The term "disk space" is oftentimes called "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these words refer to the exact same thing - the amount of info that you are able to upload to a shared web hosting account. The full size of everything you have is calculated by accumulating the space taken by all of the content in your account, the most obvious being the types of files that you upload. Two more things are generally ignored by the majority of end users, though - email messages and databases. Larger attachments and databases of huge script-driven websites can sometimes require a lot of disk space too. In order to use a more common analogy, the hard drive space of your computer is taken not just by files you download, but additionally by docs you generate along with programs you add. In the same way, many things are counted in the hdd space that your info uses on a website hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting
All our shared web hosting packages were developed with the idea that limited hard disk space can't be something that should limit the progress of your web sites. Because of this we have applied an approach which is distinct from the one that most website hosting suppliers use - instead of just creating a range of accounts using one server and eventually running out of disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is handled by a large cluster of servers. As a result, we can always add more machines whenever they're required or more hard drives, in order to provide you with additional disk space for all the files of our valued clients. Individual clusters take care of the e-mail messages and the databases, therefore not only will you be able to enhance your sites not worrying about hdd space, but also the servers will operate faster and better due to the fact that each and every service does have its storage space and an individual server doesn't handle various kinds of files.
