Each time you upload a file on a web hosting server, it requires a certain amount of storage space on the hdd dependent on its particular overall size. When you have a script-driven website which stores its data in a database, it will need more space, the more people make use of it. For example, if you have a discussion forum, the greater amount of opinions people leave, the bigger the database shall get. Emails, particularly ones using attachments, also need some disk space in the web hosting account. The hard disk space quota that you receive with each website hosting supplier is the overall amount of info you may have at any given moment, and it contains web site files, emails as well as databases. Similarly, a PC has a hard drive and the computer software installed on it along with all of the documents or music files that you create or download take some storage space, which can't surpass the full capacity of your hdd.
Disk Space in Website Hosting
To match the processing performance behind all of our cloud website hosting packages, we've studied and implemented the very best option about the disk space - your hosting account is not created using a single server, but on a cluster platform. For that reason, what we have made is a large group of servers which is dedicated to the file storing only, so you should never worry about running out of hard drive space and having to switch to another server because your current one can't accommodate more info. Whenever extra space is necessary, all we need to do is add extra machines to the cluster, so that the hard disk space is practically inexhaustible. Still, all our website hosting plans were made to be used for web sites, not for a collection of big files. We have different machines for all the databases as well as the emails.
