What's disk space? What is its place inside the Internet hosting world?
The disk space function displays the full volume of information that you could have on your cloud hosting server at a time. With a home PC, for example, this is the size of your hdd or the total capacity of all of the hard disks in case that your PC has more than one. Exactly as your space on a home machine is shared between installed software, docs, your music and the like, the server hard disk space is shared between site files, databases and emails. Every single file, folder and email requires some space on your server, which means you should consider plenty of factors, not just the size of the files which you upload. For instance, getting large e-mail attachments or having a script-driven website in which the user-generated content is stored in a database may also affect the space you use.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
To match the processing performance behind all our cloud web hosting packages, we have taken into consideration and employed the most effective option about the disk space - your account is not created using just one server, but on a cluster platform. Because of this, what we've assembled is a whole cluster of servers that is dedicated to the file storage only, hence you should never worry about running out of hard drive space and having to move to an additional server as your existing one cannot accommodate more information. Any time extra space is necessary, we attach more machines to our cluster, so that the hard drive space is virtually inexhaustible. Of course, all our Linux cloud hosting
are designed to be used for websites, not for a database of big files. We have different machines for your databases and the e-mails.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
packages have "disk space" as a feature only to stress that it's completely unrestricted. We're able to achieve that through the use of a modern, custom-made cloud hosting system, where your files, emails and databases are kept on different clusters of servers. We will add extra HDDs or whole servers to any of the clusters and whenever necessary, and furthermore our web hosting Control Panel is designed to work with this type of platform. In contrast, the vast majority of Control Panels on the web hosting market can work only on one server, and irrespective of what various providers promote, they actually make a multitude of accounts on a single machine. Using a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you'll never need to worry about disk space limits and you are able to focus on developing your websites.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
The disk storage that we supply with our VPS servers
differs depending on the plan that you select at the time you register. With a more powerful server, you are able to conveniently run a number of web sites, which means more content, which means that the superior the VPS package, the more hard drive space you will have available. Shifting from one plan to another one takes just a few clicks and it won't involve any service interruption. Your web site files, databases and emails will share the the whole amount of space your server comes with, still if you prefer to have fixed quotas, you're able to choose cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel during your ordering process. Either of the tools will enable you to set up website hosting accounts with restricted hard disk storage and when required, even to share out space from one account to another. When using the third option that you'll find on the order page, the Hepsia Control Panel, all domains will share the storage space.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
Selecting dedicated service
you'll get all the storage space that you may need for your sites, databases, emails and applications. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage space will be accessible and not shared with anybody else, hence you're able to upload all of the data you may need - website files, personal or company archive backup copies, and so on. You'll get at least two hard disk drives that work in RAID, so that one of the drives will mirror the other one in real time in order to make sure that all your valuable content is always backed up. If you like, you'll be able to use the HDDs independently and take advantage of the whole storage space the way you see fit. When needed, it is possible to get additional hard drives added to the server and enjoy even additional storage space. You'll have the option to create hosting accounts with pre-set disk space quotas if you get your server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the website hosting Control Panel. With Hepsia, which is your third Control Panel choice on the order page, all of the domains hosted on your server will share the HDD space and they'll be managed via a single account. In either case, our dedicated plans will satisfy all of your demands whatever the kind of website you need to host.
