The disk space function displays the total volume of data that you can have on the shared hosting server at a time. With a personal computer, for instance, this is the capacity of your hdd or the full size of all the hard drives in the event that the computer has more than one. The same way that your space on a home machine is divided between installed programs, docs, your music etc, the server disk space is typically divided between site files, databases and emails. Every file, folder and email takes a little storage space on the server, and that means you should consider quite a few factors, not just the size of the files you upload. To give an example, receiving sizable e-mail attachments or having a script-driven website in which the user-generated info is kept in a database will also affect the space you use.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
To suit the processing performance behind all our cloud website hosting packages, we have thought over and applied the most effective solution about the disk space - your hosting account is not created using a single server, but on a cluster platform. As a result, what we have created is a large cluster of servers which is dedicated to the file storage only, so that you should never concern yourself with not having enough space and having to migrate to a different server as your existing one is unable to accommodate more data. Any time extra space is required, all we need to do is add more machines to our cluster, so that the storage space is virtually unlimited. Still, all our Linux shared hosting are designed to be used for websites, not for a database of large files. We also have separate machines for your databases as well as the e-mails.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With all of our semi-dedicated server packages, the hdd storage feature is not limited, so that you are able to direct your attention to creating your web sites the way they should be and not worry about reaching some restriction. Unlike countless hosting suppliers that create your accounts on one server, we employ a custom cloud platform, that allows us to supply truly limitless disk storage for every single account. With just a single machine, there're only so many HDDs that you can use, not mentioning that most of the hosting Control Panels are not meant to work with numerous servers at the same time. Our platform, by contrast, employs clusters of servers for the website databases, files and emails, and our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel was created to work with it. We are able to add as many servers to each of the clusters as required at any given time, so the disk space is virtually inexhaustible.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers have disk space quotas proportional to the processing power that you receive with each plan. By using a greater plan, for example, the chances are greater that you'll host a large number of domain names or just a single large web site, so your hard disk storage increases as you upgrade the package. When you employ our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all of the domain names will share the storage space, while if you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you are able to make distinct hosting accounts and allocate a limited amount of the full VPS storage space for each individual domain. You can even share out disk storage from one domain to another when required. If you start with a certain VPS plan and you want extra space in the future, you're able to upgrade to a higher-end plan with just a few clicks in your billing area. The added system resources will be included in your present plan without any downtime or content migration.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
The lowest hard disk storage that you can get with our dedicated servers is 500 GB. You'll have two separate hard disk drives, 250 GB each, and it is up to you the way in which you'll use this space. You may have the hard disks in RAID, therefore all of your content will always be protected as one drive will be a real-time mirror of the other one, or you'll be able to make them operate individually, in order to use the overall storage volume that will be available to you. The hard disk space of all of our dedicated servers is sufficient for everything - major virtual stores, data depository portal, personal archive copy, and many more. We'll never keep back your sites with regard to the hard disk storage they can use. Once that they start growing, we supply you with the opportunity to add more hard drives to your present server if needed. If you get the server with DirectAdmin or cPanel for the hosting Control Panel, you'll also be able to make a separate account for each hosted domain name and set a hdd space quota for it. Using Hepsia all of the domain names will be hosted in a single and they will share the entire server space.
