The term "disk space" is oftentimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words refer to the same thing - the volume of info that you'll be able to upload to a cloud website hosting account. The total size of everything you have is determined by accumulating the space taken by all the content in the account, the most obvious being the data files that you upload. Two more things are usually disregarded by various end users, though - email messages and databases. Large attachments and databases of large script-driven sites will often take a lot of storage space too. In order to employ a more familiar analogy, the hard disk space of your PC is taken not just by files that you download, but additionally by documents you generate and programs you add. Similarly, a number of things are counted in the disk space your information employs on a website hosting server, not just the uploads.

Disk Space in Cloud Website Hosting

We've designed our cloud website hosting with the concept that the disk space shouldn't be a setback for your web sites. While many website hosting providers make accounts using one server, and as a matter of fact, the most famous Control Panels are intended to run solely on such a platform, we have applied a completely different approach. We have clusters of servers that handle each part of the website hosting service, to ensure that your files will be stored on one cluster, your email on another,the databases using a third one, and so on. Using this cloud platform we accomplish two things - the hard drive space is actually infinite since we can easily attach as many servers and hard disk drives to our clusters as needed, and we increase the efficiency of each and every machine since just a single type of processes will operate on it. This custom setup will help you enlarge your websites as you see fit without worrying about running out of hard drive space.

Disk Space in Dedicated Servers

All our dedicated servers feature several hard disk drives in order to suit the computing power that you'll get, which means that you'll never need to worry for running out of disk space. The hard drives can be employed in RAID, meaning that a drive can be used as a mirror of another one so as to guarantee that all your info will be secured, alternatively it can be used as a stand alone for even larger complete storage capacity. Many hundreds of gigabytes of disk space will be at your disposal all the time, therefore you can manage huge web sites, upload large files and even back up your archive. As a dedicated server is definitely the most powerful kind of web hosting, you'll be able to upload/download files with very quick speeds. When necessary, we also provide the option to add more HDDs and employ even additional storage space for your content. We provide three hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - using Hepsia, all domain names will share the total server space and they will be operated from a single place, whereas with DirectAdmin and cPanel you'll have the option to generate separate website hosting accounts with certain disk space allocations for each domain name hosted on the server.
