What exactly is disk space? What is its place as part of the Internet hosting world?
The disk space function shows the overall capacity of info that you'll be able to have on the shared web hosting server at a time. With a home PC, for example, this would be the capacity of one hard disk drive or the total capacity of all the hard disk drives in the event that the PC has more than just a single one. The same way that your space on a personal computer is divided between installed computer programs, docs, music and so on, the server storage space is ordinarily divided between internet site files, databases and emails. Every single file, folder and e-mail requires a little disk space on your server, which means you should consider numerous factors, not only the size of the files that you will upload. To give an example, getting larger email attachments or using a script-driven website in which the user-generated data is stored in a database may also affect the hdd space you're using.
Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting
We have created our Linux shared web hosting services
with the concept that the hdd space will not be a setback for your websites. While many web hosting providers generate accounts using a single server, and as a matter of fact, the most common Control Panels are intended to work solely on this kind of platform, we've applied a different approach. We have clusters of servers that control every single element of the website hosting service, so that your files will be stored on one cluster, your email on a different one,the databases on a third one, etc. Through this cloud platform we accomplish a couple of things - the disk space is actually endless since we can connect as many servers and hard disks to the clusters as required, and we boost the effectiveness of every single machine since only one kind of system processes will operate on it. This custom-built setup will help you develop your sites as much as you'd like without worrying about running out of disk storage.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With all of our semi-dedicated server
packages, the hard disk capacity attribute is not limited, so you can focus on creating your websites the way you'd like them to be and not be worried about getting to a limit. Unlike the majority of hosting suppliers that generate accounts using one server, we take advantage of an in-house made cloud platform, which allows us to supply truly limitless hard disk storage for each and every account. With just a single machine, there's a limited number of hard drives that you can use, not mentioning that most of the hosting Control Panels weren't meant to work with more than one server at the same time. Our system, by contrast, employs clusters of servers for the web site files, emails and databases, plus our in-house Hepsia Control Panel was created to work with it. We are able to install as many servers to any of the clusters as needed at any given time, so that the hard disk space is virtually limitless.
Disk Space in VPS Web Hosting
The HDD storage that we provide with our virtual private servers
is different based on the plan that you choose at the time you register. With a more powerful server, you can effortlessly manage an array of sites, which means additional content, which means that the higher the VPS plan, the more hard disk storage you will have available. Shifting from one plan to another requires just a couple of mouse-clicks and it does not involve any service disruption. Your web site databases, files and emails will share the total amount of space your server contains, yet if you'd like to use preset quotas, you'll be able to select cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel during your ordering process. Both tools will enable you to make hosting accounts with restricted hard disk space and if needed, even to share out space from one existing account to another one. When using the third choice that you can find on the order page, the Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names will share the storage.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All of our dedicated hosting services
include a number of hard disk drives so as to suit the processing power that you'll get, which means that you'll never have to worry about running out of hdd space. The hard drives can be employed in RAID, which means one drive can function as a mirror of another to make sure that all your data will always be protected, or it can be used on its own for even greater overall storage capacity. Hundreds of gigabytes of hard disk storage will be available all of the time, thus you will be able to manage large web sites, upload big files and even duplicate your personal archive. Considering that a dedicated server is the most powerful kind of web hosting, you can upload/download files with very quick speeds. When required, we also provide you with the option to add more drives and make use of even further space for your content. We supply three hosting Control Panels with our dedicated servers - using Hepsia, all domain names will share the total server space and they will be operated in a single place, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin you will have the option to make distinct hosting accounts with pre-selected disk space quotas for each domain hosted on your server.
