The term "disk space" may also be called "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these words refer to the very same thing - the amount of data that you can upload to a cloud web hosting account. The full size of everything you have is estimated by accumulating the space consumed by the entire content in your account, the most obvious being the data files you upload. Two other things are often disregarded by the majority of users, though - e-mail messages along with databases. Sizable attachments and databases of big script-driven sites will often take a lot of disk space too. In order to use a more common analogy, the hdd space of your home computer is used not just by files that you download, but also by docs you create as well as programs you install. Likewise, numerous things are counted towards the hard disk space your info uses on a website hosting server, not only the uploads.

Disk Space in Cloud Web Hosting

To suit the processing performance behind all our cloud website hosting plans, we have thought over and included the very best alternative about the disk space - your hosting account is not generated on a single server, but using a cluster platform. For that reason, what we've created is a whole collection of servers that is dedicated to the file storing only, so that you should never concern yourself with not having enough hard disk space and having to move to an additional server as your current one simply cannot accommodate more content. When more space is necessary, we simply add extra machines to the cluster, so that the hard disk space is virtually limitless. Needless to say, all of our cloud web hosting plans are intended to be used for web sites, not for a database of big files. We have separate machines for all of the databases and the e-mail messages.

Disk Space in VPS Servers

The HDD space that we supply with our VPS servers varies according to the plan that you select when you register. Using a more powerful server, you can easily run a number of web sites, meaning additional content, which means that the greater the VPS plan, the more hdd storage you'll have available. Shifting from one plan to another usually takes a couple of clicks and it does not involve any kind of service interruption. Your site files, databases and emails will share the amount of space your server comes with, still if you'd rather to have preset quotas, you'll be able to pick cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel during the ordering process. Either of the tools will allow you to make web hosting accounts with restricted hdd storage and when necessary, even to allocate space from one existing account to a different one. Using the third option that you will find on the order page, the Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names will share the storage space.
