The disk space function displays the full volume of data that you are able to have on your shared web hosting server at one time. With a desktop computer, for example, this would be the overall size of one hard disk or the total volume of all of the hard drives in case that the PC has more than a single one. The same way that the space on a personal computer is shared between installed software, documents, your music and so on, the server storage space is usually divided between website files, databases and emails. Every file, folder or email message takes some space on your server, therefore you should take into consideration a lot of factors, not just the size of the files that you will upload. For instance, receiving large e-mail attachments or running a script-driven site in which the user-generated information is stored in a database may also affect the space you're using.
Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting
Using our shared web hosting packages, you'll never worry about hard drive storage. While most providers set up accounts using just a single server and sooner or later all the server hdd space is being used, we've employed a cloud web hosting platform in which the files, e-mail messages as well as the databases are taken care of by distinct groups of servers. In this way, each and every machine functions better as only one kind of processes is working on it, plus the disk storage is practically unrestricted considering that we will always add additional servers or hard disk drives to the cluster, depending on whether we need more processing power or perhaps more space. You'll never be in a position where you are not able to upload more files as there's no free hard disk space on the server, that is an issue you may experience with various providers. When you use our hosting services, you can rest assured that lack of space won't ever be a holdback for the development of your sites.
