The term "disk space" is sometimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these terms refer to the same thing - the volume of info that you can upload to a web hosting account. The overall size of what you have is estimated by accumulating the storage space taken by all the content within the account, the most obvious being the files you upload. Two other things are sometimes forgotten by many users, though - e-mail messages and databases. Sizeable attachments or databases of huge script-driven sites can often take a lot of disk space too. To use a more recognizable analogy, the hard drive space of your personal computer is used not only by files you download, but also by documents you make plus software programs you add. In a similar way, a number of things are counted for the hard disk space your information employs on a website hosting server, not just the uploads.
Disk Space in Web Hosting
All our web hosting plans were made with the idea that lack of disk space should not be a thing that will stop the growth of your websites. For this reason we have applied an approach which is more advanced than the one that most hosting providers apply - rather than generating a range of accounts using a singlle server and subsequently not having enough hard disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform where the storage is handled by a whole collection of servers. In this way, we can always install more machines if they're required and / or more HDDs, in order to supply extra disk space for all the files of our valued customers. Separate clusters take care of the e-mails and your databases, which means that not only are you able to increase the size of your websites without having to worry about space, but also all the servers will perform faster and better owing to the fact that every service has its own storage space and one server does not handle different kinds of files.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers
With all our semi-dedicated server packages, the hard disk space characteristic is unlimited, so that you're able to direct your attention to building your websites the way you like and not be worried about hitting some restriction. Unlike the majority of hosting providers that generate your accounts on a single server, we use an in-house built cloud platform, that allows us to offer you truly unlimited hdd space for every single account. With just a single machine, there are only so many hard disks which can be used, not mentioning that the most popular hosting Control Panels are simply not intended to function with a large number of servers concurrently. Our system, by contrast, incorporates clusters of servers for the web site databases, files and emails, plus our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel was made to work with it. We are able to add as many servers to all of the clusters as needed any time, so that the hdd space is virtually unlimited.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
The hard disk storage that we supply with our VPS servers ranges depending on the plan that you pick at the time you sign up. With a more powerful server, you will be able to effortlessly run lots of web sites, that means more content, thus the higher the VPS plan, the more hard disk storage you'll have at your disposal. Switching from one plan to another usually takes just a few mouse-clicks and it doesn't involve any service disruption. Your website files, databases and emails will share the the entire amount of space the server contains, but if you prefer to have fixed quotas, you'll be able to choose cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel during the ordering process. Each of the instruments will allow you to set up web hosting accounts with limited disk storage and when necessary, even to allot space from one existing account to a different one. When using the third option that you'll find on the order page, the Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names will share the space.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
With all the hdd storage that we supply with all of our dedicated service, we guarantee that you'll be able to run any kind of web site whatever its size. You'll get no less than 500 GB storage, which you can employ the way you see fit - even for personal file storage. By default, you will get 2 hard disk drives, which can be employed separately, in order to take advantage of their entire capacity, or they can be in RAID so that one will mirror the other in real time to ensure that you will not waste valuable information in case of a hardware malfunction. You'll also be given the opportunity to add extra hard disks and upgrade the whole HDD space you can use even further. This will allow you to build a file or image depository portal without a problem if you'd like. Thanks to the cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels that we provide, you can create a separate account for each domain name that you host on your server and pre-set a quota for the storage it can use. If you select the third choice, our custom Hepsia Control Panel, all of the domains will be managed in one place and they'll share the whole server HDD space.
