The disk space function shows the overall amount of information that you could have on a shared web hosting server at any time. With a home PC, for instance, this is the size of one hard drive or the overall volume of all hard disks in case that the PC has more than just a single one. The same way that the space on a home machine is shared between installed computer software, documents, music files and so on, the server storage space is usually shared between website files, databases and emails. Every file, folder and e-mail requires a little disk space on the server, so you should take into consideration a bunch of factors, not only the size of the files you upload. For example, getting large e-mail attachments or running a script-driven website where the user-generated content is located in a database may also affect the hdd space you're using.

Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans were created with the concept that not enough hard disk space shouldn't be a thing that will stop the development of your websites. Because of this we have taken an approach which is distinct from the one that most website hosting companies take - instead of just making a number of accounts using a singlle server and subsequently running out of disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform where the storage is handled by an entire collection of servers. That's why, we're able to add more machines if they're needed and / or more hard disk drives, in order to provide you with more disk space for all the files of our users. Separate clusters handle the emails and your databases, thus not only will you be able to enhance your sites without worrying about hard drive space, but also the servers will function faster and better considering the fact that each and every service does have its space for storing and a single server doesn't handle different types of files.
