The disk space function shows the total volume of information that you're able to have on a cloud hosting server at any given time. With a home PC, for example, this is the capacity of a single hard disk or the overall size of all the hard drives in case that your computer has more than one. The same way that the space on a home machine is shared between installed programs, documents, music etc, the server hard disk space is ordinarily shared between website files, databases and emails. Every file, folder or email requires some storage space on your server, therefore you should take into consideration a bunch of factors, not only the size of the files you upload. For instance, having large email attachments or using a script-driven site where the user-generated content material is stored in a database will also affect the space you use.

Disk Space in Cloud Hosting

To suit the processing effectiveness behind all of our cloud website hosting packages, we have taken into consideration and implemented the perfect alternative related to disk space - your hosting account is not created on a single server, but on a cluster system. Because of this, what we've built is a whole group of servers which is centered on the file storage only, so that you should never worry about not having enough hard drive space and having to migrate to an additional server as your present one simply cannot accommodate more information. Any time more space is required, we attach extra machines to the cluster, so the storage space is practically inexhaustible. Still, all of our cloud plans are intended to be used for web sites, not for a collection of big files. We also have distinct machines for all of the databases and the e-mails.
