The disk space feature displays the total capacity of information that you're able to have on the shared hosting server at any time. With a personal computer, for instance, this would be the overall size of a single hard disk or the overall capacity of all hard disks in the event that the computer has more than just a single one. Exactly as the space on a home machine is divided between installed software, documents, music and so on, the server hard disk space is normally divided between site files, databases and emails. Each file, folder or e-mail will take some space on the server, so you should take into account a variety of factors, not only the size of the files you upload. For example, having larger email attachments or having a script-driven internet site in which the user-generated content is stored in a database also affects the space you're using.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

All of our shared hosting plans were designed with the concept that too little hard disk space cannot be a thing that can prevent the growth of your web sites. That's why we've used an approach which is distinct from the one that most website hosting providers use - instead of just creating countless accounts using a singlle server and eventually running out of disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is handled by a whole collection of servers. In this way, we are able to connect more machines when they are needed and more hard disk drives, to be able to offer extra disk space for the files of our users. Different clusters take care of the e-mails as well as your databases, consequently not only can you expand your sites without worrying about hdd space, but also the servers will function faster and better considering the fact that every single service features its own storage space and an individual server doesn't handle different types of files.
