The term "disk space" may also be identified as "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words refer to the exact same thing - the amount of data that you are able to upload to a shared hosting account. The total size of the things you have is determined by accumulating the storage space consumed by all the content in the account, the most apparent being the files you upload. Two other things are frequently ignored by a lot of users, though - e-mails along with databases. Larger attachments or databases of large script-driven internet sites will often need a lot of storage space as well. In order to employ a more recognizable analogy, the hard drive space of your laptop or computer is taken not just by files you download, but additionally by docs you generate along with programs you add. Similarly, a number of things are counted for the hard disk space your info needs on a web hosting server, in addition to the uploads.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

We've designed our Linux shared hosting service with the concept that the hard disk storage should not be an issue for your websites. While many web hosting providers create accounts using a single server, and as a matter of fact, the most widespread Control Panels are intended to operate solely on this kind of platform, we have applied a different approach. We have groups of servers that take care of each part of the website hosting service, to ensure that your files are stored on a single cluster, the emails on a different one,your databases using a third one, etcetera. On this cloud platform we accomplish two things - the hard disk space is actually inexhaustible due to the fact that we're able attach as many servers and hard disk drives to the clusters as required, and we enhance the effectiveness of each machine since only one type of system processes will run on it. This custom-built setup will enable you to enlarge your web sites as much as you'd like without worrying about running out of hdd storage.

Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our semi-dedicated server packages, the hard disk space characteristic is unlimited, so that you will be able to concentrate on developing your websites the way you like and never be concerned about hitting a limit. Unlike the majority of hosting suppliers that set up accounts on a single server, we employ a custom cloud platform, which enables us to provide truly unlimited hdd space for each and every account. With a single machine, there's a limited number of HDDs you can use, not mentioning that the most common hosting Control Panels weren't meant to function with numerous servers concurrently. Our platform, in contrast, includes clusters of servers for the website files, emails and databases, plus our in-house Hepsia Control Panel was designed to work with it. We can easily connect as many servers to any of the clusters as required at any time, so the hard disk space is practically unlimited.

Disk Space in VPS Servers

With all of our Linux VPS servers, we provide plenty of disk space for your content that matches all of the other server characteristics, which means that a more expensive plan includes a bigger quota. You are able to use the space as you can see fit, since there are no specific allowances for the site files, databases or emails - all of them share the whole disk space on the server. Of course, if you would like to have some limitations, you're able to purchase your VPS plan with cPanel or DirectAdmin as the hosting Control Panel, and then you'll be able to make website hosting accounts with a restricted amount of disk space for each individual domain name that you host on the server. In case you want more storage at some point, you'll be able to quickly upgrade your package with several clicks and then the additional characteristics will be included with your existing account, so you won't be required to move anything and all your web sites will always be operational.

Disk Space in Dedicated Servers

With all the disk storage that we supply with all of our dedicated servers, we guarantee that you can operate any type of web site whatever its proportions. You'll get no less than 500 GB storage space, that you can use as you see fit - even for private file depository. By default, you will have two hard disk drives, that can be employed separately, so as to take advantage of their total storage space, or they can be in RAID and one will be a copy the other one in real time to ensure that you'll not waste important info in case of a hardware failure. You'll also be given the option to put more hard drives to upgrade the overall disk space available even more. This makes it possible for you to make a file or image storage portal without any problems if you'd like. Using the DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels that we offer, you're able to make an independent account for every single site that you host on the server and set an allowance for the space it will be allowed to use. If you select the third choice, our in-house Hepsia Control Panel, all your domains will be managed in a single and they will share the overall server hard disk storage space.
