The disk space function displays the overall capacity of information that you are able to have on a shared hosting server at a time. With a home PC, for example, this would be the capacity of one hard drive or the total volume of all the hard drives in case that the PC has more than just a single one. Exactly as your space on a PC is shared between installed computer software, docs, music files and the like, the server hdd space is ordinarily shared between website files, databases and emails. Each file, folder and e-mail will take some disk space on the server, which means you should think about a bunch of factors, not just the size of the files you upload. For example, getting sizeable e-mail attachments or using a script-driven website in which the user-generated info is kept in a database may also affect the space you are using.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
We've created our shared hosting with the concept that the hard disk storage shouldn't be a setback for your websites. While many web hosting suppliers set up accounts using one server, and in fact, the most famous Control Panels are intended to function solely on this type of platform, we've applied an alternative approach. We have groups of servers that control every single element of the hosting service, which means that your files will be stored on one cluster, your email on another,the databases on a third one, and so on. On this cloud platform we accomplish a couple of things - the hard disk space is actually infinite due to the fact that we are able to install as many servers and hard drives to the clusters as required, and we enhance the effectiveness of every machine because only one kind of system processes will run on it. This custom setup will enable you to expand your websites as much as you'd like without worrying about running out of disk storage.
