The disk space function shows the full volume of information that you can have on the shared website hosting server at one time. With a home PC, for example, this is the overall size of your hard disk drive or the overall capacity of all hard drives in the event that your computer has more than just a single one. Exactly as the space on a PC is shared between installed programs, documents, music and the like, the server hard disk space is divided between site files, databases and email messages. Every single file, folder or email message uses a little storage space on the server, and that means you should think about a lot of factors, not just the size of the files you upload. To give an example, receiving larger e-mail attachments or running a script-driven website in which the user-generated content material is kept in a database also affects the space you use.

Disk Space in Shared Website Hosting

To suit the processing potential behind our cloud web hosting plans, we have taken into consideration and employed the very best system about the disk space - your account will not be created on a single server, but using a cluster platform. Therefore, what we have made is a whole cluster of servers that is dedicated to the file storage only, hence you should never concern yourself with not having enough hard drive space and having to move to an alternative server since your existing one simply cannot accommodate more data. In case extra space is needed, all we need to do is attach extra machines to our cluster, so that the hard disk space is virtually unlimited. Still, all our Linux shared website hosting packages were made to be used for websites, not for a repository of large files. We also have individual machines for the databases as well as the e-mails.
