The term "disk space" is sometimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words refer to exactly the same thing - the amount of info that you'll be able to upload to a shared hosting account. The total size of everything you have is estimated by accumulating the space used by the overall content within the account, the most apparent being the files you upload. Two more things are generally disregarded by a lot of users, though - email messages along with databases. Sizable attachments or databases of big script-driven sites can often use a lot of storage space as well. To employ a more familiar analogy, the disk space of your computer system is used not only by files you download, but additionally by documents you make as well as software programs you add. Likewise, many things are counted in the disk space that your info uses on a web site hosting server, in addition to the uploads.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

We've developed our Linux shared hosting with the notion that the hard disk storage will not be a problem for your websites. While many hosting providers generate accounts using one server, and in fact, the most famous Control Panels are designed to run solely on such a platform, we've taken a different approach. We have groups of servers that handle every element of the hosting service, which means that your files are stored on one cluster, the emails on a different one,your databases on a third one, and so on. Through this cloud platform we accomplish a couple of things - the hdd space is virtually inexhaustible considering that we are able to link as many servers and hard drives to our clusters as needed, and we increase the performance of every machine because just one kind of system processes will run on it. This custom setup will enable you to develop your web sites as you see fit without worrying about running out of disk space.

Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Considering the fact that all our semi-dedicated server packages are rather powerful, we've made the decision never to limit the disk space characteristic when we have developed them. Our understanding is that if you use a powerful package, it is likely that you have a large amount of web site info, consequently every semi-dedicated server package offers limitless hard disk space, which will allow you to direct your attention to enhancing your web sites not having to worry whether you will suit some allowance. Your hosting account will be created using a cloud web hosting platform where the emails, files and databases have their own groups of servers, thus not only will the machines function more efficiently as just one type of system processes will run on them, but also you'll never need to worry about the disk storage as we're able to attach as many servers or hard drives to every cluster as needed.

Disk Space in VPS

The hard disk storage that we provide with our virtual private servers ranges depending on the plan that you pick when you register. By using a more powerful server, you're able to easily operate different web sites, meaning more content, which means that the greater the VPS plan, the more hard drive space you will have at your disposal. Shifting from one plan to another will take just a couple of clicks and it does not involve any service disruption. Your web site databases, files and emails will share the the full amount of space your server has, still if you'd rather to have fixed allocations, you'll be able to pick cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel throughout the ordering process. Both tools will allow you to generate hosting accounts with limited hdd storage and if needed, even to allocate space from one account to another one. When using the third alternative that you'll find on the order page, the Hepsia Control Panel, all domains will share the space.

Disk Space in Dedicated Hosting

All of our Linux dedicated hosting come with multiple HDDs so as to suit the computing power you'll get, so you will never have to be concerned for running out of hard disk space. The HDDs can operate in RAID, i.e. a drive can be used as a copy of another so as to make sure that your info will always be protected, or it can be used on its own for even larger complete storage capability. Many hundreds of gigabytes of hard disk storage will be at your disposal all of the time, so you will be able to operate large web sites, upload big files and even back up your archive. Considering the fact that a dedicated server is the most powerful kind of web hosting, you can upload/download files with very quick speeds. When necessary, we also give you the option to include more drives and employ even further storage space for your data. We supply three hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - using Hepsia, all of your domain names will share the total server space and will be operated in one place, while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you will have the possibility to set up distinct website hosting accounts with certain disk space quotas for each and every domain name hosted on the server.
