The disk space function shows the full volume of information that you'll be able to have on your shared web hosting server at one time. With a personal computer, for example, this would be the size of one hard disk drive or the total capacity of all hard disk drives in case that your computer has more than just a single one. Exactly as the space on a personal computer is shared between installed software, docs, music and the like, the server storage space is usually divided between website files, databases and e-mail messages. Every single file, folder and email message requires a little space on the server, so you should take into consideration various factors, not just the size of the files that you will upload. For instance, receiving sizable e-mail attachments or having a script-driven internet site in which the user-generated content is saved in a database will also affect the hdd space you're using.
Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting
In order to suit the processing performance behind our cloud website hosting plans, we have considered and integrated the very best option about the disk space - your account is not created using one server, but using a cluster platform. Because of this, what we have built is a whole group of servers that is centered on the file storage only, therefore you should never be worried about running out of HDD space and having to switch to an alternative server because your existing one simply cannot accommodate more content. Whenever extra space is needed, we just attach more machines to the cluster, so the storage space is virtually limitless. Needless to say, all our Linux shared web hosting are designed to be used for web sites, not for a collection of big files. We also have separate machines for your databases as well as the emails.
