The disk space function shows the overall volume of information that you are able to have on a cloud hosting server at a time. With a home PC, for instance, this would be the size of one hdd or the full size of all of the hard disks in the event that the PC has more than a single one. The same way that the space on a personal computer is shared between installed computer software, docs, music files etcetera, the server hard disk space is normally divided between website files, databases and emails. Each file, folder and email message uses a little space on your server, therefore you should take into account multiple factors, not just the size of the files which you upload. For instance, getting large email attachments or running a script-driven site in which the user-generated information is kept in a database also affects the hdd space you are using.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
To match the processing potential behind all our cloud website hosting plans, we have taken into consideration and implemented the most effective option about the disk space - your account is not created using just one server, but using a cluster platform. Due to this fact, what we have made is a whole group of servers which is focused on the file storing only, hence you should never worry about running out of HDD space and having to migrate to another server as your present one can not accommodate more data. When extra space is necessary, we just add more machines to the cluster, so that the hard disk space is inexhaustible. Still, all our cloud hosting plans were made to be used for web sites, not for an archive of big files. We have separate machines for all the databases and the e-mail messages.
