What is disk space? What is its place as part of the web hosting world?
The term "disk space" is sometimes identified as "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these words mean the same thing - the volume of data that you can upload to a shared hosting account. The overall size of what you have is determined by accumulating the space taken by the content in your account, the most apparent being the data files you upload. Two more things are sometimes overlooked by the majority of people, though - email messages as well as databases. Larger attachments and databases of larger script-driven sites can often use a lot of disk space as well. To employ a more common analogy, the disk space of your computer system is taken not only by files that you download, but additionally by docs you write and programs you install. In the same way, many things are counted towards the hard disk space your information employs on a website hosting server, not only the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
We have created our shared plans
with the notion that the disk storage should never be a setback for your websites. While many website hosting suppliers set up accounts on a single server, and as a matter of fact, the most famous Control Panels were made to run solely on this kind of platform, we've used a different strategy. We have clusters of servers that control every element of the hosting service, so that your files will be stored on a single cluster, the emails on another one,the databases on a third one, and so on. With this cloud platform we achieve two things - the hdd space is virtually inexhaustible since we're able connect as many servers and hard disks to our clusters as required, and we increase the efficiency of every machine because just a single type of processes will operate on it. This tailor-made setup will enable you to extend your websites as much as you'd like without having to worry about running out of hdd storage.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our semi-dedicated server
plans, the disk capacity feature is unrestricted, so you can focus on creating your websites the way they should be and not be worried about hitting some limit. Unlike many hosting suppliers that make accounts on just a single server, we employ an in-house built cloud platform, that enables us to offer truly unlimited hard disk storage for every single account. With a single machine, there's a limited number of HDDs that can be used, not mentioning that the most common hosting Control Panels are simply not made to function with multiple servers at the same time. Our platform, on the other hand, includes clusters of servers for the website emails, databases and files, and our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel was made to work with it. We are able to attach as many servers to any of the clusters as required at any time, so the hard disk space is virtually unlimited.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
All of our VPS web hosting plans
feature a large amount of disk storage so as to meet all of your needs but not limit the development of your sites. Naturally, if you would like to operate just a single resource-demanding web site or numerous smaller-sized sites, you will need more power as a whole, which means that the superior the VPS package, the more disk space you'll get. Shifting between our packages is very simple and the further space will be added to your account without moving any data or stopping/restarting the server, so when you reach the space restriction of your present package, you are able to upgrade with a few mouse-clicks from your billing panel. As we supply several hosting Control Panels for our virtual private servers, you are given two options for the disk space management - using Hepsia, all web sites share the overall server space, while when you use cPanel and DirectAdmin you are able to create individual accounts for your domain names and create an allocation for every account.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated web hosting plans
come with a number of hard disk drives to suit the computing power you'll get, so that you won't ever have to be worried about not having enough hdd storage. The hard drives can operate in RAID, meaning that one drive can function as a mirror of another to make sure that all your info will always be backed up, alternatively you can use it individually for even greater complete storage space. Many hundreds of gigabytes of disk space will be available all of the time, so you'll be able to manage large web sites, upload large files and back up your individual archive. Since a dedicated server is the most powerful type of hosting, you'll be able to upload/download files with extremely fast speeds. When required, we also provide the option to add more hard drives and utilize even more storage for your content. We offer three hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - when you use Hepsia, all domain names will share the overall server space and will be operated in one place, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin you'll have the alternative to create separate hosting accounts with pre-defined disk space allocations for every domain name hosted on the server.
