The disk space feature shows the full capacity of information that you can have on the shared web hosting server at one time. With a home PC, for example, this is the size of a single hdd or the full size of all of the hard disk drives in case that your computer has more than just a single one. Exactly as the space on a home machine is divided between installed computer programs, docs, music files and so forth, the server hard disk space is normally divided between internet site files, databases and e-mail messages. Every file, folder or email uses some space on the server, and that means you should take into account a bunch of factors, not just the size of the files you upload. For instance, getting large email attachments or having a script-driven internet site in which the user-generated info is stored in a database also affects the hdd space you are using.

Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting

All our shared web hosting plans were designed with the notion that limited storage space cannot be something that can stop the development of your sites. That is why we've taken an approach which is more advanced than the one that most web hosting companies apply - instead of generating all of the accounts on a single server and eventually not having enough disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform in which the storage is handled by an entire cluster of servers. As a result, we are able to attach more machines if they're required or more hard disk drives, to provide additional disk space for the files of our customers. Different clusters take care of the emails and the databases, consequently not only is it possible to increase the size of your web sites without worrying about hdd space, but also all the servers will function faster and better considering the fact that every service has its own space for storage and an individual server does not handle various kinds of files.
