Anytime you upload a file on a web hosting server, it takes a certain amount of storage space on the hard disk drive dependent on its overall size. In the event that you have a script-driven internet site which keeps its info in a database, it will need more space, the more people work with it. For example, if you have a discussion forum, the greater number of comments people write, the greater the database shall get. E-mails, especially ones having attachments, also need some disk space in the site hosting account. The HDD space quota that you get with each shared website hosting provider is the overall amount of data you may have at any moment, and it includes web site files, emails as well as databases. Similarly, a home PC has a hdd and the computer software installed on it as well as all the docs and music files that you create or download take some space, which can't exceed the overall capacity of your hard drive.

Disk Space in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans were designed with the notion that shortage of storage space shouldn't be something that should prevent the development of your websites. Because of this we've used a technique which is distinct from the one that most hosting suppliers use - instead of just creating countless accounts on one server and subsequently not having enough storage space, we use a cloud hosting platform where the storage is taken care of by a whole collection of servers. Thus, we can easily attach more machines in case they are required and more hard drives, to provide more disk space for all the files of our valued customers. Different clusters handle your email messages as well as the databases, as a result not only can you enhance your websites without worrying about space, but also all of the servers will function better and faster since each service does have its space and an individual server doesn't handle various types of files.

Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers

Considering that our semi-dedicated server plans are rather powerful, we have made the decision not to limit the disk space aspect when we have developed them. Our idea is that if you buy a powerful plan, it is likely that you have a lot of website data, consequently each semi-dedicated server package features unrestricted disk capacity, which will allow you to focus on developing your sites not be concerned if you'll fit within some allowance. Your hosting account will be set up on a cloud web hosting system in which the files, databases and emails use their individual clusters of servers, hence not only will the machines operate better given that only a single type of system processes will run on them, but in addition you won't ever have to worry for the disk space because we're able to add as many servers or hard disks to every single cluster as required.

Disk Space in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated servers have multiple hard disks in order to match the processing power you'll get, therefore you won't ever have to be concerned about running out of hdd storage. The hard disks can be used in RAID, i.e. a drive can function as a copy of another one to guarantee that all your data will always be backed up, or it can be used independently for even greater full storage space. Hundreds of gigabytes of hdd storage space will be available all of the time, so you can operate large sites, upload huge files and even copy your personal archive. Since a dedicated server is the most powerful form of web hosting, you can upload/download files with very fast speeds. If needed, we also give you the option to include more hard disks and utilize even more storage for your data. We provide 3 hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - using Hepsia, all your domain names will share the full server space and will be operated from a single place, whereas with DirectAdmin and cPanel you will have the option to set up individual web hosting accounts with certain disk space allocations for every single domain hosted on the server.
