The disk space function displays the overall capacity of info that you'll be able to have on a cloud website hosting server at any time. With a desktop computer, for instance, this would be the size of one hdd or the full volume of all the hard disk drives in case that your PC has more than just a single one. The same way that the space on a personal computer is shared between installed programs, documents, music files etc, the server hdd space is usually divided between website files, databases and e-mail messages. Every single file, folder or e-mail will take a little storage space on your server, and that means you should consider a lot of factors, not just the size of the files that you will upload. For instance, having sizable email attachments or having a script-driven internet site where the user-generated info is located in a database may also affect the hdd space you are using.

Disk Space in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages were developed with the idea that not enough disk space can't be a thing that can obstruct the growth of your web sites. That's the reason why we've applied a technique which is more advanced than the one that most hosting suppliers take - instead of generating all the accounts using a singlle server and eventually not having enough disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is handled by a whole cluster of servers. That's why, we can add more machines when they are necessary or more hard drives, in order to provide additional disk space for all of the files of our customers. Separate clusters control your email messages as well as the databases, so not only can you increase the size of your sites without worrying about storage space, but also all of the servers will operate faster and better as each service has its own storage space and a single server doesn't handle different kinds of files.
