Every time you upload information on a web hosting server, it will take some storage space on the hdd dependent on its overall size. In the event that you operate a script-driven internet site which stores its info in a database, it will need more disk space, the more people work with it. For example, in case you have a message board, the greater amount of comments people write, the larger the database shall get. E-mail messages, especially ones which have attachments, also need some space in the site hosting account. The hard disk space quota you will get with each hosting provider is the overall amount of information you could have at any moment, it includes website files, e-mail messages and databases. Similarly, a personal computer has a hard disk drive and the computer programs installed on it in addition to all the docs and / or music files that you generate or download require some storage, which can't surpass the total capacity of the hard disk drive.
Disk Space in Hosting
In order to suit the processing power behind our cloud website hosting packages, we've considered and implemented the perfect system for the disk space - your hosting account is not made using a single server, but on a cluster system. Consequently, what we have assembled is a whole group of servers that is dedicated to the file storage only, so you should never worry about running out of HDD space and having to switch to an alternative server since your current one can't accommodate more data. Whenever extra space is required, we just attach more machines to the cluster, so the disk space is virtually inexhaustible. Of course, all of our Linux hosting packages are meant to be used for websites, not for a collection of big files. We also have separate machines for your databases as well as the e-mail messages.
