Find what "disk space" refers to in the world of website hosting and what is the proper disk space quota to meet your requirements.
The disk space feature displays the full amount of data that you are able to have on the cloud hosting server at one time. With a desktop computer, for example, this would be the overall size of one hard disk or the overall capacity of all the hard disks in case that the computer has more than a single one. The same way that your space on a personal computer is divided between installed programs, docs, your music and so on, the server disk space is usually shared between site files, databases and email messages. Every file, folder or email message takes a little space on the server, which means you should take into consideration a variety of factors, not only the size of the files you upload. For instance, having big e-mail attachments or having a script-driven internet site in which the user-generated data is saved in a database will also affect the hdd space you're using.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
packages were developed with the concept that not sufficient storage space cannot be something that will limit the growth of your sites. That's the reason why we've taken a technique which is more advanced than the one that most hosting providers take - instead of just generating all of the accounts using a singlle server and eventually not having enough hard disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform in which the storage is handled by a wide cluster of servers. Because of this, we can easily attach more machines if they are required or more HDDs, so as to supply extra disk space for all the files of our valued clients. Separate clusters handle your e-mails and your databases, thus not only is it possible to expand your sites without having to worry about hard disk space, but also the servers will perform better and faster because each service does have its space for storage and a single server doesn't handle different types of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our semi-dedicated server
plans, the hard disk storage characteristic is not limited, so that you're able to center on building your web sites the way you like and not be worried about hitting some restriction. Unlike countless hosting providers that generate your accounts using one server, we employ a custom-made cloud platform, that allows us to provide truly unlimited hdd storage for each and every account. With just a single machine, there's a restricted number of hard disks which can be used, not mentioning that most of the hosting Control Panels are simply not intended to work with numerous servers concurrently. Our system, in contrast, features clusters of servers for the web site emails, databases and files, plus our custom Hepsia Control Panel was made to work with it. We're able to connect as many servers to all of the clusters as needed at any given time, so the hard disk space is virtually limitless.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers
provide a huge volume of disk space in order to match your requirements and not limit the growth of your web sites. Of course, in order for you to run just a single resource-demanding web site or numerous smaller-sized sites, you'll need additional power as a whole, which means that the better the VPS package, the more hdd space you get. Switching between the different packages is really easy and the further space will be included in your existing account without moving any data or stopping/restarting the server, so in case you reach the storage limit of your existing package, you are able to upgrade with a few clicks from your billing section. Since we offer several hosting Control Panels for our virtual private servers, you will have two options for the disk space control - using Hepsia, all the websites will share the whole server storage space, while using DirectAdmin and cPanel you will be able to make distinct accounts for the domains and set up a quota for every account.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
When you use Linux dedicated web hosting plans
you will get all of the disk space that you may need for your websites, databases, emails and applications. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage space will be at your disposal and not shared with anybody else, which means that you will be able to upload all of the content you need to - site files, personal or company archive backup copies, and many more. You will get a minimum of 2 separate hard disk drives that work well in RAID, so one of the drives will mirror the other in real time to ensure that all of your important content is always secured. If you like, you can use the drives independent of each other and employ the whole storage space in any way you see fit. When necessary, you can get extra drives added to the server and enjoy even greater storage space. You have the option to create web hosting accounts with pre-set hdd storage allowances if you order your server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the web hosting Control Panel. Using Hepsia, which is your third Control Panel solution on the order page, all the domains hosted on the server will share the hard disk space and they will be handled via a single account. Either way, our dedicated packages will meet all your requirements whatever the kind of website you need to host.
