Find what "disk space" implies in the world of website hosting and what is the proper disk space quota to meet your needs.
Every time you upload a file on a web hosting server, it will need some storage space on the hard drive depending on its particular overall size. In case you run a script-driven site which stores its data in a database, it will require more space, the more people make use of it. For instance, if you have a community forum, the more comments people write, the greater the database will get. Messages, particularly ones using attachments, also take some disk space in the website hosting account. The HDD space quota that you get with your web hosting supplier is the overall amount of data you could have at any given moment, which includes site files, e-mail messages as well as databases. Likewise, a home computer has a hard drive and the programs installed on it together with all of the docs and / or music files that you make or download require some disk space, which cannot surpass the full capacity of your hard disk.
Disk Space in Web Hosting
All our web hosting
packages were designed with the idea that not sufficient storage space shouldn't be something that should limit the growth of your websites. That's why we've applied a technique which is different from the one that most web hosting providers take - rather than creating countless accounts on a single server and eventually running out of storage space, we use a cloud hosting platform in which the storage is taken care of by a whole collection of servers. Thus, we are able to add more machines in case they're necessary or more HDDs, in order to offer additional disk space for all of the files of our users. Separate clusters handle the emails and the databases, consequently not only will you be able to expand your sites without having to worry about space, but also all the servers will operate faster and better considering the fact that every service features its own space for storage and a single server does not handle different kinds of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server
plans have "disk space" as a characteristic just to accentuate that it is truly unlimited. We were able to make that happen by employing an innovative, custom cloud hosting system, where your files, emails and databases are stored on separate clusters of servers. We are able to add more hard drives or whole servers to all of the clusters and whenever needed, and furthermore our hosting Control Panel is made to work with this type of system. In comparison, the vast majority of Control Panels on the website hosting market can work only on a single server, and irrespective of what many providers promote, they actually create a variety of accounts on a single machine. Using a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will never need to worry about hdd space restrictions and you will be able to focus on developing your sites.
Disk Space in Dedicated Web Hosting
The minimum amount of HDD storage that you can get when you use our dedicated servers is 500 GB. You'll have 2 separate hard disks, 250 GB each, and it is up to you how you'll allocate this storage. You can have the disks in RAID, therefore all of your data will always be safe as one of the drives will be a real-time mirror of the other, alternatively you'll be able to have them function independently, so as to use the full storage capacity that'll be accessible. The disk space of all our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
is sufficient for everything - large electronic stores, data depository portal, individual archive backup, and a lot more. We will never restrain your websites in terms of the hard disk storage they use. Once that they start increasing, we offer you the opportunity to add further drives to your existing server when needed. When you obtain the server with DirectAdmin or cPanel for the hosting Control Panel, you will also be able to create a separate account for each and every hosted domain name and set a certain disk space quota for it. Using Hepsia all the domain names will be hosted in one place and they will share the full server storage space.
