The disk space function shows the total capacity of info that you can have on your web hosting server at any given time. With a home PC, for example, this is the total size of your hard disk or the total capacity of all hard disks in case that your PC has more than 1. The same way that your space on a personal computer is shared between installed software, documents, your music and so on, the server hdd space is usually divided between site files, databases and email messages. Each file, folder and e-mail takes a little storage space on your server, so you should take into consideration a bunch of factors, not just the size of the files that you will upload. To give an example, getting larger email attachments or using a script-driven site in which the user-generated content is kept in a database will also affect the hdd space you are using.
Disk Space in Web Hosting
By using our web hosting plans, you'll never concern yourself with hard drive storage. While most providers generate accounts using just a single server and sooner or later all the server hdd space is in use, we've implemented a cloud web hosting system where the files, e-mail messages and the databases are handled by distinct groups of servers. In this way, each machine performs better since just a single type of processes is functioning on it, and the disk space is unlimited because we can always connect additional servers or hard disks to the cluster, based on whether we want more processing power or more space. You will never be in a scenario where you are not able to upload more files for the reason that there's no free disk space on the server, that is an issue you can experience with various suppliers. If you use our hosting services, you can rest assured that insufficient space will not be a holdback for the growth of your web sites.
