Discover what "disk space" implies in the world of hosting and what is the proper disk space quota for you.
The term "disk space" is oftentimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these terms mean the exact same thing - the volume of data that you'll be able to upload to a shared website hosting account. The full size of what you have is calculated by accumulating the storage space consumed by all of the content within the account, the most obvious being the types of files you upload. Two more things are often overlooked by various users, though - emails and databases. Large attachments or databases of large script-driven websites can sometimes need a lot of storage space as well. To use a more familiar analogy, the hdd space of your PC is used not only by files that you download, but also by documents you write together with software programs you install. In a similar way, various things are counted for the hdd space that your info takes on a web hosting server, not only the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Website Hosting
All of our shared website hosting
packages were developed with the notion that too little disk space cannot be a thing that can limit the development of your sites. Which is why we've applied an approach which is not the same as the one that most hosting providers take - rather than generating a number of accounts on a single server and subsequently running out of disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is handled by a large cluster of servers. Because of this, we can attach more machines in case they are needed and / or more hard disks, so as to offer you more disk space for the files of our valued clients. Different clusters take care of your e-mail messages and the databases, as a result not only is it possible to expand your websites without worrying about hdd space, but also all of the servers will perform better and faster since every single service has its own space for storing and a single server does not handle various types of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With all of our semi-dedicated server
plans, the hard disk capacity attribute is not limited, so that you'll be able to concentrate on building your web sites the way you'd like them to be and not be worried about hitting some limit. Unlike lots of hosting providers that generate accounts on one server, we employ an in-house made cloud platform, which enables us to offer you truly limitless hdd space for each and every account. With just a single machine, there's a limited number of hard drives you can use, not mentioning that the most popular hosting Control Panels weren't designed to work with a large number of servers simultaneously. Our platform, on the other hand, makes use of clusters of servers for the web site files, emails and databases, and our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel was designed to work with it. We can easily install as many servers to each of the clusters as needed at any time, so that the disk space is virtually limitless.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
All our VPS hosting plans
contain a large amount of hard disk storage to fulfill all of your demands but not restrict the development of your sites. Of course, if you would like to operate just a single resource-hungry website or a number of smaller-sized web sites, you will need additional power altogether, so that the greater the VPS package, the more hard disk space you will have. Moving between our packages is a breeze and the extra space will be added to your current account without transferring any data or stopping/restarting the server, so if you hit the storage limit of your existing plan, you are able to upgrade with a couple of clicks from your billing panel. Since we provide you with several hosting Control Panels for our virtual private servers, you are given two options for your disk space control - by using Hepsia, all the sites share the whole server space, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin you'll be able to create individual accounts for the domains and create a quota for every single account.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Selecting dedicated web hosting plans
you will get all of the hard disk space that you'll need for your sites, databases, e-mails and applications. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage space will be at your disposal and not shared with anyone else, which means that you're able to upload all the info you may need - web site files, personal or company archive backup copies, and so on. You will get no less than 2 separate hard disk drives that function well in RAID, so one drive will mirror the other one in real time in order to make sure that all of your valuable content is always backed up. If you like, you can use the disks individually and employ the whole storage space in any way you see fit. When necessary, you'll be able to get additional hard disks linked to the server to have even greater storage space. You will have the option to set up hosting accounts with pre-defined hdd space quotas when you get the server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel. Using Hepsia, which is the 3rd Control Panel solution on the order page, all domains hosted on your server will share the HDD storage and they will be operated via one account. Either way, our dedicated plans will satisfy all your requirements regardless of the type of site you have to host.
