The term "disk space" is oftentimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these terms refer to the very same thing - the amount of info that you are able to upload to a shared hosting account. The total size of the things you have is estimated by accumulating the space used by the entire content within the account, the most apparent being the types of files that you upload. Two more things are commonly ignored by the majority of people, though - e-mails and databases. Larger attachments or databases of big script-driven websites can sometimes use a lot of disk space as well. To employ a more common analogy, the disk space of your PC is consumed not just by files that you download, but also by docs you make along with software programs you install. Similarly, various things are counted towards the hard disk space that your info employs on a web site hosting server, not just the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
To match the processing potential behind all of our cloud web hosting packages, we've studied and applied the best possible system regarding the disk space - your account will not be generated using one server, but on a cluster system. For that reason, what we have made is a large group of servers that is focused on the file storage only, so that you should never worry about running out of space and having to move to a new server since your current one simply cannot accommodate more info. In the event that an additional space is required, all we have to do is add more machines to the cluster, so the hard disk space is practically unlimited. Of course, all of our shared plans are intended to be used for web sites, not for a database of large files. We also have separate machines for the databases as well as the e-mails.
