What precisely is disk space? What is its place as part of the web hosting world?
Each time you upload information on a web hosting server, you will need an amount of space on the hard disk depending on its overall size. If you operate a script-driven website which stores its info in a database, it will require more disk space, the more people work with it. For example, if you have a community forum, the greater number of opinions people leave, the bigger the database will get. Emails, in particular ones having attachments, also need some disk space in the website hosting account. The hard disk space quota that you will get with any cloud hosting provider is the full amount of data you can have at any moment, which incorporates website files, e-mail messages as well as databases. Similarly, a computer has a hdd and the computer programs installed on it plus all of the documents and music files that you create or download take some storage, which cannot exceed the full capacity of your hard disk drive.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
In order to suit the processing potential behind all our cloud web hosting packages, we've studied and applied the most effective system regarding the disk space - your hosting account is not created using one server, but on a cluster system. For that reason, what we have created is a whole group of servers that is dedicated to the file storage only, consequently you should never be worried about running out of hard disk space and having to move to a different server because your existing one is unable to accommodate more information. When an additional space is required, we simply add extra machines to our cluster, so the storage space is unlimited. Of course, all of our Linux cloud hosting plans
are intended to be employed for web sites, not for an archive of large files. We have separate machines for your databases as well as the e-mail messages.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated server
plans have "disk space" as a characteristic just to stress that it's truly limitless. We were able to achieve that by means of a revolutionary, custom-made cloud hosting platform, where your files, emails and databases are stored on different clusters of servers. We can easily add additional hard disk drives or entire servers to any of the clusters and at any time, plus our website hosting Control Panel was created to support this type of system. In contrast, the majority of Control Panels on the hosting market can work only on one server, and irrespective of what a large number of companies advertise, they really create various accounts on just a single machine. Employing a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll never have to concern yourself with hard disk storage restrictions and you are able to concentrate on expanding your web sites.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
feature disk space allocations proportional to the computing power that you get with each package. With a greater package, for instance, the chances are greater you'll host a variety of domains or a single large web site, so your hdd storage grows as you upgrade the plan. When you pick our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all of the domain names will share the storage, and if you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you're able to generate distinct website hosting accounts and allocate a restricted amount of the overall VPS storage for each specific domain. You can even reallocate disk space from one domain to another when necessary. If you acquire a particular VPS package and you require further space at some point, you are able to upgrade to a better plan with no more than a couple of mouse-clicks in your billing area. The extra resources will be placed in your current plan without any server downtime or content migration.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
With all the hdd space that we offer with our Linux dedicated web hosting plans
, we warrant that you'll be able to manage every web site regardless of its overall size. You'll get no less than 500 GB storage, which you're able to employ as you see fit - even for private file storage. By default, you will get two HDDs, that can be used separately, in order to take advantage of their full storage capacity, or they can be connected in RAID so that one will be a duplicate the other in real time to warrant that you won't miss important information in the event of a hardware fail. We also give you the option to include extra hard drives to upgrade the total HDD storage for your use even more. This will allow you to build a file or image storage portal without any problems if you'd like. When using the cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels that we provide, you can set up an independent account for each site that you host on the server and pre-set an allowance for the storage it can use. When you go for the third choice, our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, all of your domain names will be managed in one place and they'll share the entire server disk storage.
