The disk space function displays the full amount of information that you'll be able to have on the cloud web hosting server at any given time. With a home PC, for example, this would be the total size of one hdd or the full size of all of the hard drives in the event that your PC has more than one. Exactly as your space on a personal computer is shared between installed computer programs, docs, your music and the like, the server disk space is shared between website files, databases and emails. Each file, folder or email message requires a little space on the server, so you should take into consideration a lot of factors, not just the size of the files that you upload. For example, getting sizable e-mail attachments or running a script-driven internet site where the user-generated info is kept in a database will also affect the space you're using.

Disk Space in Cloud Web Hosting

All our cloud web hosting packages were created with the notion that limited disk space should not be something that can prevent the development of your sites. For this reason we've used an approach which is different from the one that most website hosting providers take - rather than creating all of the accounts using one server and eventually running out of hard disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is taken care of by a whole cluster of servers. As a result, we're able to add more machines when they're required or more hard drives, so as to provide more disk space for the files of our customers. Different clusters take care of the emails as well as the databases, which means that not only will you be able to expand your web sites without having to worry about hard drive space, but also all of the servers will perform faster and better as every service does have its storage space and one server doesn't handle different types of files.
