What exactly is disk space? What is its place inside the Internet hosting world?
The term "disk space" is sometimes identified as "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these words refer to the exact same thing - the volume of information that you can upload to a cloud web hosting account. The total size of everything you have is calculated by accumulating the space consumed by all of the content within your account, the most apparent being the files you upload. Two more things are commonly ignored by the majority of users, though - e-mails and databases. Sizeable attachments and databases of large script-driven sites can often use a lot of storage space too. In order to employ a more common analogy, the disk space of your PC is used not only by files you download, but additionally by documents you generate as well as software programs you install. In a similar way, a number of things are counted towards the disk space your data uses on a website hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Cloud Web Hosting
All our cloud web hosting
packages were developed with the idea that lack of hard disk space cannot be something that will prevent the development of your sites. That's the reason why we've taken a technique which is more advanced than the one that most hosting suppliers use - instead of generating all of the accounts on a single server and subsequently not having enough hard disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is taken care of by a large group of servers. Because of this, we can always add more machines when they're necessary or more hard disks, to offer you more disk space for all of the files of our customers. Individual clusters manage the e-mails and your databases, as a result not only will you be able to develop your web sites without having to worry about space, but also the servers will perform better and faster considering the fact that every single service features its own space for storage and one server doesn't handle various types of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With all our semi-dedicated server
packages, the hdd capacity characteristic is unlimited, so you can concentrate on creating your sites the way you'd like them to be and never worry about getting to a limit. Unlike countless hosting providers that generate accounts using one server, we employ a custom cloud platform, that allows us to supply truly limitless hard disk storage for each and every account. With just a single machine, there are only so many HDDs that you can use, not mentioning that the most common hosting Control Panels are not made to work with numerous servers at the same time. Our platform, however, includes clusters of servers for the website emails, databases and files, plus our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel was made to work with it. We can install as many servers to all of the clusters as required at any given time, so the hard disk space is practically unlimited.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
The HDD storage that we provide with our VPS servers
varies according to the plan that you choose at the time you sign up. Having a more powerful server, you'll be able to easily manage various web sites, that means extra content, thus the higher the VPS plan, the more hdd storage you'll have available. Shifting from one plan to another one requires just a couple of clicks and it will not involve any kind of service interruption. Your website databases, files and emails will share the the entire amount of space the server has, still if you'd rather to use fixed quotas, you can choose cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel throughout the ordering process. Both instruments will enable you to create web hosting accounts with limited disk storage and when required, even to share out space from one account to another. When using the third option that you can find on the order page, the Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names will share the storage.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Because of the disk space that we supply with our dedicated servers
, we warrant that you'll be able to run every website irrespective of its capacity. You'll receive at least 500 GB storage space, that you're able to employ the way you see fit - even for personal file storage. By default, you'll get 2 hard disk drives, which can be employed independently, so as to use their total storage space, or they can be used in RAID so that one will mirror the other in real time to warrant that you'll not waste valuable information in the event of a hardware failure. We also give you the option to include more hard disks and increase the overall hard disk space available even further. This allows you to build a file or image storage portal without a problem if you'd like. When using the DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels that we provide, you are able to set up a separate account for every single domain name that you host on your server and define an allowance for the space it'll be allowed to use. When you go for the third solution, our in-house Hepsia Control Panel, all of the domain names will be operated from a single and they will share the total server disk space.
