The disk space function displays the full capacity of info that you'll be able to have on your cloud hosting server at one time. With a personal computer, for instance, this is the total size of one hard disk or the overall size of all hard disk drives in case that the computer has more than a single one. The same way that the space on a personal computer is divided between installed programs, docs, your music etc, the server disk space is ordinarily divided between site files, databases and emails. Every file, folder or email message uses some space on the server, therefore you should consider a bunch of factors, not just the size of the files you upload. To give an example, getting big email attachments or having a script-driven website in which the user-generated content is stored in a database also affects the hdd space you're using.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
We have created our cloud plans with the idea that the disk space should not be a setback for your websites. While many hosting suppliers produce accounts using a single server, and in fact, the most widespread Control Panels were made to function solely on this kind of platform, we've used a different approach. We have clusters of servers that handle each element of the hosting service, so your files will be stored on a single cluster, your email on another,your databases on a third one, etc. Through this cloud platform we accomplish a couple of things - the disk space is virtually endless considering that we are able to attach as many servers and hard disk drives to the clusters as needed, and we boost the performance of every machine because just a single type of system processes will operate on it. This custom-made setup will enable you to expand your websites as much as you'd like without having to worry about not having enough hdd storage.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
All our VPS servers have disk space allocations proportionate to the processing power that you get with every single package. Employing a greater package, for example, it is more likely that you will host numerous domains or just a single huge web site, therefore the hdd space increases as you upgrade the plan. If you use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all of the domain names will share the space, and if you employ DirectAdmin or cPanel, you'll be able to make distinct web hosting accounts and set a limited volume of the entire VPS space for each specific domain name. You can even reallocate hard disk space from one domain to another if needed. If you start with a certain VPS package and you require additional storage afterwards, you'll be able to upgrade to a greater plan with no more than a couple of mouse-clicks in your billing section. The added resources will be added to your present plan without any downtime or content migration.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Selecting dedicated web hosting plans you'll get all the hdd space that you may need for your websites, databases, emails and apps. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage space will be at your disposal and not shared with others, which means that you're able to upload all of the data you will need - site files, personal or company archive backups, and many more. You will get a minimum of 2 hard disk drives that work well in RAID, so that one of the drives will mirror the other in real time in order to ensure that all your important content is always protected. If you like, you can use the disks independent of each other and take advantage of the full space the way you see fit. When needed, you'll be able to get extra hard drives attached to your server and have even greater storage space. You'll have the option to create hosting accounts with fixed hdd space allowances when you get the server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel. With Hepsia, which is your third Control Panel option on the order page, all the domain names hosted on your server will share the disk space and they'll be operated via one account. Either way, our dedicated packages will satisfy all of your demands whatever the type of web site you want to host.
