What precisely is disk space? What is its place as a part of the hosting world?
The disk space feature displays the total amount of data that you are able to have on your web hosting server at one time. With a personal computer, for example, this is the overall size of your hard disk or the overall size of all hard drives in case that the computer has more than one. Exactly as your space on a PC is shared between installed computer software, docs, your music and so forth, the server storage space is divided between site files, databases and email messages. Each file, folder and e-mail will take some disk space on your server, which means you should think about numerous factors, not only the size of the files that you upload. For example, getting big email attachments or having a script-driven website in which the user-generated information is located in a database will also affect the space you're using.
Disk Space in Web Hosting
We've developed our web hosting plans
with the concept that the hard disk storage shouldn't be an issue for your web sites. While many web hosting suppliers generate accounts on a single server, and in fact, the most popular Control Panels are intended to operate solely on such a platform, we've taken a different strategy. We have groups of servers that take care of every single part of the hosting service, to ensure that your files will be stored on one cluster, your email on another one,the databases using a third one, etc. On this cloud platform we accomplish two things - the hdd space is virtually inexhaustible due to the fact that we can add as many servers and hard drives to the clusters as required, and we improve the overall efficiency of each and every machine as only one kind of processes will run on it. This custom setup will help you extend your web sites as much as you'd like without having to worry about running out of disk space.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our semi-dedicated server
plans, the disk space characteristic is not limited, so that you will be able to direct your attention to creating your web sites the way you like and not be worried about getting to a restriction. Unlike many hosting providers that generate your accounts on one server, we take advantage of an in-house built cloud platform, that allows us to offer truly unlimited hdd storage for every single account. With just a single machine, there's a limited number of hard disk drives that can be used, not mentioning that the most popular hosting Control Panels weren't designed to function with several servers at the same time. Our system, however, makes use of clusters of servers for the website emails, databases and files, and our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel was designed to work with it. We can easily install as many servers to any of the clusters as needed at any time, so that the disk space is virtually limitless.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
For our VPS hosting plans
, you can expect ample disk storage for all of your content that matches all of the other server features, so a better plan includes a bigger quota. You can use the storage space as you can see fit, since there are no pre-defined quotas for the site files, databases or emails - all of them share the overall hard disk space on your server. However, if you'd like to have some limitations, you're able to obtain your VPS package with cPanel or DirectAdmin as the hosting Control Panel, and then you will be able to make web hosting accounts with a limited volume of hard disk storage for each individual domain that you host on the server. In case you require extra space someday, you'll be able to effortlessly boost your plan with a few mouse-clicks and then the extra characteristics will be added to your current account, so that you will not be expected to migrate anything at all and all your sites will always be up and running.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Choosing dedicated web hosting plans
you will get all the disk space that you will need for your web sites, databases, e-mails and applications. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage will be accessible and not shared with anybody else, hence you'll be able to upload any content you will need - web site files, personal or company archive backups, etc. You'll get no less than 2 separate hard disks that work in RAID, so that one drive will mirror the other in real time to guarantee that your essential data is always backed up. If you prefer, you will be able to use the HDDs separately and employ the whole space in any way you see fit. When needed, you can also get extra drives connected to your server to get even more storage space. You'll have the option to create hosting accounts with fixed hdd storage allowances when you obtain the server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel. With Hepsia, which is the 3rd Control Panel choice on the order page, all of the domain names hosted on the server will share the hard disk storage space and they'll be handled from a single account. Either way, our dedicated packages will satisfy all your needs regardless of the type of web site you would like to host.
