What's disk space? What is its place as a part of the Internet hosting world?
The term "disk space" may also be identified as "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these terms mean the same thing - the volume of data that you are able to upload to a hosting account. The total size of what you have is calculated by accumulating the space used by the content in your account, the most obvious being the files you upload. Two more things are frequently forgotten by the majority of people, though - e-mails and databases. Sizable attachments and databases of big script-driven internet sites can often use a lot of storage space as well. In order to use a more familiar analogy, the hard drive space of your laptop or computer is used not only by files you download, but additionally by docs you write and software programs you add. In a similar way, a number of things are counted in the disk space your information employs on a web site hosting server, not just the uploads.
Disk Space in Hosting
All our hosting
plans were designed with the idea that shortage of storage space should not be something that will reduce the growth of your sites. For that reason we've applied a technique which is more advanced than the one that most hosting companies take - rather than creating countless accounts using one server and eventually not having enough disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is handled by an entire cluster of servers. In this way, we can always attach more machines if they're necessary and / or more hard disks, to supply more disk space for the files of our clients. Separate clusters control the email messages as well as the databases, thus not only is it possible to enhance your websites without having to worry about space, but also all of the servers will perform faster and better since each service has its own storage space and an individual server doesn't handle various kinds of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
Considering that all of our semi-dedicated server
plans are extremely powerful, we have made the decision by no means to restrict the disk space characteristic when we have developed them. Our understanding is that if you employ a powerful package, it's very likely that you have plenty of website information, for this reason every single semi-dedicated server package has limitless hdd storage, which will enable you to direct your attention to enhancing your web sites without worrying whether you will fit in an allowance. Your hosting account will be made on a cloud website hosting platform where the databases, files and emails have their own groups of servers, thus not only will the machines function far better considering that just one type of system processes will run on them, but also you will not ever need to worry for the hdd space as we can attach as many servers or hard disks to each and every cluster as required.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
provide a great amount of disk storage to fulfill all your demands and never restrict the development of your sites. Certainly, in order for you to manage a single resource-consuming website or plenty of smaller-sized ones, you'll require more power altogether, which means that the better the VPS package, the more disk storage you'll get. Switching between the plans is really easy and the extra space will be added to your current account without moving any data or stopping/restarting the server, so when you reach the space restriction of your current plan, you can always upgrade with just a few clicks in your billing section. Since we offer you several website hosting Control Panels for our virtual private servers, you will have two options for the disk space management - by using Hepsia, all the web sites share the overall server space, while using DirectAdmin and cPanel you will be able to set up individual accounts for your domain names and set an allocation for every account.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
With the hard disk storage space that we provide with all of our dedicated servers
, we warrant that you will be able to manage any kind of web site whatever its size. You'll receive no less than 500 GB storage space, which you're able to use the way you see fit - even for personal file depository. By default, you'll get two separate hard disks, that can be used on their own, to use their overall storage capacity, or they can be used in RAID so that one will mirror the other one in real time to warrant that you'll not miss valuable info in the event of a hardware malfunction. You're also given the option to add additional drives to increase the overall HDD space for your use even more. This will allow you to make a file or image depository portal without any problems if you'd like. When using the DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels that we offer, you are able to set up a separate account for every single website that you host on your server and set a quota for the storage space it'll be allowed to use. If you go for the 3rd option, our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel, all your domains will be managed in one place and they'll share the full server disk storage space.
