What is disk space? What is its place in the web hosting world?
The term "disk space" is sometimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words refer to the same thing - the amount of data that you can upload to a cloud website hosting account. The total size of what you have is calculated by accumulating the storage space consumed by the overall content within the account, the most apparent being the types of files that you upload. Two other things are commonly forgotten by the majority of people, though - email messages as well as databases. Larger attachments or databases of large script-driven sites can often take a lot of disk space too. To use a more familiar analogy, the hard drive space of your personal computer is used not only by files you download, but additionally by documents you create along with software programs you install. Similarly, many things are counted in the hard disk space your content uses on a website hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Cloud Website Hosting
We have designed our Linux cloud website hosting
with the concept that the disk storage will not be a problem for your websites. While many web hosting companies make accounts on a single server, and as a matter of fact, the most popular Control Panels are made to function solely on this type of platform, we've used a different solution. We have groups of servers that handle every single element of the website hosting service, which means that your files are stored on a single cluster, your emails on a different one,your databases using a third one, etc. Using this cloud platform we accomplish a couple of things - the hard disk space is actually limitless because we're able add as many servers and hard drives to our clusters as needed, and we improve the performance of each machine since just one kind of system processes will run on it. This custom-made setup will help you enlarge your websites as much as you'd like without having to worry about running out of hdd storage.
Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you obtain a semi-dedicated server
plan from us, you do not have to worry about the storage space that you're able to use for the basic reason that the characteristic is limitless. Unlike a number of other web hosting suppliers who promise an identical service, yet create accounts on just a single machine where only so much hard drives can be connected, we take advantage of an innovative cloud system that employs clusters of servers. Your files will be located on one cluster, your emails on a different one, your databases on a third one and so on. This type of system offers 2 significant advantages - first, the disk space will never finish because we are able to install more servers to every cluster that requires them, and second, the servers will work much more smoothly since they'll control only one kind of system processes. A semi-dedicated server plan offers you the option to enhance your websites as much as you need.
Disk Space in VPS Hosting
The disk space that we supply with our virtual private servers
ranges depending on the plan that you select when you sign up. Having a more powerful server, you are able to easily manage several web sites, meaning extra content, so the higher the VPS package, the more hard drive space you will have available. Shifting from one plan to another one requires a couple of clicks and it doesn't involve any kind of service disruption. Your web site databases, files and emails will share the overall amount of space your server contains, still if you prefer to get preset allocations, you can pick cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel during your ordering process. Both tools will allow you to set up website hosting accounts with restricted disk space and if needed, even to allocate space from one existing account to a different one. Using the third solution that you can find on the order page, our Hepsia Control Panel, all domains will share the space.
Disk Space in Dedicated Web Hosting
With our Linux dedicated web hosting
you'll get all of the hdd space that you may need for your sites, databases, email messages and applications. Hundreds of gigabytes of storage space will be at your disposal and not shared with others, therefore you will be able to upload all of the info you'd like - web site files, personal or company archive backup copies, etc. You'll get a minimum of two hard disk drives that work in RAID, so that one drive will mirror the other one in real time in order to guarantee that all your valuable info is always backed up. If you prefer, you can use the disks individually and employ the entire storage space in any way you see fit. If needed, you can also get additional hard disks connected to your server to get even greater disk space. You will have the option to set up web hosting accounts with pre-set hdd storage quotas when you get the server with cPanel or DirectAdmin for the hosting Control Panel. Selecting Hepsia, which is the third Control Panel option on the order page, all domains hosted on the server will share the HDD storage space and they'll be handled through a single account. In either case, our dedicated packages will satisfy all your needs whatever the type of site you would like to host.
