The disk space feature shows the overall volume of information that you're able to have on your cloud web hosting server at a time. With a desktop computer, for instance, this would be the overall size of your hard disk or the full capacity of all the hard disks in case that the computer has more than 1. Exactly as your space on a personal computer is divided between installed programs, docs, your music and the like, the server hard disk space is usually divided between website files, databases and emails. Each file, folder or email requires a little storage space on your server, therefore you should take into account a bunch of factors, not only the size of the files that you will upload. To give an example, receiving sizeable e-mail attachments or having a script-driven website in which the user-generated information is located in a database will also affect the hdd space you're using.
Disk Space in Cloud Web Hosting
In order to match the processing potential behind all of our cloud website hosting plans, we've considered and employed the very best option about the disk space - your account is not created using a single server, but using a cluster platform. As a result, what we have assembled is an entire collection of servers that is dedicated to the file storing only, so you should never be worried about not having enough hard drive space and having to migrate to another server since your existing one is unable to accommodate more info. Whenever extra space is needed, we simply add more machines to the cluster, so that the hard drive space is virtually inexhaustible. Of course, our Linux cloud web hosting are intended to be used for web sites, not for a repository of large files. We have different machines for all of the databases and the e-mails.
