The disk space function shows the total amount of info that you're able to have on your cloud website hosting server at one time. With a home PC, for example, this would be the overall size of a single hard disk or the total capacity of all hard drives in case that your PC has more than a single one. The same way that the space on a personal computer is shared between installed applications, documents, music files and so on, the server hard disk space is shared between website files, databases and e-mail messages. Every single file, folder and email message will take a little space on the server, so you should think about plenty of factors, not just the size of the files that you upload. For instance, getting sizable email attachments or running a script-driven website where the user-generated content material is located in a database will also affect the space you use.

Disk Space in Cloud Website Hosting

All of our cloud website hosting packages were created with the notion that limited hard disk space should not be a thing that can prevent the development of your web sites. For this reason we have applied an approach which is more advanced than the one that most hosting companies use - instead of just creating a number of accounts using a singlle server and eventually not having enough disk space, we employ a cloud hosting platform where the storage is taken care of by an entire collection of servers. As a result, we can easily install more machines if they are required or more HDDs, to offer extra disk space for all of the files of our users. Separate clusters take care of the emails and your databases, which means that not only will you be able to develop your websites without having to worry about hdd space, but also the servers will operate better and faster considering the fact that each and every service has its own space and one server does not handle different kinds of files.
