The disk space function shows the total capacity of info that you're able to have on your shared web hosting server at one time. With a home PC, for example, this is the total size of a single hard disk or the full volume of all hard drives in the event that your PC has more than just a single one. The same way that the space on a personal computer is divided between installed programs, docs, music etcetera, the server hdd space is usually shared between internet site files, databases and email messages. Every single file, folder or email message takes some space on the server, and that means you should take into account multiple factors, not just the size of the files which you upload. To give an example, having sizeable email attachments or having a script-driven site in which the user-generated content is kept in a database also affects the space you are using.

Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting

In order to match the processing performance behind all our cloud website hosting packages, we have studied and included the best possible system for the disk space - your hosting account is not created using a single server, but using a cluster platform. Therefore, what we've assembled is an entire collection of servers which is focused on the file storage only, hence you should never concern yourself with not having enough HDD space and having to move to some additional server because your current one cannot accommodate more info. Any time more space is necessary, we attach extra machines to our cluster, so the disk space is practically inexhaustible. Of course, all of our Linux shared web hosting packages are intended to be employed for websites, not for a repository of large files. We have different machines for your databases as well as the email messages.
