The disk space feature shows the full capacity of info that you could have on your shared hosting server at a time. With a home PC, for instance, this would be the size of one hdd or the overall volume of all the hard disk drives in the event that your PC has more than 1. Exactly as the space on a home machine is divided between installed computer programs, documents, music files etc, the server storage space is usually divided between website files, databases and email messages. Every file, folder or e-mail requires some storage space on the server, which means you should consider a bunch of factors, not just the size of the files which you upload. For instance, getting big e-mail attachments or using a script-driven website where the user-generated info is located in a database also affects the hdd space you use.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
We have designed our shared hosting with the concept that the disk storage should never be a setback for your web sites. While many website hosting companies create accounts using one server, and as a matter of fact, the most popular Control Panels were made to function solely on such a platform, we have used an alternative strategy. We have clusters of servers that control every single element of the website hosting service, which means that your files are stored on a single cluster, the emails on another,the databases on a third one, etc. Through this cloud platform we accomplish a few things - the hdd space is virtually inexhaustible as we're able link as many servers and hard drives to our clusters as required, and we raise the efficiency of every machine due to the fact that just a single kind of system processes will operate on it. This tailor-made setup will help you develop your sites as much as you'd like without worrying about running out of hard drive space.
