The disk space function displays the overall volume of data that you are able to have on the shared website hosting server at any time. With a home PC, for instance, this would be the overall size of a single hard disk or the full capacity of all of the hard disks in the event that your PC has more than just a single one. Exactly as the space on a home machine is divided between installed applications, documents, music files etc, the server disk space is divided between website files, databases and e-mail messages. Each file, folder and email message uses a little storage space on the server, which means you should take into account a bunch of factors, not just the size of the files that you upload. For instance, receiving sizeable e-mail attachments or having a script-driven site in which the user-generated content material is saved in a database also affects the hdd space you use.

Disk Space in Shared Website Hosting

All of our shared website hosting plans were designed with the notion that too little storage space cannot be something that should stop the growth of your sites. That is why we've applied a technique which is different from the one that most website hosting providers apply - instead of generating a range of accounts using one server and eventually running out of hard disk space, we employ a cloud hosting platform in which the storage is taken care of by an entire group of servers. Thus, we can easily install more machines whenever they are needed or more hard drives, so as to offer you additional disk space for all the files of our valued clients. Individual clusters handle the e-mails as well as the databases, thus not only is it possible to expand your websites without having to worry about hard disk space, but also the servers will perform better and faster due to the fact that every single service features its own space and a single server doesn't handle various kinds of files.

Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers

With all our semi-dedicated server packages, the hard disk capacity attribute is unlimited, so you are able to focus on developing your sites the way they should be and not worry about hitting some limit. Unlike the majority of hosting suppliers that make your accounts using one server, we employ a tailor-made cloud platform, which allows us to offer truly limitless hard disk storage for each and every account. With a single machine, there's a restricted number of hard disks that can be used, not mentioning that the most common hosting Control Panels are not intended to work with multiple servers at the same time. Our system, in contrast, includes clusters of servers for the web site databases, files and emails, and our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel was created to work with it. We are able to attach as many servers to any of the clusters as required at any time, so the disk space is virtually unlimited.

Disk Space in VPS Servers

All our Linux VPS plans include a large volume of hdd space in order to match your requirements and never restrict the development of your sites. Naturally, if you'd like to run a single resource-hungry site or plenty of smaller sites, you will need additional power altogether, so the higher the VPS package, the more hdd storage you'll have. Switching between the plans is very easy and the further space will be included in your account without transferring any data or stopping/restarting the server, so if you reach the space limit of your present package, you will be able to upgrade with a few mouse-clicks from your billing panel. Since we offer several hosting Control Panels with our virtual private servers, you have two options for your disk space control - using Hepsia, all sites share the overall server space, while using cPanel and DirectAdmin you will be able to make individual accounts for your domains and set an allowance for every account.

Disk Space in Dedicated Servers

When you use dedicated servers you will get all the storage space that you will need for your web sites, databases, emails and applications. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage will be at your disposal and not shared with anybody else, so you'll be able to upload all the data you may need - site files, personal or company archive backups, and so on. You will have a minimum of two separate hard disk drives that work in RAID, so one of the drives will mirror the other one in real time to ensure that all of your essential info is always protected. If you like, you are able to use the hard disks independent of each other and take advantage of the entire space the way you see fit. If required, it is possible to get supplementary hard drives attached to your server to have even greater storage space. You'll have the option to make hosting accounts with pre-defined hard disk space quotas when you order the server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the website hosting Control Panel. Selecting Hepsia, which is your third Control Panel alternative on the order page, all of the domain names hosted on your server will share the hard disk space and they will be operated through one account. In either case, our dedicated packages will meet all your needs regardless of the kind of site you need to host.
