The disk space feature shows the full capacity of data that you are able to have on the website hosting server at any time. With a home PC, for instance, this is the capacity of one hard disk or the overall size of all of the hard drives in the event that your computer has more than just a single one. The same way that your space on a PC is shared between installed applications, documents, music and so forth, the server hdd space is shared between internet site files, databases and email messages. Each file, folder or email message uses some space on your server, and that means you should consider a number of factors, not just the size of the files that you upload. To give an example, having large email attachments or having a script-driven website where the user-generated information is saved in a database will also affect the hdd space you're using.
Disk Space in Website Hosting
We've designed our website hosting plans
with the concept that the hard disk storage won't be a setback for your web sites. While many web hosting suppliers create accounts using one server, and as a matter of fact, the most famous Control Panels are intended to work solely on this kind of platform, we've used a completely different approach. We have clusters of servers that take care of every part of the hosting service, so that your files will be stored on a single cluster, the emails on another,your databases on a third one, and so on. Using this cloud platform we achieve a couple of things - the hdd space is actually endless considering that we can easily attach as many servers and hard disk drives to the clusters as required, and we improve the performance of every single machine due to the fact that only one type of system processes will run on it. This custom setup will allow you to expand your web sites as you see fit without worrying about not having enough hard disk space.
