What is disk space? What is its place as part of the hosting world?
Whenever you upload information on a web hosting server, it takes a certain amount of storage space on the hdd depending on its overall size. If you manage a script-driven site which keeps its data in a database, you will need more disk space, the more people make use of it. For example, in case you have a discussion board, the greater amount of opinions people leave, the larger the database will get. Messages, especially ones using attachments, also require some disk space in the web hosting account. The hard disk space quota you get with each website hosting supplier is the amount of information you may have at any given moment, and it consists of web site files, e-mails plus databases. Likewise, a personal computer has a hard drive and the computer software installed on it plus all the documents and music files that you generate or download require space, which can't exceed the total capacity of your hard disk drive.
Disk Space in Website Hosting
We've developed our Linux website hosting
with the notion that the hard disk storage should not be an issue for your web sites. While many web hosting providers set up accounts using one server, and as a matter of fact, the most common Control Panels are designed to work solely on this kind of platform, we have applied an alternative strategy. We have groups of servers that manage each aspect of the website hosting service, so that your files will be stored on one cluster, your email on another one,the databases using a third one, etcetera. Using this cloud platform we achieve a couple of things - the hdd space is virtually infinite considering that we can link as many servers and hard disk drives to the clusters as needed, and we enhance the effectiveness of every machine since just one type of processes will run on it. This custom-made setup will enable you to develop your sites as much as you'd like without worrying about running out of hard drive space.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server
package from us, you'll not have to concern yourself with the hdd space that you're able to use because of the simple reason that this attribute is unrestricted. By contrast to many other hosting companies that advertise the same service, yet create accounts on a single machine where a limited number of hard drives can be connected, we employ a revolutionary cloud system that employs clusters of servers. All of your files will be kept on one cluster, your email messages on a different one, your databases on a third one etc. This kind of platform offers 2 significant advantages - first, the hdd space will not finish as we are able to connect additional servers to every cluster that requires them, and second, the servers will function much more effectively since they will be in charge of only one kind of processes. A semi-dedicated server package will give you the opportunity to expand your sites as much as you need.
Disk Space in VPS
For all of our Linux VPS
, we provide plenty of disk space for all of your content that matches the other server capabilities, thus a higher plan has a higher allowance. You are able to use the storage as you can see fit, as there are no pre-defined allocations for your website files, emails or databases - all of them share the whole hdd space on the server. Of course, if you'd rather have some limitations, you're able to acquire your VPS plan with cPanel or DirectAdmin as the hosting Control Panel, then you can generate web hosting accounts with a limited amount of hard disk space for each individual domain name that you host on the server. In case you want additional storage space someday, you can quickly upgrade your package with a few mouse-clicks then the extra features will be added to your existing account, so you will not be expected to move anything at all and all your websites will continue to be operational.
Disk Space in Dedicated Hosting
All our Linux dedicated hosting
come with numerous hard disk drives so as to match the processing power that you'll get, which means that you'll never have to be worried for not having enough hdd space. The hard drives can operate in RAID, which means a drive can be a mirror of another one in order to guarantee that your data will be secured, alternatively it can be used as a stand alone for even greater overall storage capability. Many hundreds of gigabytes of hard disk storage space will be available all the time, so that you will be able to operate large websites, upload large files or even back up your individual archive. Since a dedicated server is definitely the most powerful type of website hosting, you can upload/download files with very quick speeds. When necessary, we also provide you with the option to include more hard drives and use even more storage for your data. We supply three hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - with Hepsia, all of your domain names will share the entire server space and will be managed in a single place, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin you'll have the option to set up separate web hosting accounts with certain disk space allocations for every single domain hosted on your server.
