Learn more about what disk space is in the web hosting field.
The term "disk space" may also be called "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these terms refer to exactly the same thing - the amount of info that you are able to upload to a cloud website hosting account. The total size of what you have is calculated by accumulating the space used by all of the content within your account, the most obvious being the types of files that you upload. Two more things are often forgotten by the majority of end users, though - e-mail messages as well as databases. Larger attachments and databases of larger script-driven sites can often require a lot of storage space as well. To use a more recognizable analogy, the hard disk space of your home computer is consumed not just by files that you download, but also by documents you make and programs you add. Similarly, a number of things are counted towards the hard disk space that your data uses on a web site hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Cloud Website Hosting
In order to suit the processing performance behind all our cloud web hosting plans, we've taken into consideration and included the perfect system for the disk space - your hosting account will not be created on a single server, but on a cluster platform. For that reason, what we have built is a whole cluster of servers that is focused on the file storing only, so you should never worry about running out of HDD space and having to move to a different server as your current one cannot accommodate more content. When an additional space is needed, we add extra machines to our cluster, so that the disk space is unlimited. Of course, our Linux cloud website hosting packages
are meant to be employed for web sites, not for a repository of big files. We have different machines for the databases and the email messages.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server
packages have "disk space" as a feature just to highlight that it's absolutely unrestricted. We are able to achieve that by employing a groundbreaking, in-house built cloud hosting system, where your databases, emails and files will be located on separate clusters of servers. We are able to add additional HDDs or entire servers to all of the clusters and whenever necessary, and what's more our hosting Control Panel was made to function with such a platform. By contrast, the vast majority of Control Panels on the web hosting market can function only on one server, and in spite of what lots of providers promote, they really set up a variety of accounts on just a single machine. Using a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll never have to concern yourself with hdd space restrictions and you can concentrate on expanding your websites.
Disk Space in Dedicated Hosting
The minimal HDD storage that you can get using our dedicated servers is 500 GB. You will have two separate HDDs, 250 GB each, and it will be up to you the best way you'll share out this storage. You can have the disks in RAID, so that all your content will be secured as one drive will be a real-time mirror of the second one, or you'll be able to have them work individually, so as to use the overall storage potential that is at your disposal. The hard disk space of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
is enough for everything - huge Internet shops, data depository portal, individual archive clone, and many other things. We will never restrain your websites with regard to the HDD storage they need. In case that they start expanding, we offer you the chance to add further hard drives to your existing server as required. When you obtain the server with DirectAdmin or cPanel for the hosting Control Panel, you'll also be able to set up a different account for each and every hosted domain name and set a specific hard disk storage space allowance for it. When you use Hepsia all your domains will be hosted in a single and they'll share the full server space.
