Find out what "disk space" signifies in the realm of web hosting and what is the proper disk space quota to suit your needs.
The disk space feature shows the full capacity of data that you can have on the web hosting server at any time. With a desktop computer, for instance, this would be the size of your hard drive or the total size of all hard disk drives in case that the computer has more than a single one. Exactly as the space on a home machine is divided between installed computer software, docs, music etcetera, the server storage space is shared between website files, databases and emails. Every single file, folder or e-mail takes a little disk space on the server, and that means you should take into account a lot of factors, not only the size of the files which you upload. For instance, getting sizeable email attachments or running a script-driven site where the user-generated content is located in a database also affects the space you're using.
Disk Space in Web Hosting
To suit the processing performance behind all our cloud website hosting packages, we've studied and implemented the most effective option related to disk space - your hosting account will not be created on a single server, but using a cluster platform. As a result, what we have assembled is a large group of servers which is dedicated to the file storing only, therefore you should never be worried about not having enough hard drive space and having to switch to another server as your current one simply cannot accommodate more data. Any time an additional space is necessary, all we have to do is attach more machines to the cluster, so the hard disk space is virtually unlimited. Of course, all of our web hosting are meant to be employed for websites, not for a repository of large files. We also have distinct machines for your databases and the emails.
