What exactly is disk space? What is its place as a part of the hosting world?
Each time you upload data on a web hosting server, it will take an amount of storage space on the hard drive depending on its overall size. When you operate a script-driven website which keeps its data in a database, it will need more space, the more people use it. For instance, in case you have a message board, the more comments people leave, the bigger the database shall get. E-mails, in particular ones which have attachments, also need some disk space in the web hosting account. The disk space quota that you receive with your shared hosting supplier is the amount of info you could have at any moment, and this contains website files, emails plus databases. Similarly, a home computer has a hard drive and the programs installed on it as well as any docs or music files that you make or download require disk space, which cannot surpass the total capacity of the hard disk.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
To match the processing potential behind all our cloud website hosting packages, we have thought over and applied the very best solution about the disk space - your hosting account is not made using just one server, but using a cluster platform. Consequently, what we have made is a whole group of servers which is dedicated to the file storing only, hence you should never concern yourself with running out of HDD space and having to switch to a new server since your existing one cannot accommodate more data. Whenever more space is needed, we attach extra machines to the cluster, so that the disk space is inexhaustible. Needless to say, all of our shared hosting
are meant to be employed for sites, not for a repository of large files. We also have separate machines for all of the databases and the emails.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With all of our semi-dedicated server
plans, the hard disk storage characteristic is unlimited, so you'll be able to direct your attention to building your sites the way they should be and not be concerned about hitting a limit. Unlike numerous hosting suppliers that set up your accounts on one server, we employ an in-house built cloud platform, that enables us to provide truly unrestricted hard disk space for every single account. With just a single machine, there's a restricted number of hard drives which can be used, not mentioning that the most popular hosting Control Panels are not designed to work with more than one server at the same time. Our system, however, functions with clusters of servers for the web site databases, files and emails, and our in-house Hepsia Control Panel was made to work with it. We can easily add as many servers to any of the clusters as needed at any time, so that the disk space is virtually unlimited.
Disk Space in VPS Web Hosting
Our virtual private servers
come with disk space allocations proportional to the processing power you will get with every single plan. By using a higher plan, for example, it is more likely that you'll host a variety of domain names or just a single big website, so your hard disk storage grows as you upgrade the package. When you pick our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all of the domains will share the storage space, while if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you're able to generate independent hosting accounts and allocate a limited volume of the total VPS space for every individual domain. You can even share out hdd storage from one domain to another when required. If you acquire a certain VPS package and then you want more storage in the future, you can update to a greater plan with no more than a few mouse-clicks from your billing area. The additional system resources will be placed in your current plan with no server downtime or content migration.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
have multiple hard disk drives so as to suit the computing power that you will get, therefore you won't ever have to be worried about running out of disk storage. The hard drives can be used in RAID, which means that a drive can be used as a copy of another drive to guarantee that your info will always be secured, or you can use it separately for even greater complete storage space. Many hundreds of gigabytes of hdd storage will be at your disposal all the time, therefore you will be able to run huge web sites, upload huge files or even back up your own archive. Due to the fact that a dedicated server is definitely the most powerful kind of hosting, you can upload/download files with very quick speeds. When necessary, we also provide you with the option to add more HDDs and make use of even more storage for your data. We provide 3 hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - when you use Hepsia, all domain names will share the entire server space and will be managed in one place, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin you will have the possibility to set up separate website hosting accounts with certain disk space allocations for each domain hosted on your server.
