Find out more about what disk space really is in the web hosting sector.
The term "disk space" is sometimes called "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these terms refer to exactly the same thing - the volume of data that you are able to upload to a shared hosting account. The overall size of what you have is estimated by accumulating the space used by the entire content in the account, the most obvious being the files that you upload. Two more things are usually disregarded by a lot of end users, though - emails and also databases. Large attachments or databases of big script-driven internet sites can often require a lot of storage space as well. In order to employ a more recognizable analogy, the hdd space of your home computer is consumed not just by files that you download, but also by documents you write along with software programs you add. Likewise, various things are counted towards the disk space your info employs on a website hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
In order to match the processing performance behind our cloud web hosting plans, we've studied and applied the perfect option about the disk space - your hosting account is not made using one server, but on a cluster platform. Due to this fact, what we've created is an entire collection of servers which is dedicated to the file storing only, therefore you should never concern yourself with running out of HDD space and having to switch to some additional server since your existing one cannot accommodate more content. In case an additional space is required, we just add extra machines to our cluster, so that the disk space is limitless. Still, all of our Linux shared hosting packages
are meant to be employed for web sites, not for a repository of large files. We have separate machines for all of the databases and the e-mail messages.

plans, the hdd capacity attribute is unrestricted, so that you can concentrate on developing your web sites the way you like and not be concerned about reaching a restriction.

With just a single machine, there're only so many HDDs that you can use, not mentioning that the most widespread hosting Control Panels are simply not made to function with a large number of servers simultaneously. Our platform, however, features clusters of servers for the site files, emails and databases, plus our custom Hepsia Control Panel was designed to work with it. We can add as many servers to each of the clusters as required at any time, so that the hdd space is virtually inexhaustible.
