The term "disk space" is sometimes called "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these words mean the exact same thing - the volume of information that you are able to upload to a web hosting account. The full size of everything you have is determined by accumulating the storage space taken by the content within your account, the most obvious being the files you upload. Two other things are commonly disregarded by the majority of people, though - e-mails as well as databases. Large attachments and databases of huge script-driven websites will often take a lot of disk space too. To employ a more familiar analogy, the hdd space of your home computer is used not just by files that you download, but also by documents you make together with programs you add. In the same way, a number of things are counted in the hard disk space your data takes on a website hosting server, in addition to the uploads.

Disk Space in Web Hosting

All of our web hosting packages were developed with the concept that limited disk space cannot be something that will reduce the development of your websites. That's why we've taken a technique which is not the same as the one that most website hosting companies apply - instead of just creating countless accounts using one server and eventually not having enough disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform where the storage is taken care of by a large cluster of servers. Thus, we can easily install more machines whenever they're necessary and more HDDs, in order to offer you more disk space for all the files of our users. Separate clusters manage your e-mail messages and your databases, therefore not only is it possible to expand your web sites not worrying about space, but also all the servers will operate better and faster because every service has its own space and an individual server doesn't handle different types of files.

Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers

Considering that all our semi-dedicated server packages are rather powerful, we've made the decision not to limit the disk space characteristic when we have designed them. Our idea is that if you buy a powerful plan, it's very likely that you've got plenty of web information, that's why every semi-dedicated server package comes with limitless hard disk space, which will help you focus on improving your web sites without be concerned whether you will suit a quota. Your web hosting account will be set up on a cloud website hosting platform where the emails, files and databases have their individual groups of servers, therefore not only will the machines perform more efficiently since just one type of system processes will run on them, but in addition you will never have to worry about the hard disk space as we are able to attach as many servers or hard disks to each and every cluster as required.

Disk Space in VPS Servers

All our VPS servers feature disk space quotas proportional to the processing power that you will get with every plan. Employing a higher package, for example, the chances are greater you will host a large number of domain names or a single large website, that is why the hard disk storage grows as you upgrade your package. If you employ our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all of the domains will share the storage, while if you employ cPanel or DirectAdmin, you can set up independent web hosting accounts and set a pre-defined volume of the entire VPS space for each specific domain name. You will even be able to allot hard disk space from one domain to another if needed. When you obtain a certain VPS package and then you need more space at some point, you are able to update to a higher-end plan with just a few clicks from your billing section. The extra system resources will be added to your existing plan without any server downtime or content migration.

Disk Space in Dedicated Servers

Because of the hdd space that we offer with our Linux dedicated servers, we warrant that you'll be able to operate every web site irrespective of its size. You will get at least 500 GB storage, which you can take advantage of as you see fit - even for personal file storage. As standard, you'll get 2 hard drives, which can be used separately, so as to take advantage of their entire capacity, or they can be used in RAID and one will be a copy the other one in real time to ensure that you'll not lose valuable information in case of a hardware malfunction. You're also given the option to include extra HDDs and upgrade the total HDD space available even further. This allows you to build a file or image storage portal without any problems if you'd like. With the cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels that we offer, you can make a separate account for each website that you host on the server and define an allowance for the storage space it'll be allowed to use. If you go for the third alternative, our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel, all the domain names will be managed in a single and they will share the full server disk space.
