The term "disk space" is oftentimes called "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words refer to the same thing - the volume of data that you are able to upload to a shared website hosting account. The overall size of what you have is determined by accumulating the space used by the entire content within the account, the most apparent being the types of files you upload. Two more things are often overlooked by various end users, though - e-mail messages along with databases. Large attachments or databases of big script-driven sites can often use a lot of disk space too. In order to employ a more common analogy, the disk space of your home computer is consumed not only by files that you download, but additionally by docs you generate and software programs you install. Likewise, various things are counted in the hard disk space your information takes on a web hosting server, not only the uploads.

Disk Space in Shared Website Hosting

All our shared website hosting packages were developed with the concept that deficiency of storage space shouldn't be something that can stop the growth of your websites. That's why we've used a technique which is distinct from the one that most web hosting providers apply - rather than making all the accounts on one server and subsequently not having enough hard disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is handled by a whole cluster of servers. In this way, we can always add more machines when they're needed or more HDDs, to be able to offer you more disk space for all of the files of our customers. Different clusters manage the e-mails and the databases, which means that not only are you able to develop your websites without having to worry about space, but also all of the servers will function better and faster due to the fact that each service features its own storage space and an individual server doesn't handle different types of files.

Disk Space in Dedicated Servers

With the hdd storage space that we provide with all our dedicated web hosting plans, we warrant that you will be able to operate any type of web site whatever its size. You will get at least 500 GB storage, that you can use as you see fit - even for personal file storage. By default, you'll have two separate HDDs, which can be used independent of each other, to take advantage of their entire storage capacity, or they can be in RAID and one will be a copy the other in real time to guarantee that you'll not miss precious information in the event of a hardware breakdown. You're also given the option to put more drives to increase the overall disk storage available even further. This will allow you to make a file or image storage portal without any problems if you'd like. When using the cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels that we offer, you'll be able to make an independent account for each and every domain that you host on your server and set a quota for the storage it will use. If you choose the third option, our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, all of the domain names will be operated in a single and they will share the overall server disk storage.
