The disk space function displays the full capacity of information that you'll be able to have on a web hosting server at one time. With a home PC, for instance, this would be the capacity of your hard disk drive or the full volume of all of the hard disk drives in case that your PC has more than a single one. The same way that your space on a home machine is shared between installed computer software, docs, your music and the like, the server storage space is shared between website files, databases and emails. Every file, folder or e-mail takes some storage space on your server, therefore you should take into account a bunch of factors, not just the size of the files you upload. For example, getting large e-mail attachments or having a script-driven internet site where the user-generated info is kept in a database may also affect the space you're using.
Disk Space in Web Hosting
We've designed our web hosting with the notion that the disk storage shouldn't be a problem for your sites. While many hosting companies generate accounts using a single server, and in fact, the most popular Control Panels are intended to function solely on such a platform, we have applied an alternative solution. We have clusters of servers that control each element of the web hosting service, so that your files are stored on one cluster, your email on a different one,the databases on a third one, etc. On this cloud platform we achieve a couple of things - the hdd space is virtually infinite as we are able to link as many servers and hard drives to the clusters as needed, and we enhance the efficiency of each machine because just a single kind of system processes will run on it. This custom-built setup will enable you to enlarge your sites as you see fit without worrying about not having enough hdd space.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you won't have to concern yourself with the hard disk space that you may use due to the basic reason that this characteristic is limitless. In contrast to lots of other website hosting suppliers that advertise an identical service, yet create accounts on a single machine where quite a limited number of hard drives can be connected, we employ an innovative cloud platform which uses clusters of servers. All of your files will be kept on one cluster, the e-mail messages on a different one, your databases on a third one and so on. This type of platform gives you 2 important advantages - first, the hard disk storage will never finish since we'll install extra servers to every cluster that needs them, and second, the servers will run much more effectively for they will take care of just a single kind of system processes. A semi-dedicated server package provides you the convenience to enhance your web sites as much as you want.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
The minimum amount of hard disk space which you can get using our dedicated servers is 500 gigabytes. You will have 2 hard disk drives, 250 GB each, and it is up to you the way you will allot this space. You can easily have the hard drives in RAID, so that all your info will be secured as one drive will function as a real-time mirror of the other one, or you are able to have them operate independently, in order to use the full storage space potential that will be at your disposal. The storage space of our dedicated servers is sufficient for everything - huge web shops, data depository portal, individual archive clone, and many more. We'll never hold back your web sites with regard to the hard disk space they use. When that they begin increasing, we give you the option to add more hard disks to your existing server as needed. When you obtain the server with DirectAdmin or cPanel for the hosting Control Panel, you can also set up a unique account for every single hosted domain and set a hard disk storage space quota for it. With Hepsia all your domain names will be hosted in a single and they will share the overall server space.
