Discover what "disk space" refers to in the realm of website hosting and what is the right disk space quota to meet your requirements.
The term "disk space" is sometimes identified as "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these terms refer to exactly the same thing - the amount of information that you can upload to a cloud hosting account. The full size of everything you have is calculated by accumulating the space taken by all of the content within your account, the most obvious being the data files that you upload. Two more things are frequently disregarded by a lot of end users, though - e-mails and databases. Larger attachments or databases of big script-driven websites can sometimes need a lot of disk space too. In order to employ a more familiar analogy, the hard disk space of your PC is used not just by files you download, but also by docs you write as well as programs you install. In the same way, a number of things are counted for the hard disk space your data uses on a web site hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
All of our cloud hosting
plans were developed with the idea that not enough hard disk space cannot be something that will limit the progress of your websites. That's the reason why we've used a technique which is different from the one that most website hosting suppliers use - instead of just generating all of the accounts using one server and subsequently not having enough disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform in which the storage is taken care of by a wide cluster of servers. Thus, we can always add more machines when they are needed and more hard disk drives, to provide additional disk space for the files of our clients. Separate clusters control the e-mail messages and the databases, consequently not only are you able to develop your web sites not worrying about hard drive space, but also the servers will operate better and faster owing to the fact that each and every service has its own space for storing and an individual server does not handle different kinds of files.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
The HDD storage that we supply with our VPS servers
varies based on the package that you choose at the time you sign up. With a more powerful server, you can easily run various sites, that means more content, thus the higher the VPS plan, the more disk storage you will have available. Changing from one plan to another usually takes a couple of clicks and it won't involve any service disruption. Your website databases, files and emails will share the the entire amount of space the server contains, still if you'd like to get fixed quotas, you can choose cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel during your ordering process. Either of the tools will allow you to set up hosting accounts with limited disk storage and if needed, even to allocate space from one account to a different one. With the third alternative that you can find on the order page, our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names will share the space.
