Learn more about what disk space is really in the web hosting business.
Each time you upload data on a web hosting server, you will need some storage space on the hard disk drive dependent on its overall size. When you run a script-driven site which stores its info in a database, you will need more space, the more people use it. For instance, in the event that you have a discussion forum, the greater amount of comments people share, the bigger the database gets. E-mails, in particular ones with attachments, also require some disk space in the site hosting account. The hard disk space quota you get with your shared hosting provider is the total amount of data you could have at any moment, and it contains web site files, e-mails as well as databases. Likewise, a home computer has a hard drive and the software programs installed on it and all documents and / or music files that you generate or download require storage, which can't surpass the total capacity of your hard drive.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
We have designed our shared plans
with the notion that the hard disk space shouldn't be a problem for your web sites. While many hosting companies generate accounts on a single server, and in fact, the most popular Control Panels are made to operate solely on this type of platform, we have taken a different solution. We have clusters of servers that take care of every part of the website hosting service, so your files will be stored on a single cluster, your emails on another,the databases using a third one, and so on. Using this cloud platform we accomplish two things - the hdd space is actually infinite because we're able install as many servers and hard drives to the clusters as needed, and we enhance the efficiency of every single machine due to the fact that just one kind of processes will run on it. This tailor-made setup will allow you to improve your websites as much as you'd like without having to worry about running out of hard disk space.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers
come with disk space quotas proportional to the computing power that you will get with each and every package. Using a higher package, for example, it is more likely you'll host a large number of domain names or just a single large site, therefore the disk storage grows as you upgrade your plan. If you use our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all of the domain names will share the storage, while if you choose DirectAdmin or cPanel, you will be able to generate individual hosting accounts and preset a restricted volume of the overall VPS storage space for every individual website. You will even be able to reallocate disk storage from one domain to another if needed. If you purchase a given VPS plan and you want further storage later on, you're able to update to a greater plan with no more than a couple of clicks from your billing section. The additional resources will be included in your existing plan without downtime or content migration.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
With all the disk storage space that we supply with all of our Linux dedicated servers
, we guarantee that you'll be able to manage every site irrespective of its overall size. You'll receive a minimum of 500 GB storage space, that you can take advantage of as you see fit - even for private file depository. As standard, you'll get two separate HDDs, which can be employed on their own, in order to take advantage of their full storage space, or they can be connected in RAID and one will be a duplicate the other in real time to warrant that you'll not miss important data in case of a hardware fail. You're also given the option to put additional hard drives to upgrade the overall hard disk space at your disposal even further. This will allow you to build a file or image depository portal without a problem if you'd like. Using the cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels that we provide, you can easily make a separate account for each domain name that you host on the server and set a quota for the storage space it will be allowed to use. If you choose the 3rd option, our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel, all the domain names will be managed in one place and they'll share the whole server hard disk storage space.
