails as well as databases. Sizable attachments and databases of huge script-driven websites will often need a lot of disk space as well. In order to employ a more familiar analogy, the hdd space of your personal computer is consumed not only by files that you download, but also by docs you write and programs you add. Likewise, numerous things are counted towards the hdd space your info takes on a website hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
To match the processing power behind our cloud web hosting plans, we have studied and implemented the perfect solution for the disk space - your account is not generated using just one server, but on a cluster platform. As a result, what we have created is a whole cluster of servers which is focused on the file storing only, so that you should never be worried about not having enough hard drive space and having to migrate to another server since your existing one can't accommodate more info. In case more space is needed, all we have to do is attach more machines to our cluster, so that the hard disk space is limitless. Needless to say, our shared hosting are designed to be used for web sites, not for a repository of large files. We have different machines for all the databases as well as the e-mail messages.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
All of our Linux dedicated service have several hard disks so as to match the computing power that you'll get, which means that you will never need to be concerned about not having enough hard disk space. The drives can function in RAID, i.e. one drive can function as a mirror of another drive to ensure that your information will be protected, alternatively you can use it as a stand alone for even greater complete storage space. Hundreds of gigabytes of disk space will be at your disposal all the time, so that you will be able to run huge websites, upload enormous files and back up your individual archive. Considering the fact that a dedicated server is the most powerful form of website hosting, you'll be able to upload/download files with very fast speeds. If needed, we also give you the option to add more hard disks and utilize even more storage space for your content. We offer three hosting Control Panels with the dedicated servers - when you use Hepsia, all domains will share the entire server space and will be managed in a single place, whereas with DirectAdmin and cPanel you will have the possibility to set up separate web hosting accounts with pre-defined disk space quotas for every domain name hosted on the server.
