Discover what "disk space" signifies in the realm of hosting and what is the right disk space quota to suit your needs.
The disk space feature displays the total amount of info that you'll be able to have on your shared web hosting server at one time. With a personal computer, for example, this would be the size of your hard disk or the total size of all the hard disks in the event that your PC has more than 1. The same way that your space on a PC is shared between installed programs, documents, your music etc, the server hard disk space is normally divided between website files, databases and email messages. Each file, folder and email message will take a little storage space on your server, therefore you should consider a variety of factors, not just the size of the files that you upload. To give an example, receiving large email attachments or having a script-driven website where the user-generated info is located in a database may also affect the space you are using.
Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting
plans were designed with the idea that lack of storage space should not be something that will prevent the progress of your sites. That is why we've used an approach which is more advanced than the one that most website hosting companies apply - rather than generating a range of accounts on a single server and subsequently running out of hard disk space, we employ a cloud hosting platform in which the storage is handled by an entire cluster of servers. As a result, we're able to install more machines if they're required and / or more hard drives, to offer you additional disk space for all the files of our valued customers. Separate clusters manage the e-mails as well as the databases, therefore not only can you expand your websites without having to worry about storage space, but also the servers will operate better and faster since each and every service features its own space for storage and a single server doesn't handle different kinds of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you get a semi-dedicated server
package from our firm, you'll not have to worry about the hard disk space that you're able to use due to the basic reason that this attribute is unlimited. Unlike numerous other website hosting suppliers who advertise an identical service, yet make accounts using a single machine where a limited number of hard drives can be attached, we work with an avant-garde cloud platform which uses groups of servers. All your files will be kept on a single cluster, your e-mail messages on another, your databases on a third one etcetera. This kind of platform features 2 noteworthy advantages - first, the disk storage can never finish as we'll add more servers to any cluster that needs them, and second, the servers will function much more efficiently because they will handle just a single type of processes. A semi-dedicated server package provides you the convenience to enhance your web sites as much as you want.
Disk Space in VPS Hosting
The disk storage that we provide with our virtual private servers
ranges depending on the package that you pick when you sign up. Using a more powerful server, you're able to efficiently run multiple web sites, that means extra content, so the higher the VPS plan, the more hdd storage you will have at your disposal. Switching from one plan to another requires a couple of mouse-clicks and it will not involve any service interruption. Your web site files, databases and emails will share the amount of space the server contains, however if you prefer to use preset quotas, you are able to choose cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel during the ordering process. Each of the instruments will allow you to set up hosting accounts with restricted hard disk storage and when necessary, even to allocate space from one account to a different one. Using the third solution that you'll find on the order page, the Hepsia Control Panel, all domains will share the space.
Disk Space in Dedicated Web Hosting
All our Linux dedicated web hosting
include numerous hard disks to match the processing power that you will get, therefore you will never have to be worried about not having enough hdd storage. The HDDs can operate in RAID, i.e. one drive can be used as a copy of another one to make sure that your information will always be backed up, or you can use it as a stand alone for even greater overall storage capacity. Hundreds of gigabytes of disk storage will be at your disposal at all times, which means that you will be able to manage large web sites, upload enormous files or even copy your archive. Considering the fact that a dedicated server is definitely the most powerful form of web hosting, you will be able to upload/download files with extremely fast speeds. If required, we also give you the option to add more hard disks and make use of even additional storage space for your data. We offer 3 hosting Control Panels with the dedicated servers - with Hepsia, all domains will share the overall server space and they will be operated in a single place, whereas with DirectAdmin and cPanel you'll have the possibility to create individual hosting accounts with pre-selected disk space quotas for each and every domain hosted on your server.
