Learn what "disk space" refers to in the realm of web hosting and what is the disk space quota to suit your needs.
The disk space feature displays the full capacity of information that you can have on the shared web hosting server at a time. With a personal computer, for example, this is the capacity of one hdd or the full capacity of all the hard disk drives in case that the PC has more than just a single one. The same way that the space on a PC is shared between installed programs, docs, your music and the like, the server disk space is normally shared between internet site files, databases and emails. Every file, folder and email takes some disk space on your server, and that means you should consider numerous factors, not only the size of the files that you upload. For example, receiving large e-mail attachments or running a script-driven site in which the user-generated info is kept in a database may also affect the space you are using.
Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting
To suit the processing power behind our cloud website hosting packages, we have taken into consideration and employed the most effective solution regarding the disk space - your account will not be created on a single server, but using a cluster system. As a result, what we have assembled is a whole cluster of servers that is centered on the file storing only, hence you should never worry about not having enough hard drive space and having to switch to an additional server because your existing one can't accommodate more data. In the event that more space is required, we simply add more machines to our cluster, so that the disk space is virtually unlimited. Of course, all our shared web hosting plans
are designed to be used for websites, not for a database of large files. We also have separate machines for all of the databases and the emails.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server
package from us, you'll not have to concern yourself with the disk space that you may use because of the basic reason that the attribute is unrestricted. In contrast to a number of other hosting suppliers that advertise the same service, yet generate accounts on just a single machine where only so much hdds can be connected, we use an avant-garde cloud platform that uses clusters of servers. All of your files will be stored on a single cluster, the email messages on another, the databases on a third one etc. This system features 2 noteworthy advantages - first, the disk storage can never finish since we'll attach additional servers to every cluster that needs them, and second, the servers will function much more effectively since they'll handle only one kind of system processes. A semi-dedicated server plan provides you the freedom to improve your web sites as much as you'd like.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers
feature disk space quotas proportionate to the processing power that you will get with every package. By using a higher plan, for example, it is more likely you'll host numerous domain names or just a single huge site, therefore the hard disk storage will increase as you upgrade the plan. If you pick our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all the domains will share the storage, while if you select DirectAdmin or cPanel, you'll be able to generate independent hosting accounts and allocate a limited volume of the entire VPS storage space for every specific domain. You can even share out disk space from one domain to another if necessary. If you acquire a particular VPS plan and then you want additional storage at some point, you're able to upgrade to a greater plan with just a few clicks from your billing area. The extra system resources will be added to your current plan without any server downtime or content migration.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Our dedicated web hosting plans
have a number of HDDs so as to match the computing power you'll get, so you won't ever have to worry for not having enough hdd space. The drives can function in RAID, this means that one drive can function as a copy of another in order to make sure that all your data will always be backed up, alternatively you can use it separately for even larger overall storage capability. Many hundreds of gigabytes of disk storage will be available at all times, so you'll be able to run huge sites, upload large files or even copy your archive. Due to the fact that a dedicated server is the most powerful type of web hosting, you can upload/download files with very quick speeds. When required, we also provide the option to include more HDDs and utilize even more storage space for your data. We provide three hosting Control Panels with the dedicated servers - with Hepsia, all your domain names will share the full server space and they will be operated in one place, while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you will have the possibility to create separate website hosting accounts with pre-selected disk space allocations for each and every domain name hosted on your server.
