The disk space feature shows the overall amount of data that you are able to have on your hosting server at any given time. With a personal computer, for example, this would be the size of one hard disk drive or the overall size of all of the hard disks in the event that the computer has more than 1. Exactly as the space on a home machine is divided between installed applications, documents, music files and the like, the server hdd space is divided between website files, databases and email messages. Each file, folder or email requires a little disk space on the server, therefore you should take into account multiple factors, not only the size of the files you upload. To give an example, receiving large e-mail attachments or using a script-driven website in which the user-generated content material is located in a database also affects the hdd space you use.

Disk Space in Hosting

We've designed our hosting with the notion that the hard disk storage should not be a problem for your websites. While many website hosting providers make accounts using a single server, and in fact, the most common Control Panels are designed to function solely on such a platform, we've used an alternative strategy. We have clusters of servers that control every element of the website hosting service, to ensure that your files will be stored on one cluster, the emails on another,the databases using a third one, and so on. Using this cloud platform we accomplish two things - the storage space is actually infinite since we are able to install as many servers and hard drives to our clusters as required, and we enhance the efficiency of each and every machine because only one kind of processes will operate on it. This custom-made setup will help you enlarge your web sites as much as you'd like without worrying about running out of disk space.

Disk Space in VPS Servers

For all our Linux VPS hosting plans, we offer plenty of disk storage for all your content that suits the other server characteristics, thus a more expensive plan comes with a larger allowance. You can use the storage space as you see fit, since there are no pre-defined quotas for your site files, databases or emails - all of them share the entire hard disk space of the server. Still, when you'd like to have some limitations, you'll be able to get your VPS package with cPanel or DirectAdmin as the hosting Control Panel, and then you'll be able to make web hosting accounts with a restricted volume of hard disk space for every single domain that you host on your server. In case you require more storage at some point, you will be able to easily boost your package with several mouse-clicks and the additional characteristics will be added to your existing account, so that you will not be required to migrate anything at all and your web sites will remain operational.

Disk Space in Dedicated Servers

Our Linux dedicated servers have several hard drives so as to suit the processing power that you will get, so that you'll never have to be worried about not having enough disk space. The hard disks can operate in RAID, which means a drive can be a mirror of another to make sure that all your data will be protected, or you can use it independently for even greater complete storage capability. Many hundreds of gigabytes of hdd space will be available all of the time, so you will be able to operate large web sites, upload enormous files and back up your personal archive. Considering that a dedicated server is the most powerful kind of web hosting, you can upload/download files with ultra fast speeds. If necessary, we also give you the option to include more hard drives and utilize even further space for your content. We offer 3 hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - using Hepsia, all your domain names will share the full server space and will be operated in a single place, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin you will have the alternative to create distinct website hosting accounts with pre-selected disk space quotas for every single domain hosted on the server.
