Learn more about what disk space really is inside of the hosting industry.
The term "disk space" is oftentimes called "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these terms refer to the very same thing - the volume of data that you can upload to a shared web hosting account. The overall size of the things you have is estimated by accumulating the space used by the overall content within the account, the most obvious being the files that you upload. Two more things are sometimes overlooked by the majority of users, though - e-mails as well as databases. Large attachments or databases of large script-driven sites can often take a lot of disk space too. In order to employ a more recognizable analogy, the hard drive space of your computer is taken not only by files you download, but also by documents you write together with programs you install. Likewise, various things are counted towards the hard disk space your data takes on a website hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting
packages were made with the notion that deficiency of hard disk space cannot be a thing that can reduce the progress of your web sites. For this reason we've taken a technique which is more advanced than the one that most web hosting companies use - rather than generating a variety of accounts on a single server and subsequently running out of disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform where the storage is handled by a large cluster of servers. In this way, we can easily install more machines in case they are needed and / or more hard disks, so as to offer you more disk space for all of the files of our clients. Separate clusters manage the email messages as well as your databases, as a result not only will you be able to enhance your websites not worrying about space, but also all the servers will perform faster and better since each service features its own space and a single server doesn't handle various kinds of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With all of our semi-dedicated server
packages, the hdd capacity attribute is unlimited, so that you'll be able to focus on creating your web sites the way they should be and not worry about reaching some limit. Unlike lots of hosting suppliers that set up accounts on a single server, we employ a custom-built cloud platform, that allows us to supply truly limitless hard disk storage for each and every account. With a single machine, there's a limited number of HDDs which can be used, not mentioning that the most widespread hosting Control Panels weren't meant to function with a large number of servers at the same time. Our platform, by contrast, features clusters of servers for the site files, emails and databases, and our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel was created to work with it. We'll connect as many servers to all of the clusters as required at any given time, so that the hard disk space is practically unlimited.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
With our VPS servers
, you can expect a lot of disk space for all your content that matches the rest of the server characteristics, which means that a more expensive plan comes with a higher allowance. You are able to use the storage as you see fit, as there're no specific allocations for your website files, emails or databases - all of them share the total hdd space on the server. Of course, when you would like to have some limits, you are able to acquire your VPS plan with cPanel or DirectAdmin as the hosting Control Panel, and you can set up website hosting accounts with a limited amount of hdd storage for each individual domain name that you host on the server. In case you require more storage space at some time, you will be able to easily boost your plan with a few mouse-clicks and the additional characteristics will be included with your current account, so that you will not need to relocate anything and your websites will continue to be up and running.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
When you use dedicated web hosting plans
you will get all the storage space that you will need for your web sites, databases, e-mails and applications. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage space will be accessible and not shared with others, hence you'll be able to upload any information you need - website files, personal or company archive backup copies, etc. You will have no less than 2 separate hard disks that work well in RAID, so that one drive will mirror the other one in real time to make sure that your essential information is always secured. If you prefer, you're able to use the disks independent of each other and make use of the full space in any way you see fit. When needed, you can get supplementary drives attached to the server and enjoy even more disk space. You'll have the option to make hosting accounts with fixed hard disk space allocations if you order your server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel. With Hepsia, which is the 3rd Control Panel solution on the order page, all domains hosted on your server will share the HDD space and they'll be managed via one account. Either way, our dedicated packages will meet your demands no matter what type of website you would like to host.
