The disk space feature displays the full capacity of data that you could have on the shared hosting server at one time. With a desktop computer, for example, this would be the size of one hard disk drive or the full size of all of the hard disks in case that the computer has more than a single one. The same way that the space on a PC is shared between installed computer programs, documents, music etc, the server hard disk space is ordinarily divided between site files, databases and emails. Each file, folder or email will take a little space on your server, so you should take into consideration multiple factors, not just the size of the files which you upload. To give an example, having larger email attachments or using a script-driven site in which the user-generated content material is kept in a database may also affect the hdd space you use.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
To suit the processing performance behind our cloud website hosting packages, we've studied and employed the very best alternative regarding the disk space - your hosting account will not be generated using just one server, but on a cluster platform. Due to this fact, what we have made is a whole cluster of servers which is focused on the file storing only, therefore you should never be worried about running out of hard disk space and having to switch to an additional server as your current one simply cannot accommodate more data. If extra space is necessary, all we need to do is add extra machines to the cluster, so that the disk space is virtually inexhaustible. Of course, all of our Linux shared hosting are intended to be used for websites, not for a database of big files. We have individual machines for your databases and the email messages.
