The term "disk space" is sometimes called "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these terms mean the same thing - the volume of data that you can upload to a shared hosting account. The full size of everything you have is determined by accumulating the storage space consumed by the overall content in your account, the most obvious being the data files that you upload. Two more things are generally ignored by the majority of users, though - emails and databases. Large attachments and databases of huge script-driven sites will often take a lot of storage space too. To use a more common analogy, the hard drive space of your laptop or computer is taken not just by files you download, but additionally by docs you generate together with software programs you install. Likewise, numerous things are counted towards the disk space that your content needs on a web hosting server, not just the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
We've designed our shared hosting plans with the notion that the hdd storage should not be a problem for your websites. While many website hosting providers make accounts using a single server, and as a matter of fact, the most popular Control Panels are designed to operate solely on this kind of platform, we've used a different approach. We have clusters of servers that manage every single part of the web hosting service, so your files will be stored on a single cluster, your emails on another one,your databases on a third one, etc. With this cloud platform we accomplish a couple of things - the storage space is actually limitless due to the fact that we are able to attach as many servers and hard disk drives to our clusters as needed, and we boost the effectiveness of every machine because only one kind of processes will run on it. This tailor-made setup will enable you to extend your web sites as you see fit without having to worry about running out of hard disk space.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With all our semi-dedicated server plans, the hard disk space attribute is not limited, so you will be able to focus on developing your web sites the way they should be and not worry about getting to some restriction. Unlike the majority of hosting providers that create your accounts on one server, we employ a custom cloud platform, that allows us to offer you truly unrestricted hdd storage for every single account. With a single machine, there are only so many hard disk drives you can use, not mentioning that the most common hosting Control Panels weren't intended to function with several servers simultaneously. Our system, by contrast, uses clusters of servers for the web site emails, databases and files, plus our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel was made to work with it. We can easily install as many servers to any of the clusters as needed at any given time, so that the hdd space is practically limitless.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Because of the hdd storage that we provide with our dedicated web hosting plans, we guarantee that you can operate every website irrespective of its overall size. You'll receive no less than 500 GB storage, which you're able to use the way you see fit - even for private file storage. As standard, you will have 2 hard disks, which can be used on their own, in order to make use of their total storage capacity, or they can be in RAID and one will be a duplicate the second one in real time to warrant that you'll not waste valuable info in the event of a hardware fail. You're also given the option to put more disks and upgrade the entire disk space available even more. This will allow you to make a file or image storage portal without a problem if you would like. Using the DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels that we offer, you are able to make an individual account for every single site that you host on your server and set an allowance for the space it'll be allowed to use. When you pick the third choice, our custom Hepsia Control Panel, all the domain names will be managed in one place and they'll share the entire server HDD space.
