The term "disk space" is oftentimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", however 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 total size of everything you have is calculated by accumulating the storage space taken by all of the content within the account, the most obvious being the types of files that you upload. Two more things are often forgotten by a lot of end users, though - e-mails along with databases. Big attachments or databases of larger script-driven internet sites will often require a lot of disk space too. In order to employ a more familiar analogy, the hard drive space of your laptop or computer is taken not just by files that you download, but additionally by docs you write as well as programs you install. Similarly, many things are counted in the hard disk space your info takes on a web site hosting server, not only the uploads.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

To suit the processing power behind our cloud web hosting packages, we have thought over and employed the very best solution for the disk space - your account is not made using a single server, but using a cluster system. As a result, what we've developed is a whole group of servers which is dedicated to the file storing only, hence you should never be worried about not having enough HDD space and having to migrate to another server because your present one simply cannot accommodate more data. Whenever more space is required, we attach more machines to our cluster, so that the hard disk space is practically inexhaustible. Still, all of our shared hosting were made to be employed for websites, not for a collection of big files. We have different machines for your databases as well as the e-mail messages.

Disk Space in VPS Servers

The disk space that we offer with our VPS servers is different depending on the package that you pick at the time you sign up. Having a more powerful server, you'll be able to conveniently run an array of sites, meaning extra content, therefore the greater the VPS plan, the more hdd space you will have available. Changing from one plan to another takes a couple of clicks and it won't involve any service disruption. Your web site files, databases and emails will share the amount of space the server has, but if you prefer to use preset allocations, you'll be able to select cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel during the ordering process. Either of the instruments will enable you to set up web hosting accounts with restricted disk storage and if needed, even to allot space from one account to a different one. Using the third alternative that you can find on the order page, our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names will share the storage.
