What exactly is disk space? What is its place as part of the Internet hosting world?
Each time you upload a file on a web hosting server, it will take a certain amount of storage space on the hard disk drive dependent on its size. In the event that you operate a script-driven internet site which stores its data in a database, you will need more disk space, the more people make use of it. To give an example, if you have a message board, the more comments people share, the larger the database gets. E-mail messages, in particular ones using attachments, also need some space in the site hosting account. The disk space quota you will get with each shared website hosting supplier is the full amount of data you can have at any moment, and this includes website files, e-mail messages and databases. Likewise, a personal computer has a hard drive and the computer software installed on it plus all docs and music files that you make or download require some storage space, which can't exceed the full capacity of your hard disk drive.
Disk Space in Shared Website Hosting
In order to suit the processing potential behind our cloud website hosting packages, we've taken into consideration and employed the very best alternative related to disk space - your account will not be created on a single server, but on a cluster system. Due to this fact, what we've designed is a large group of servers which is dedicated to the file storage only, consequently you should never worry about not having enough HDD space and having to move to a new server since your existing one simply cannot accommodate more data. Whenever an additional space is necessary, all we have to do is add extra machines to the cluster, so the hard disk space is practically limitless. Still, all of our shared website hosting
are intended to be employed for sites, not for a repository of large files. We also have separate machines for the databases and the email messages.
