The term "disk space" is oftentimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these words refer to the same thing - the volume of info that you are able to upload to a shared hosting account. The full size of what you have is estimated by accumulating the space consumed by all the content within the account, the most obvious being the types of files you upload. Two other things are generally forgotten by many users, though - e-mails and also databases. Sizeable attachments and databases of huge script-driven websites can often require a lot of disk space too. In order to employ a more familiar analogy, the hard disk space of your PC is used not only by files you download, but also by documents you generate together with programs you install. In a similar way, various things are counted towards the hdd space your info needs on a website hosting server, not only the uploads.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

We have created our Linux shared hosting with the concept that the hdd space should never be a setback for your websites. While many hosting companies set up accounts on a single server, and as a matter of fact, the most popular Control Panels are made to run solely on such a platform, we've taken a completely different solution. We have groups of servers that handle each aspect of the hosting service, to ensure that your files are stored on a single cluster, the emails on another one,your databases using a third one, etc. With this cloud platform we achieve a couple of things - the disk space is actually infinite considering that we can easily link as many servers and hard drives to our clusters as required, and we enhance the performance of each machine since just one kind of processes will run on it. This custom-made setup will allow you to enlarge your websites as much as you'd like without worrying about not having enough hard drive space.
