The disk space feature shows the total volume of information that you are able to have on a shared web hosting server at any time. With a desktop computer, for example, this is the total size of one hdd or the overall volume of all the hard disks in the event that your computer has more than just a single one. The same way that your space on a PC is shared between installed applications, documents, your music and the like, the server hard disk space is typically shared between site files, databases and email messages. Every file, folder or e-mail requires a little storage space on the server, therefore you should take into consideration a lot of factors, not only the size of the files which you upload. For instance, getting big email attachments or running a script-driven internet site where the user-generated info is located in a database also affects the space you are using.
Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting
We have developed our shared web hosting with the idea that the hard disk storage should never be an issue for your sites. While many web hosting companies produce accounts using one server, and as a matter of fact, the most popular Control Panels are made to work solely on this type of platform, we have taken a different approach. We have clusters of servers that control every single element of the web hosting service, so your files will be stored on one cluster, the emails on a different one,your databases using a third one, and so on. Using this cloud platform we achieve two things - the storage space is actually infinite due to the fact that we can attach as many servers and hard drives to the clusters as required, and we improve the overall performance of every single machine since just one kind of system processes will operate on it. This custom setup will help you develop your websites as you see fit without worrying about running out of hdd space.
