The disk space function displays the total amount of info that you are able to have on a shared website hosting server at any given time. With a desktop computer, for example, this is the overall size of one hard disk drive or the full capacity of all the hard drives in the event that your PC has more than just a single one. Exactly as your space on a PC is shared between installed software programs, documents, your music etc, the server hard disk space is shared between website files, databases and emails. Each file, folder and email message takes some storage space on the server, and that means you should consider various factors, not just the size of the files that you will upload. For example, getting larger e-mail attachments or using a script-driven website where the user-generated information is saved in a database will also affect the hdd space you use.

Disk Space in Shared Website Hosting

All of our shared website hosting packages were developed with the idea that not enough disk space can't be a thing that will limit the development of your websites. That's why we've taken a technique which is not the same as the one that most web hosting companies apply - rather than making all of the accounts using a singlle server and eventually running out of hard disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform where the storage is handled by a large collection of servers. Thus, we're able to add more machines in case they're needed or more hard disk drives, in order to provide more disk space for all the files of our users. Individual clusters take care of your e-mails as well as the databases, therefore not only are you able to increase the size of your web sites without having to worry about space, but also all the servers will function better and faster as each and every service does have its space for storage and a single server doesn't handle various kinds of files.
