What exactly is disk space? What is its place in the web hosting world?
The disk space function displays the full amount of data that you can have on the shared website hosting server at any time. With a desktop computer, for example, this is the size of one hard disk or the overall size of all of the hard drives in case that the computer has more than one. The same way that your space on a personal computer is divided between installed software, documents, music files and so on, the server storage space is normally shared between internet site files, databases and emails. Every file, folder and e-mail will take a little storage space on your server, and that means you should take into consideration multiple factors, not only the size of the files that you will upload. For instance, getting larger e-mail attachments or running a script-driven internet site where the user-generated content is kept in a database may also affect the hdd space you use.
Disk Space in Shared Website Hosting
To match the processing performance behind all of our cloud website hosting plans, we've considered and included the perfect solution about the disk space - your hosting account will not be generated using just one server, but using a cluster system. Therefore, what we've created is a whole group of servers that is centered on the file storing only, hence you should never worry about running out of space and having to move to another server since your existing one is unable to accommodate more data. Whenever an additional space is needed, all we need to do is add more machines to our cluster, so that the hard drive space is inexhaustible. Of course, all of our shared website hosting plans
are designed to be employed for web sites, not for a repository of large files. We also have different machines for all of the databases as well as the email messages.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With all of our semi-dedicated server
packages, the disk space characteristic is not limited, so you'll be able to center on building your web sites the way you like and not worry about reaching a restriction. Unlike lots of hosting suppliers that generate accounts using one server, we use an in-house built cloud platform, that enables us to supply truly unlimited hard disk space for every single account. With just a single machine, there're only so many hard drives that you can use, not mentioning that the most popular hosting Control Panels weren't meant to function with numerous servers concurrently. Our platform, however, features clusters of servers for the website emails, databases and files, and our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel was created to work with it. We can easily add as many servers to all of the clusters as needed any time, so the disk space is practically inexhaustible.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
All our VPS servers
come with disk space allocations proportionate to the processing power you will get with each package. Getting a greater plan, for instance, it is more likely that you'll host various domain names or just a single huge website, therefore the hdd storage increases as you upgrade the plan. If you employ our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all of the domains will share the space, while if you select DirectAdmin or cPanel, you will be able to make independent website hosting accounts and preset a pre-defined volume of the full VPS storage space for every specific domain. You will even be able to allot hard disk space from one domain to another when necessary. When you order a certain VPS package and you require extra storage afterwards, you can update to a higher-end plan with just a few mouse-clicks from your billing section. The additional resources will be added to your existing plan with no server downtime or content migration.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
The minimum amount of hard disk storage which you can get when you use our dedicated servers is 500 gigabytes. You'll have 2 hard drives, 250 GB each, and it will be up to you exactly how you will allot this storage. You can easily have the hard disks in RAID, so that all of your information will always be safe as one drive will function as a real-time mirror of the second one, or you're able to make them function separately, in order to use the total storing volume that will be at your disposal. The storage space of all our Linux dedicated web hosting plans
is enough for everything - large Internet stores, file depository portal, personal archive copy, and a lot more. We will never hold back your sites with regard to the space they can use. Once that they begin increasing, we provide you with the option to add additional HDDs to your present server if needed. When you acquire the server with DirectAdmin or cPanel for the hosting Control Panel, you will also be able to create a separate account for each hosted domain and set some hdd space quota for it. Using Hepsia all domain names will be hosted in one place and they will share the overall server storage space.
