Each time you upload a file on a web hosting server, it takes a certain amount of storage space on the hdd dependent on its particular size. If you manage a script-driven site which keeps its data in a database, it will take more space, the more people work with it. For instance, in case you have a message board, the greater number of responses people write, the bigger the database gets. Messages, particularly ones using attachments, also need some disk space in the web hosting account. The hard disk space quota that you get with each web hosting supplier is the overall amount of info you can have at any moment, which contains website files, email messages and databases. Similarly, a home computer has a hard disk and the programs installed on it together with any documents and music files that you generate or download take some disk space, which cannot surpass the total capacity of the hard disk.
Disk Space in Web Hosting
We've developed our Linux web hosting packages
with the idea that the disk storage should not be a setback for your websites. While many website hosting providers produce accounts using a single server, and as a matter of fact, the most famous Control Panels were made to run solely on such a platform, we've used an alternative strategy. We have clusters of servers that manage every aspect of the hosting service, so that your files are stored on a single cluster, your email on another,the databases on a third one, etcetera. With this cloud platform we accomplish a couple of things - the hard drive space is virtually endless as we are able to install as many servers and hard disks to our clusters as required, and we increase the efficiency of every machine since just one kind of processes will operate on it. This custom-built setup will help you enhance your sites as you see fit without having to worry about not having enough hard disk space.
