The term "disk space" may also be called "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these terms refer to the very same thing - the volume of info that you can upload to a hosting account. The overall size of everything you have is estimated by accumulating the space consumed by all the content within the account, the most apparent being the data files that you upload. Two more things are commonly ignored by the majority of people, though - email messages as well as databases. Larger attachments or databases of larger script-driven websites will often need a lot of storage space as well. To use a more common analogy, the hard disk space of your laptop or computer is consumed not only by files you download, but also by docs you make plus programs you install. In a similar way, many things are counted in the hdd space that your content needs on a web hosting server, not just the uploads.
Disk Space in Hosting
Our hosting packages were created with the concept that lack of hard disk space shouldn't be something that will obstruct the progress of your web sites. Which is why we've used an approach which is more advanced than the one that most hosting providers use - instead of just creating all the accounts using a singlle server and subsequently not having enough hard disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform in which the storage space is handled by a whole group of servers. That's why, we are able to attach more machines if they are needed and / or more hard disk drives, in order to provide you with more disk space for the files of our clients. Individual clusters manage the e-mails as well as your databases, which means that not only is it possible to enhance your websites without worrying about hard drive space, but also all the servers will function faster and better as every single service has its own space and a single server doesn't handle different kinds of files.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Our dedicated servers have multiple HDDs in order to suit the processing power that you will get, so that you'll never have to be concerned for not having enough hdd space. The hard drives can be used in RAID, i.e. one drive can be a copy of another drive in order to guarantee that all of your information will always be backed up, or it can be used separately for even bigger full storage space. Many hundreds of gigabytes of disk space will be available all of the time, thus you can operate large sites, upload huge files and even keep a copy of your own archive. Since a dedicated server is the most powerful type of web hosting, you'll be able to upload/download files with very fast speeds. When required, we also give you the option to include more hard drives and employ even further space for your data. We supply 3 hosting Control Panels with the dedicated servers - with Hepsia, all domains will share the total server space and will be managed in a single place, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin you'll have the alternative to set up separate web hosting accounts with pre-defined disk space quotas for every single domain name hosted on the server.
