The term "disk space" is sometimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these terms refer to exactly the same thing - the amount of data that you can upload to a shared hosting account. The overall size of everything you have is estimated by accumulating the storage space used by the entire content within your account, the most obvious being the data files that you upload. Two other things are generally disregarded by a lot of users, though - emails and databases. Larger attachments and databases of huge script-driven sites can sometimes require a lot of storage space too. To use a more familiar analogy, the disk space of your laptop or computer is used not just by files that you download, but also by docs you generate and programs you install. In the same way, many things are counted towards the hdd space your data employs on a web hosting server, in addition to the uploads.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

We've designed our Linux shared hosting with the concept that the hard disk storage won't be an issue for your sites. While many web hosting providers make accounts on a single server, and in fact, the most popular Control Panels are designed to function solely on such a platform, we've taken a different strategy. We have groups of servers that take care of every single aspect of the hosting service, so that your files are stored on one cluster, your email on a different one,the databases on a third one, etc. On this cloud platform we accomplish a few things - the hard disk space is actually infinite as we can install as many servers and hard disks to the clusters as needed, and we improve the efficiency of each machine as just a single type of system processes will run on it. This custom-built setup will enable you to improve your web sites as you see fit without worrying about not having enough disk space.

Disk Space in Dedicated Web Hosting

Because of the hdd space that we offer with our Linux dedicated web hosting, we warrant that you'll be able to run any type of web site whatever its capacity. You'll receive a minimum of 500 GB storage, that you're able to take advantage of the way you see fit - even for personal file depository. By default, you will get two hard disk drives, which can be used on their own, to take advantage of their overall capacity, or they can be in RAID so that one will be a duplicate the other in real time to warrant that you'll not lose precious info in the event of a hardware breakdown. You'll also be given the opportunity to include additional hard drives and upgrade the overall HDD storage for your use even more. This makes it possible for you to make a file or image storage portal without any problems if you'd like. Thanks to the cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels that we provide, you can set up a separate account for each site that you host on your server and pre-define an allowance for the storage it will use. When you go for the 3rd alternative, our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, all the domain names will be operated in a single and they will share the entire server HDD space.
