Discover what "disk space" means in the world of web hosting and what is the disk space quota for your needs.
The term "disk space" is oftentimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words refer to the very same thing - the amount of data that you can upload to a web hosting account. The overall size of everything you have is calculated by accumulating the storage space taken by all the content within the account, the most apparent being the data files you upload. Two other things are commonly forgotten by many people, though - e-mail messages as well as databases. Larger attachments or databases of huge script-driven internet sites can often require a lot of storage space too. To employ a more familiar analogy, the disk space of your computer system is taken not just by files that you download, but additionally by documents you create plus programs you add. Similarly, many things are counted for the disk space your info takes on a web site hosting server, not just the uploads.
Disk Space in Web Hosting
To suit the processing performance behind all of our cloud web hosting packages, we've studied and applied the best possible alternative related to disk space - your account will not be made using a single server, but on a cluster system. For that reason, what we have made is an entire cluster of servers which is centered on the file storing only, therefore you should never worry about running out of HDD space and having to migrate to another server since your current one can not accommodate more information. Whenever an additional space is necessary, all we need to do is attach more machines to the cluster, so the hard drive space is unlimited. Needless to say, our web hosting plans
are intended to be used for websites, not for a database of large files. We have different machines for the databases as well as the email messages.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering the fact that all of our semi-dedicated server
packages are really powerful, we have decided by no means to restrict the disk space aspect when we have designed them. Our reason is that if you employ a powerful plan, it's more than likely that you've got a lot of web content, consequently every single semi-dedicated server package offers limitless disk space, which will allow you to focus on developing your web sites without be worried if you'll fit in a quota. Your website hosting account will be created using a cloud web hosting platform where the databases, files and emails use their individual groups of servers, hence not only will the machines operate more effectively as just a single type of system processes will work on them, but in addition you'll never need to worry about the hdd space because we can easily add as many servers or hard disks to every cluster as required.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Our dedicated web hosting plans
come with numerous HDDs to suit the processing power you'll get, therefore you won't ever need to be worried about not having enough hard disk space. The hard disks can operate in RAID, meaning that one drive can function as a mirror of another one so as to make sure that your information will always be backed up, or it can be used individually for even bigger complete storage capability. Many hundreds of gigabytes of hdd storage will be at your disposal all the time, therefore you'll be able to manage enormous sites, upload huge files and even copy your personal archive. Due to the fact that a dedicated server is the most powerful kind of hosting, you can upload/download files with very fast speeds. If required, we also provide you with the option to include more drives and utilize even additional storage for your data. We supply 3 hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - using Hepsia, all of your domain names will share the full server space and will be managed in a single place, while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you'll have the alternative to create separate hosting accounts with pre-selected disk space allocations for each and every domain hosted on the server.
