The disk space feature displays the total volume of data that you can have on the cloud web hosting server at one time. With a personal computer, for example, this is the size of one hard drive or the overall capacity of all the hard disk drives in case that your computer has more than one. Exactly as the space on a personal computer is divided between installed programs, documents, music and the like, the server disk space is usually divided between website files, databases and e-mail messages. Every single file, folder or email takes a little storage space on the server, therefore you should take into account a variety of factors, not only the size of the files that you upload. To give an example, getting larger email attachments or using a script-driven website where the user-generated content is stored in a database also affects the space you're using.

Disk Space in Cloud Web Hosting

In order to match the processing power behind all our cloud website hosting packages, we have studied and included the most effective solution regarding the disk space - your hosting account is not made on a single server, but on a cluster platform. Due to this fact, what we've designed is an entire collection of servers that is focused on the file storing only, so you should never concern yourself with not having enough HDD space and having to switch to a different server because your current one can not accommodate more data. Whenever an additional space is necessary, we simply attach more machines to our cluster, so the disk space is virtually inexhaustible. Still, all of our Linux cloud web hosting services are intended to be employed for sites, not for a repository of large files. We also have separate machines for the databases as well as the e-mail messages.
