The term "disk space" is sometimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these terms mean exactly the same thing - the volume of info that you'll be able to upload to a shared hosting account. The full size of the things you have is estimated by accumulating the storage space taken by all of the content within your account, the most obvious being the data files you upload. Two more things can often be overlooked by the majority of end users, though - e-mail messages and also databases. Larger attachments and databases of large script-driven sites will often use a lot of disk space as well. To use a more common analogy, the hard drive space of your computer is consumed not only by files that you download, but also by documents you create together with programs you add. Similarly, a number of things are counted in the hard disk space your data needs on a website hosting server, not just the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
To suit the processing performance behind all our cloud website hosting plans, we have taken into consideration and integrated the very best solution related to disk space - your account will not be generated using a single server, but on a cluster platform. Therefore, what we've developed is an entire cluster of servers that is dedicated to the file storage only, so that you should never concern yourself with running out of HDD space and having to move to another server as your present one can not accommodate more information. In the event that an additional space is required, we just add extra machines to our cluster, so that the disk space is virtually inexhaustible. Still, our Linux shared packages are meant to be used for web sites, not for an archive of big files. We also have distinct machines for the databases as well as the e-mails.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated server plans have "disk space" as a characteristic simply to accentuate that it's truly unlimited. We are able to achieve that by using a modern, custom-built cloud hosting system, where your databases, files and emails will be kept on individual clusters of servers. We can add extra hard disk drives or whole servers to all of the clusters and whenever necessary, and our hosting Control Panel was designed to work with this type of system. In contrast, the majority of Control Panels on the hosting market can function only on a single server, and in spite of what lots of companies advertise, they really create a number of accounts on a single machine. Having a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll never need to concern yourself with disk storage restrictions and you will be able to direct your attention to developing your websites.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers Hosting
With the disk storage that we offer with all our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages, we warrant that you will be able to operate every web site whatever its proportions. You'll receive no less than 500 GB storage, which you can employ as you see fit - even for personal file depository. As standard, you will have two hard drives, which can be used independent of each other, so as to use their entire storage capacity, or they can be connected in RAID so that one will be a duplicate the second one in real time to ensure that you will not lose crucial data in the event of a hardware fail. You'll also be given the opportunity to add more HDDs and increase the whole hard disk storage available even further. This makes it possible for you to make a file or image storage portal without a problem if you would like. When using the DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels that we offer, you're able to make a separate account for each site that you host on your server and pre-define an allowance for the storage it will use. If you choose the 3rd option, our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel, all domains will be operated from a single and they will share the total server disk storage space.
