The disk space function shows the overall amount of information that you are able to have on a shared hosting server at a time. With a home PC, for example, this is the total size of one hard disk or the overall volume of all of the hard drives in case that your PC has more than one. Exactly as your space on a home machine is divided between installed programs, documents, music files and so on, the server disk space is normally shared between site files, databases and email messages. Every single file, folder and e-mail requires some disk space on the server, and that means you should take into consideration a variety of factors, not just the size of the files which you upload. To give an example, receiving larger e-mail attachments or having a script-driven site in which the user-generated information is located in a database may also affect the hdd space you use.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

We've created our shared plans with the notion that the disk space should not be an issue for your web sites. While many web hosting companies set up accounts on a single server, and as a matter of fact, the most common Control Panels are intended to function solely on this type of platform, we have taken an alternative solution. We have groups of servers that control every single element of the web hosting service, to ensure that your files will be stored on one cluster, your email on another one,the databases on a third one, etc. Using this cloud platform we accomplish a couple of things - the hard drive space is actually endless due to the fact that we are able to install as many servers and hard disks to our clusters as required, and we improve the efficiency of each machine as just one type of system processes will operate on it. This tailor-made setup will help you enhance your websites as you see fit without having to worry about not having enough disk storage.
