What exactly is disk space? What is its place in the web hosting world?
The term "disk space" is oftentimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these words refer to exactly the same thing - the volume of information that you'll be able to upload to a shared hosting account. The total size of what you have is estimated by accumulating the storage space consumed by all the content in your account, the most apparent being the files that you upload. Two other things can often be overlooked by the majority of end users, though - emails and also databases. Big attachments and databases of big script-driven websites will often take a lot of storage space as well. In order to employ a more familiar analogy, the disk space of your computer is consumed not only by files you download, but also by docs you generate together with programs you install. Likewise, a number of things are counted in the disk space that your content takes on a web hosting server, not only the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
All of our shared hosting
packages were created with the concept that not enough disk space can't be something that should obstruct the growth of your web sites. That's why we have applied an approach which is more advanced than the one that most hosting companies use - instead of just generating countless accounts using one server and subsequently not having enough disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is taken care of by a large group of servers. Thus, we are able to attach more machines in case they're necessary and / or more hard drives, to be able to provide you with extra disk space for all the files of our valued clients. Separate clusters take care of the e-mail messages and your databases, which means that not only is it possible to expand your web sites without worrying about space, but also the servers will operate better and faster since each and every service features its own storage space and an individual server doesn't handle various kinds of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our semi-dedicated server
packages, the hard disk space feature is unrestricted, so you'll be able to center on building your sites the way you like and not be concerned about getting to some restriction. Unlike countless hosting providers that make accounts using one server, we use an in-house made cloud platform, that allows us to supply truly limitless hard disk storage for every single account. With a single machine, there are only so many HDDs that you can use, not mentioning that most of the hosting Control Panels weren't made to function with a large number of servers simultaneously. Our system, in contrast, incorporates clusters of servers for the site files, emails and databases, and our custom Hepsia Control Panel was created to work with it. We're able to install as many servers to each of the clusters as required any time, so the hdd space is practically unlimited.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
All our VPS web hosting plans
feature a huge amount of hard disk storage in order to meet all of your needs and never restrict the development of your websites. Of course, if you would like to operate a single resource-consuming web site or a lot of smaller-sized websites, you'll require additional power in general, so that the greater the VPS plan, the more disk storage you'll have. Shifting between the different plans is super easy and the further space will be added to your account without migrating any data or stopping/restarting your server, so when you hit the space restriction of your existing package, you can upgrade with a couple of clicks in your billing section. Since we provide you with several website hosting Control Panels for our virtual private servers, you will have two options for your disk space control - using Hepsia, all the web sites will share the overall server storage space, while using cPanel and DirectAdmin you'll be able to set up individual accounts for the domain names and set an allocation for each account.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
With the disk storage that we offer with our dedicated web hosting plans
, we warrant that you can operate every site irrespective of its overall size. You'll receive at least 500 GB storage space, that you can employ as you see fit - even for private file depository. As standard, you'll have 2 hard drives, which can be employed independently, in order to make use of their full storage capacity, or they can be used in RAID so that one will mirror the second one in real time to warrant that you won't miss crucial info in the event of a hardware breakdown. We also give you the opportunity to include additional disks to upgrade the entire disk storage you can use even more. This allows you to create a file or image depository portal without any problems if you'd like. Thanks to the DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels that we offer, you are able to set up an individual account for each and every website that you host on your server and pre-define an allowance for the disk space it can use. If you choose the 3rd option, our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, all the domains will be managed in one place and they will share the full server disk storage.
