The disk space feature shows the overall amount of data that you're able to have on a shared hosting server at any time. With a personal computer, for instance, this is the capacity of a single hard disk or the overall volume of all hard disks in case that the computer has more than a single one. The same way that your space on a personal computer is shared between installed computer programs, documents, music files etc, the server disk space is usually divided between website files, databases and emails. Every single file, folder and e-mail will take some storage space on the server, so you should consider numerous factors, not only the size of the files that you upload. For example, having sizeable email attachments or running a script-driven internet site where the user-generated info is kept in a database will also affect the space you are using.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

All of our shared hosting packages were made with the notion that not enough disk space cannot be something that can stop the growth of your web sites. That is why we have used an approach which is different from the one that most hosting suppliers apply - rather than making a variety of accounts on a single server and subsequently not having enough disk space, we employ a cloud hosting platform in which the storage space is taken care of by a whole group of servers. That's why, we can add more machines when they're needed and / or more hard disk drives, so as to provide you with additional disk space for all of the files of our valued clients. Separate clusters take care of your e-mails and the databases, consequently not only are you able to expand your web sites not worrying about hard drive space, but also the servers will operate faster and better due to the fact that each service has its own storage space and a single server doesn't handle different kinds of files.

Disk Space in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you do not need to concern yourself with the hdd space that you can use for the basic reason that this feature is unrestricted. Unlike a number of other website hosting suppliers who promise a similar service, yet create accounts on a single machine where quite a limited number of hard drives can be connected, we take advantage of an innovative cloud system which uses clusters of servers. All of your files will be kept on a single cluster, your emails on another, the databases on a third one and so on. This system offers at least two noteworthy advantages - first, the hard disk space will not ever finish because we'll add more servers to every cluster that requires them, and second, the servers will work much more smoothly for they'll handle just a single kind of processes. A semi-dedicated server package will give you the flexibility to improve your websites as much as you want.
