Discover what "disk space" means in the realm of website hosting and what is the proper disk space quota for your needs.
The term "disk space" is oftentimes called "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these terms mean the same thing - the amount of info that you are able to upload to a cloud hosting account. The total size of everything you have is determined by accumulating the storage space consumed by the content in the account, the most apparent being the files you upload. Two more things are often disregarded by many users, though - emails and also databases. Large attachments or databases of huge script-driven internet sites will often require a lot of storage space too. In order to use a more familiar analogy, the hard disk space of your home computer is consumed not just by files that you download, but additionally by docs you write together with programs you add. In the same way, many things are counted in the disk space that your information employs on a website hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
We've created our Linux cloud hosting packages
with the idea that the disk storage should not be a problem for your websites. While many web hosting companies generate accounts using one server, and as a matter of fact, the most common Control Panels are made to run solely on such a platform, we have applied an alternative strategy. We have clusters of servers that control every element of the hosting service, to ensure that your files will be stored on a single cluster, the emails on another one,the databases on a third one, etcetera. With this cloud platform we accomplish a few things - the hdd space is virtually inexhaustible as we are able to connect as many servers and hard drives to our clusters as needed, and we improve the overall effectiveness of each and every machine as just a single kind of processes will operate on it. This tailor-made setup will help you expand your sites as much as you'd like without having to worry about not having enough hdd storage.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Considering that all our semi-dedicated server
plans are extremely powerful, we have decided not to limit the disk space attribute when we have created them. Our understanding is that when you employ a powerful plan, it is more than likely that you have a considerable amount of web content, for this reason every single semi-dedicated server plan comes with unlimited hard disk space, which will enable you to direct your attention to improving your sites without be worried if you will fit within a quota. Your web hosting account will be made on a cloud website hosting system in which the databases, files and emails have their own groups of servers, hence not only will the machines perform better as only one type of system processes will operate on them, but in addition you'll never have to worry about the hdd space since we will add as many servers or hard drives to every single cluster as required.
Disk Space in VPS Web Hosting
The hard disk storage that we provide with our virtual private servers
is different depending on the plan that you choose when you register. Having a more powerful server, you can easily manage a number of sites, which means more content, thus the higher the VPS plan, the more hdd space you will have at your disposal. Switching from one plan to another takes just a few mouse-clicks and it won't involve any service interruption. Your website files, databases and emails will share the amount of space the server contains, but if you'd prefer to have fixed quotas, you are able to pick cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel during the ordering process. Both instruments will allow you to make web hosting accounts with limited hard disk storage and when required, even to allot space from one existing account to a different one. With the third option that you will find on the order page, our Hepsia Control Panel, all domains will share the storage space.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers Hosting
With all the hard disk space that we offer with our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
, we guarantee that you'll be able to manage any kind of site irrespective of its capacity. You'll receive no less than 500 GB storage space, that you're able to use as you see fit - even for personal file depository. As standard, you'll be given 2 separate hard disks, that can be used independently, so as to take advantage of their overall capacity, or they can be used in RAID so that one will mirror the second one in real time to ensure that you will not miss important information in case of a hardware failure. You're also given the option to include additional hard drives to upgrade the whole hard disk storage available even further. This will allow you to build a file or image storage portal without a problem if you would like. When using the DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels that we offer, you can easily create a separate account for each and every domain name that you host on the server and pre-set a quota for the disk space it will use. If you choose the third choice, our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel, all domains will be operated in one place and they'll share the whole server disk space.
