The disk space function displays the overall amount of info that you're able to have on a web hosting server at any given time. With a personal computer, for example, this would be the size of one hard drive or the overall capacity of all the hard disks in case that the computer has more than 1. The same way that the space on a personal computer is shared between installed applications, documents, music and so on, the server disk space is divided between website files, databases and email messages. Every single file, folder or email message takes some storage space on the server, therefore you should take into consideration quite a few factors, not only the size of the files which you upload. For example, getting sizable email attachments or running a script-driven website where the user-generated information is kept in a database will also affect the space you use.
Disk Space in Web Hosting
We've designed our web hosting with the idea that the hard disk storage will not be a problem for your websites. While many web hosting suppliers create accounts using one server, and in fact, the most common Control Panels are designed to run solely on this kind of platform, we've used a completely different approach. We have groups of servers that control every single aspect of the website hosting service, which means that your files will be stored on one cluster, your emails on another one,the databases on a third one, and so on. Through this cloud platform we accomplish a couple of things - the hdd space is actually endless because we can install as many servers and hard drives to our clusters as required, and we increase the effectiveness of each machine since just one kind of processes will operate on it. This custom-built setup will allow you to enhance your web sites as you see fit without having to worry about not having enough disk space.
