The term "disk space" is oftentimes called "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these terms mean the very same thing - the volume of data that you are able to upload to a hosting account. The total size of the things you have is estimated by accumulating the storage space consumed by the entire content within the account, the most obvious being the data files that you upload. Two more things can often be forgotten by many end users, though - email messages as well as databases. Sizeable attachments and databases of big script-driven internet sites can sometimes require a lot of disk space as well. In order to use a more familiar analogy, the hdd space of your computer system is used not just by files you download, but also by docs you generate together with programs you install. Similarly, many things are counted towards the disk space that your information uses on a web hosting server, not only the uploads.
Disk Space in Hosting
All of our hosting packages were developed with the notion that lack of disk space shouldn't be something that can prevent the growth of your websites. For that reason we have applied a technique which is distinct from the one that most web hosting suppliers use - instead of creating a number of accounts using a singlle server and eventually not having enough disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform where the storage is handled by a large group of servers. Thus, we're able to install more machines in case they are necessary and / or more HDDs, to provide additional disk space for the files of our clients. Different clusters handle the emails as well as the databases, thus not only can you develop your sites without having to worry about hdd space, but also all the servers will operate faster and better because every service has its own space for storage and a single server does not handle various kinds of files.
Disk Space in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers have disk space quotas proportionate to the processing power that you will get with each and every plan. By using a higher package, for instance, the chances are greater that you'll host a large number of domain names or just a single big web site, therefore your hdd space grows as you upgrade your package. If you employ the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, all the domains will share the storage, and if you select DirectAdmin or cPanel, you can generate separate web hosting accounts and allocate a limited amount of the overall VPS storage space for every individual site. You can even reallocate hdd storage from one domain to another when needed. When you order a given VPS package and you need extra space afterwards, you can upgrade to a greater plan with no more than a couple of clicks from your billing section. The added resources will be included in your active plan without server downtime or content migration.
Disk Space in Dedicated Servers
With all the disk storage that we provide with all of our dedicated servers, we warrant that you can operate every website regardless of its overall size. You'll get at least 500 GB storage space, which you're able to use as you see fit - even for private file storage. By default, you'll be given 2 hard drives, that can be used independent of each other, to take advantage of their full capacity, or they can be in RAID so that one will mirror the other in real time to ensure that you will not waste precious info in case of a hardware breakdown. You'll also be given the option to add more disks and upgrade the entire HDD space you can use even more. This will allow you to make a file or image depository portal without any problems if you'd like. Using the DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels that we offer, you'll be able to set up a separate account for every single site that you host on the server and pre-define an allowance for the disk space it can use. When you get the third alternative, our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, all the domain names will be managed in a single and they'll share the entire server disk storage space.
