The term "disk space" is oftentimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these terms mean the same thing - the volume of info that you are able to upload to a shared hosting account. The total size of the things you have is estimated by accumulating the space taken by all the content within your account, the most obvious being the data files you upload. Two other things are often ignored by various people, though - emails and databases. Sizable attachments or databases of big script-driven websites will often use a lot of storage space too. In order to employ a more common analogy, the hard disk space of your home computer is used not only by files that you download, but also by docs you make as well as software programs you install. In a similar way, various things are counted in the hdd space that your info takes on a web hosting server, not only the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
In order to suit the processing potential behind all our cloud website hosting plans, we have considered and employed the perfect alternative related to disk space - your hosting account is not created on a single server, but on a cluster platform. As a result, what we have developed is an entire cluster of servers which is focused on the file storage only, so that you should never be worried about not having enough hard disk space and having to move to another server because your existing one is unable to accommodate more data. Whenever more space is necessary, we just add more machines to the cluster, so that the hard disk space is unlimited. Still, all of our shared hosting are meant to be employed for websites, not for an archive of large files. We also have different machines for the databases as well as the email messages.
