The term "disk space" may also be called "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these terms mean exactly the same thing - the volume of information that you can upload to a shared website hosting account. The total size of the things you have is determined by accumulating the space used by the entire content within your account, the most apparent being the files that you upload. Two other things are frequently disregarded by various people, though - email messages along with databases. Larger attachments or databases of huge script-driven websites will often need a lot of disk space as well. To employ a more familiar analogy, the hdd space of your computer is consumed not just by files you download, but also by documents you write as well as programs you add. Likewise, a number of things are counted towards the hdd space that your information uses on a website hosting server, not only the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Website Hosting
All our shared website hosting plans were designed with the idea that deficiency of storage space can't be a thing that should limit the growth of your web sites. Which is why we have used a technique which is distinct from the one that most website hosting suppliers use - rather than generating a number of accounts using one server and eventually not having enough disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is taken care of by a whole group of servers. Because of this, we can always add more machines in case they are necessary and / or more hard drives, to be able to provide additional disk space for all of the files of our users. Individual clusters control your e-mail messages and the databases, as a result not only can you increase the size of your web sites not worrying about hard disk space, but also all of the servers will operate better and faster owing to the fact that every service does have its space for storing and an individual server doesn't handle different kinds of files.
