What is disk space? What is its place as part of the hosting world?
The disk space feature displays the total volume of data that you'll be able to have on a shared hosting server at any time. With a home PC, for instance, this would be the total size of one hard disk drive or the total capacity of all the hard drives in the event that your computer has more than one. The same way that your space on a personal computer is divided between installed computer programs, docs, music files etc, the server hdd space is usually shared between internet site files, databases and email messages. Every file, folder or email requires a little disk space on your server, therefore you should take into account quite a few factors, not only the size of the files that you will upload. To give an example, receiving larger email attachments or running a script-driven website where the user-generated content material is located in a database may also affect the hdd space you use.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
All of our shared hosting
packages were developed with the idea that insufficient hard disk space shouldn't be a thing that can prevent the growth of your sites. Because of this we have taken an approach which is distinct from the one that most website hosting providers use - instead of creating a range of accounts on a single server and subsequently not having enough storage space, we employ a cloud hosting platform in which the storage is handled by a large collection of servers. That's why, we are able to attach more machines in case they're required and / or more hard disk drives, so as to offer you additional disk space for the files of our users. Different clusters take care of the e-mail messages and your databases, which means that not only can you enhance your web sites not worrying about hard drive space, but also the servers will function better and faster as every single service does have its space for storing and a single server does not handle different types of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
packages have "disk space" as a feature in order to stress that it's absolutely unrestricted. We're able to achieve that by using a modern, custom cloud hosting platform, where your files, databases and emails will be stored on separate clusters of servers. We can add additional hard disks or entire servers to all of the clusters and at any time, plus our website hosting Control Panel is made to function with this kind of system. In contrast, the majority of Control Panels on the website hosting market can work only on one server, and in spite of what various companies advertise, they really generate multiple accounts on just a single machine. Having a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you will never need to concern yourself with disk space limits and you can direct your attention to developing your sites.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
feature disk space quotas proportionate to the processing power that you receive with every single plan. Getting a higher package, for instance, it is more likely you'll host a large number of domain names or a huge site, that is why the hdd space will increase as you upgrade your plan. If you pick our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all of the domain names will share the space, while if you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you are able to make independent hosting accounts and set a pre-defined volume of the whole VPS storage for each specific domain. You can even allot hdd storage from one domain to another when required. If you order a given VPS package and then you want additional storage afterwards, you're able to upgrade to a higher-end plan with no more than a couple of mouse-clicks in your billing area. The additional resources will be included in your active plan without any server downtime or content migration.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated servers
include multiple HDDs so as to suit the processing power you'll get, which means that you'll never have to be concerned about running out of hdd space. The drives can be employed in RAID, this means that one drive can be a copy of another to make sure that all your data will be backed up, or you can use it on its own for even greater full storage space. Hundreds of gigabytes of disk storage space will be available at all times, which means that you can operate enormous sites, upload large files or even keep a copy of your archive. Since a dedicated server is the most powerful form of hosting, you'll be able to upload/download files with very quick speeds. If necessary, we also provide you with the option to include more drives and utilize even additional storage space for your content. We offer 3 hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - using Hepsia, all domains will share the total server space and they will be managed in one place, while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you will have the possibility to set up individual web hosting accounts with pre-defined disk space quotas for every domain hosted on the server.
