What exactly is disk space? What is its place as part of the Internet hosting world?
Whenever you upload information on a web hosting server, it will need a certain amount of storage space on the hard drive depending on its size. In the event that you manage a script-driven site which stores its data in a database, it will take more disk space, the more people work with it. For example, in the event that you have a community forum, the more comments people write, the greater the database will get. E-mail messages, in particular ones with attachments, also need some disk space in the site hosting account. The HDD space quota that you will get with any cloud hosting supplier is the overall amount of data you may have at any given moment, and it consists of website files, email messages plus databases. Likewise, a PC has a hdd and the computer programs installed on it as well as all of the documents and music files that you generate or download take some storage space, which cannot surpass the total capacity of the hard disk.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
All our cloud hosting
plans were developed with the notion that limited hard disk space should not be something that can obstruct the growth of your web sites. For that reason we have used a technique which is not the same as the one that most hosting suppliers use - rather than creating all of the accounts using one server and eventually running out of storage space, we employ a cloud hosting platform where the storage is taken care of by an entire group of servers. In this way, we are able to install more machines in case they're needed or more hard disks, to offer additional disk space for all the files of our clients. Different clusters control the email messages as well as the databases, therefore not only can you develop 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 service has its own storage space and an individual server does not handle different kinds of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server
packages have "disk space" as a characteristic simply to highlight that it's absolutely unlimited. We can reach that by means of a modern, custom cloud hosting platform, where your emails, databases and files are kept on different clusters of servers. We will add additional hard drives or whole servers to all of the clusters and at any time, and our web hosting Control Panel was designed to function with such a platform. In contrast, nearly all of the Control Panels on the web hosting market can function only on one server, and in spite of what many companies advertise, they really set up various accounts on a single machine. Using a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll never need to worry about hard disk storage restrictions and you will be able to concentrate on developing your sites.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
For our VPS hosting plans
, we offer sufficient disk storage for your content that matches all of the other server features, thus a more expensive package features a larger quota. You'll be able to use the space as you see fit, since there're no pre-defined quotas for the web site files, databases or emails - they all share the total disk space of the server. Yet, in case you'd like to have some limits, you're able to purchase your VPS package with cPanel or DirectAdmin as the hosting Control Panel, then you will be able to make web hosting accounts with a restricted volume of hdd space for each individual domain name that you host on your server. In case you require extra space at some point, you're able to easily upgrade your plan with several mouse-clicks and then the extra features will be included with your existing account, so that you won't need to migrate anything and all your sites will stay operational.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
When you use dedicated web hosting plans
you will get all the disk space that you'll need for your sites, databases, emails and applications. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage will be accessible and not shared with others, which means that you can upload all of the info you would like - website files, personal or company archive backup copies, and so on. You will get a minimum of two separate hard disks that function well in RAID, so one drive will mirror the other one in real time in order to make sure that all your valuable info is always backed up. If you like, you'll be able to use the drives separately and utilize the entire storage space the way you see fit. If needed, you may also get additional hard disks connected to the server and have even greater disk space. You'll have the option to set up hosting accounts with pre-defined hard disk storage allowances if you order the server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the website hosting Control Panel. Selecting 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 controlled via one account. In either case, our dedicated plans will meet your demands whatever the type of web site you need to host.
