Discover what "disk space" denotes in the realm of web hosting and what is the right disk space quota for your needs.
Anytime you upload data on a web hosting server, it will take a certain amount of space on the hard disk drive depending on its particular overall size. In case you manage a script-driven internet site which stores its data in a database, it will take more space, the more people use it. To give an example, in case you have a discussion forum, the more opinions people write, the bigger the database shall get. E-mail messages, in particular ones with attachments, also require some space in the site hosting account. The disk space quota that you receive with any cloud web hosting provider is the total amount of info you can have at any moment, and this consists of website files, email messages and databases. Likewise, a home PC has a hard drive and the computer programs installed on it plus all documents or music files that you make or download require some disk space, which can't surpass the total capacity of the hard disk.
Disk Space in Cloud Web Hosting
In order to match the processing performance behind all our cloud web hosting packages, we've considered and implemented the best possible alternative about the disk space - your account will not be generated on a single server, but on a cluster system. Due to this fact, what we've designed is a large collection of servers that is centered on the file storage only, so you should never worry about running out of hard drive space and having to switch to another server since your existing one can not accommodate more data. If an additional space is necessary, we simply add extra machines to our cluster, so the disk space is practically limitless. Needless to say, all our Linux cloud web hosting service
were made to be employed for websites, not for an archive of big files. We also have different machines for the databases and the emails.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With all our semi-dedicated server
packages, the disk space characteristic is unlimited, so you're able to direct your attention to creating your websites the way you like and never be worried about hitting some limit. Unlike numerous hosting providers that set up accounts on just a single server, we use an in-house built cloud platform, which enables us to offer truly unrestricted hdd storage for each and every account. With a single machine, there's a limited number of hard disk drives that can be used, not mentioning that the most popular hosting Control Panels are simply not meant to function with a large number of servers simultaneously. Our platform, however, employs clusters of servers for the website databases, files and emails, and our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel was designed to work with it. We'll connect as many servers to any of the clusters as required any time, so the disk space is virtually unlimited.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
come with disk space quotas proportionate to the computing power that you get with every single plan. Getting a higher plan, for instance, it is more likely you'll host various domain names or a big web site, so the disk space will increase as you upgrade your plan. When you pick our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all of the domain names will share the space, while if you pick DirectAdmin or cPanel, you can set up distinct website hosting accounts and allocate a fixed amount of the entire VPS storage space for each specific website. You can even allot hdd space from one domain to another if required. When you order a given VPS package and you want additional storage in the future, you'll be able to update to a greater plan with no more than a few mouse-clicks from your billing area. The extra system resources will be included in your existing plan with no downtime or content migration.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Using our dedicated service
you'll get all the storage space that you will need for your web sites, databases, e-mails and apps. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage space will be at your disposal and not shared with others, thus you'll be able to upload all the information you may need - site files, personal or company archive backup copies, and so on. You'll get at least two separate hard disks that work in RAID, so that one of the drives will mirror the other one in real time in order to guarantee that your precious content is always backed up. If you like, you're able to use the hard disks independently and employ the whole storage space the way you see fit. If needed, you may also get additional drives added to the server to have even additional storage space. You will have the option to create hosting accounts with pre-defined hdd space allowances when you obtain your server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel. With Hepsia, which is the third Control Panel option on the order page, all domain names hosted on the server will share the HDD space and they will be handled from one account. In each case, our dedicated packages will meet all of your requirements whatever the kind of site you have to host.
