The term "disk space" is sometimes identified as "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these words mean the same thing - the volume of information that you can upload to a web hosting account. The total size of what you have is determined by accumulating the storage space consumed by the entire content within the account, the most obvious being the files that you upload. Two more things are often ignored by various users, though - email messages and databases. Big attachments and databases of huge script-driven websites will often take a lot of storage space as well. In order to employ a more common analogy, the hard disk space of your computer system is consumed not just by files you download, but additionally by docs you make as well as programs you add. In the same way, numerous things are counted in the hard disk space your data takes on a web hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Web Hosting
To suit the processing potential behind our cloud web hosting plans, we have considered and employed the best possible system about the disk space - your account will not be generated on a single server, but using a cluster platform. For that reason, what we've developed is a whole collection of servers that is centered on the file storage only, so you should never concern yourself with running out of space and having to switch to an additional server as your existing one can't accommodate more data. If an additional space is required, all we need to do is add more machines to our cluster, so that the hard disk space is virtually limitless. Still, our Linux web hosting are designed to be used for sites, not for a database of big files. We also have different machines for your databases as well as the e-mails.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With all our semi-dedicated server packages, the hard disk storage attribute is not limited, so you will be able to focus on developing your sites the way they should be and not be concerned about getting to a restriction. Unlike a number of hosting providers that set up accounts on a single server, we employ a tailor-made cloud platform, which allows us to offer you truly unlimited hard disk space for each and every account. With just a single machine, there's a limited number of hard disks you can use, not mentioning that the most widespread hosting Control Panels weren't made to work with numerous servers simultaneously. Our platform, by contrast, uses clusters of servers for the site files, emails and databases, and our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel was made to work with it. We'll add as many servers to all of the clusters as required at any given time, so the hard disk space is virtually limitless.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers come with disk space quotas proportional to the processing power you will get with each and every plan. Employing a greater package, for example, the chances are greater that you will host various domain names or just a single big website, that is why the hdd space will increase as you upgrade the package. When you choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all the domains will share the storage, and if you select DirectAdmin or cPanel, you are able to make distinct hosting accounts and allocate a limited amount of the total VPS space for every individual domain. You can even share out disk storage from one domain to another when required. When you start with a certain VPS plan and you want additional space later on, you'll be able to update to a greater plan with no more than a few mouse-clicks in your billing area. The added resources will be placed in your existing plan with no server downtime or content migration.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
All of our Linux dedicated servers feature numerous hard disks so as to match the processing power that you will get, so you'll never need to worry for running out of disk space. The hard drives can operate in RAID, meaning that one drive can be a copy of another one so as to make sure that all your data will be secured, or it can be used separately for even bigger complete storage capacity. Many hundreds of gigabytes of disk storage will be available all the time, so you'll be able to manage huge web sites, upload big files and duplicate your own archive. Since a dedicated server is the most powerful type of web hosting, you will be able to upload/download files with very quick speeds. If required, we also provide you with the option to include more HDDs and make use of even additional storage for your content. We supply 3 hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - using Hepsia, all domains will share the overall server space and they will be managed in one place, whereas with DirectAdmin and cPanel you will have the option to set up individual web hosting accounts with pre-selected disk space allocations for every single domain name hosted on the server.
