The disk space feature shows the overall capacity of data that you are able to have on a shared web hosting server at any given time. With a personal computer, for example, this would be the overall size of a single hdd or the full size of all the hard disk drives in the event that your computer has more than a single one. Exactly as the space on a home machine is shared between installed programs, documents, your music etcetera, the server hard disk space is normally divided between website files, databases and emails. Each file, folder or email message uses some space on your server, therefore you should consider a number of factors, not only the size of the files that you will upload. To give an example, having larger email attachments or running a script-driven internet site where the user-generated content is kept in a database also affects the hdd space you're using.

Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting

In order to suit the processing potential behind our cloud web hosting packages, we've taken into consideration and employed the best possible system for the disk space - your account is not created using a single server, but on a cluster system. As a result, what we've assembled is a large cluster of servers which is centered on the file storage only, so that you should never concern yourself with running out of hard disk space and having to move to another server since your current one is unable to accommodate more content. Any time more space is needed, all we need to do is add more machines to the cluster, so the storage space is practically unlimited. Needless to say, all our shared web hosting were made to be used for sites, not for a collection of large files. We also have different machines for all the databases and the e-mail messages.
