The disk space function shows the total capacity of info that you could have on a website hosting server at any time. With a home PC, for instance, this is the capacity of one hard disk drive or the total size of all the hard disks in case that your computer has more than a single one. Exactly as the space on a home machine is shared between installed computer software, documents, music files etcetera, the server hdd space is typically shared between internet site files, databases and emails. Each file, folder and e-mail requires some storage space on your server, so you should take into consideration a lot of factors, not only the size of the files that you upload. For example, getting larger e-mail attachments or running a script-driven website where the user-generated info is stored in a database will also affect the hdd space you're using.
Disk Space in Website Hosting
By using our website hosting packages, you'll never worry about hard disk space. While most providers set up accounts using a single server and sooner or later all the server hard disk storage will be used, we have employed a cloud web hosting platform where the files, e-mail messages and databases are handled by separate groups of servers. As a result, each machine works better because only one type of processes is working on it, and the disk space is virtually unrestricted since we can always add additional servers or hard disk drives to the cluster, depending on whether we require more processing power or extra space. You will never come across a situation when you cannot upload more files for the reason that there is no available hard disk space on the server, that is an issue you can encounter with other suppliers. If you use our web hosting services, you can be sure that insufficient space won't ever be an issue for the progress of your websites.
Disk Space in Dedicated Web Hosting
With the hdd space that we supply with all of our Linux dedicated web hosting, we guarantee that you will be able to run every site whatever its volume. You'll receive a minimum of 500 GB storage space, which you can take advantage of as you see fit - even for private file storage. By default, you'll be given 2 separate hard drives, which can be employed independent of each other, so as to use their total storage space, or they can be used in RAID and one will be a copy the second one in real time to make sure that you will not lose precious data in the event of a hardware breakdown. You're also given the option to add more HDDs and upgrade the entire disk space for your use even more. This makes it possible for you to create a file or image storage portal without a problem if you'd like. Using the DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels that we offer, you can create an individual account for each domain name that you host on the server and define a quota for the space it'll be allowed to use. When you choose the third option, our in-house Hepsia Control Panel, all your domains will be managed in one place and they'll share the full server hard disk storage.
