The term "disk space" is sometimes identified as "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these terms mean the very same thing - the amount of information that you can upload to a shared web hosting account. The total size of everything you have is determined by accumulating the storage space taken by the overall content within the account, the most apparent being the files you upload. Two more things are commonly ignored by a lot of people, though - emails and databases. Large attachments and databases of large script-driven websites will often use a lot of disk space as well. To employ a more recognizable analogy, the hard drive space of your personal computer is taken not only by files that you download, but also by docs you create as well as software programs you add. Similarly, a number of things are counted towards the disk space that your data takes on a web site hosting server, not only the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting
To match the processing potential behind all our cloud website hosting plans, we've considered and employed the perfect alternative for the disk space - your account is not generated on a single server, but using a cluster system. Due to this fact, what we have designed is a large cluster of servers that is dedicated to the file storage only, hence you should never worry about running out of hard drive space and having to switch to another server because your existing one cannot accommodate more data. In the event that an additional space is needed, we simply attach more machines to the cluster, so that the hard drive space is inexhaustible. Still, our shared web hosting are designed to be used for websites, not for an archive of big files. We have individual machines for all the databases and the e-mail messages.
