Discover what "disk space" denotes in the world of hosting and what is the right disk space quota to meet your needs.
The disk space function displays the total capacity of data that you could have on a shared hosting server at a time. With a personal computer, for instance, this would be the capacity of a single hard disk or the overall capacity of all the hard drives in case that the PC has more than 1. The same way that your space on a personal computer is divided between installed applications, documents, music and the like, the server storage space is normally shared between website files, databases and email messages. Every single file, folder or email requires some storage space on your server, so you should consider various factors, not only the size of the files that you upload. For example, having sizable email attachments or running a script-driven website where the user-generated information is kept in a database also affects the space you are using.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
We've created our shared hosting plans
with the concept that the hard disk storage will not be an issue for your websites. While many website hosting providers set up accounts using a single server, and as a matter of fact, the most famous Control Panels are intended to function solely on this kind of platform, we have used an alternative solution. We have groups of servers that take care of every element of the website hosting service, so that your files are stored on one cluster, your email on another,the databases on a third one, etcetera. With this cloud platform we accomplish a few things - the storage space is virtually limitless considering that we are able to install as many servers and hard disk drives to the clusters as required, and we increase the effectiveness of each machine since just a single type of processes will operate on it. This custom-made setup will enable you to enlarge your web sites as much as you'd like without worrying about running out of hard drive space.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server
package from our firm, you do not have to worry about the hard disk space that you're able to use because of the simple reason that the feature is unrestricted. By contrast to many other website hosting suppliers that advertise the same service, but set up accounts using a single machine where a limited number of hard drives can be connected, we work with an innovative cloud platform which uses clusters of servers. All of your files will be kept on one cluster, your email messages on another, the databases on a third one and so on. This system has 2 noteworthy advantages - first, the disk space will not ever finish because we can install extra servers to every cluster that requires them, and second, the servers will operate much more effectively since they'll be in charge of just a single type of processes. A semi-dedicated server package provides you the flexibility to enhance your web sites as much as you need.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Because of the hdd space that we offer with our dedicated web hosting plans
, we guarantee that you'll be able to operate every web site irrespective of its proportions. You'll receive a minimum of 500 GB storage, which you can use the way you see fit - even for private file storage. As standard, you will have 2 separate HDDs, which can be employed on their own, so as to make use of their overall storage capacity, or they can be in RAID and one will be a copy the other in real time to warrant that you won't lose precious information in case of a hardware failure. We also give you the option to include extra HDDs and increase the whole disk space available even further. This allows you to create a file or image storage portal without any problems if you'd like. Thanks to the cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels that we provide, you'll be able to create an independent account for each domain name that you host on the server and pre-define an allowance for the disk space it will be allowed to use. If you select the third option, our custom Hepsia Control Panel, all your domains will be operated in one place and they'll share the total server disk space.
