The disk space feature shows the total volume of information that you'll be able to have on the shared website hosting server at a time. With a desktop computer, for instance, this would be the capacity of one hard disk or the full size of all of the hard disk drives in case that the PC has more than 1. Exactly as the space on a home machine is shared between installed programs, docs, music etc, the server storage space is divided between website files, databases and email messages. Every single file, folder or email requires some space on your server, which means you should think about a variety of factors, not just the size of the files you upload. To give an example, receiving sizable email attachments or having a script-driven website where the user-generated data is stored in a database will also affect the hdd space you are using.

Disk Space in Shared Website Hosting

We've developed our shared website hosting with the notion that the disk space won't be a setback for your web sites. While many hosting suppliers make accounts on a single server, and in fact, the most common Control Panels were made to operate solely on such a platform, we have used an alternative strategy. We have clusters of servers that manage every single element of the website hosting service, to ensure that your files are stored on one cluster, your email on another one,your databases using a third one, and so on. Through this cloud platform we achieve two things - the disk space is actually inexhaustible considering that we're able attach as many servers and hard drives to our clusters as needed, and we raise the effectiveness of every machine as just a single kind of processes will run on it. This custom-made setup will enable you to enlarge your web sites as much as you'd like without having to worry about running out of hard disk space.
