Read more about what disk space is in the web hosting sector.
The disk space function shows the overall volume of data that you are able to have on your shared website hosting server at one time. With a personal computer, for instance, this would be the size of one hard disk or the overall capacity of all the hard drives in the event that your computer has more than a single one. The same way that the space on a PC is divided between installed programs, docs, music files and the like, the server disk space is divided between site files, databases and emails. Every single file, folder or e-mail uses a little disk space on your server, therefore you should take into consideration multiple factors, not just the size of the files which you upload. For instance, getting sizeable email attachments or running a script-driven site in which the user-generated content material is kept in a database also affects the hdd space you are using.
Disk Space in Shared Website Hosting
In order to suit the processing power behind all our cloud web hosting packages, we have considered and included the best possible solution about the disk space - your account will not be generated using a single server, but using a cluster system. Because of this, what we've made is a whole group of servers which is dedicated to the file storing only, therefore you should never concern yourself with not having enough hard drive space and having to migrate to another server because your present one cannot accommodate more data. Any time an additional space is necessary, all we have to do is attach more machines to our cluster, so that the hard disk space is virtually limitless. Still, our Linux shared website hosting packages
were made to be used for sites, not for a database of big files. We also have distinct machines for your databases and the e-mails.
