The disk space function shows the overall volume of information that you can have on your shared hosting server at a time. With a home PC, for example, this is the capacity of one hard disk drive or the overall size of all of the hard drives in case that your computer has more than a single one. The same way that your space on a PC is divided between installed computer programs, documents, music etcetera, the server storage space is usually shared between site files, databases and email messages. Every single file, folder or email message will take a little storage space on the server, therefore you should take into consideration a lot of factors, not just the size of the files that you will upload. For instance, getting sizeable email attachments or using a script-driven internet site where the user-generated information is located in a database may also affect the hdd space you use.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

To match the processing effectiveness behind all of our cloud web hosting plans, we've taken into consideration and integrated the best possible system about the disk space - your hosting account is not made using just one server, but on a cluster system. Because of this, what we've built is a large cluster of servers that is focused on the file storage only, therefore you should never concern yourself with not having enough hard drive space and having to switch to an additional server since your existing one simply cannot accommodate more data. When extra space is required, all we have to do is attach extra machines to the cluster, so the hard drive space is virtually unlimited. Needless to say, all our shared hosting plans were made to be used for sites, not for a repository of big files. We have separate machines for all the databases as well as the e-mail messages.
