The term "disk space" may also be called "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these words mean the exact same thing - the volume of data that you'll be able to upload to a website hosting account. The full size of everything you have is determined by accumulating the storage space taken by the content in your account, the most obvious being the types of files that you upload. Two more things can often be ignored by many users, though - email messages as well as databases. Sizeable attachments and databases of large script-driven websites can often require a lot of storage space as well. In order to employ a more familiar analogy, the hard disk space of your computer is taken not only by files you download, but also by docs you generate and programs you install. Likewise, various things are counted in the hard disk space that your information needs on a web hosting server, not only the uploads.
Disk Space in Website Hosting
To suit the processing power behind our cloud web hosting packages, we've thought over and integrated the perfect system for the disk space - your hosting account is not created using a single server, but on a cluster system. Because of this, what we have assembled is a whole group of servers which is centered on the file storing only, so that you should never concern yourself with running out of hard drive space and having to switch to a new server since your existing one can't accommodate more information. Any time an additional space is needed, we add more machines to the cluster, so the storage space is virtually inexhaustible. Still, all our Linux website hosting are meant to be employed for sites, not for a repository of big files. We also have separate machines for all the databases as well as the e-mail messages.
