Anytime you upload data on a web hosting server, it takes a certain amount of storage space on the hard drive depending on its particular size. In case you operate a script-driven site which stores its info in a database, it will need more space, the more people make use of it. For example, in case you have a message board, the more opinions people leave, the greater the database will be. Messages, in particular ones having attachments, also need some disk space in the web hosting account. The disk space quota that you will get with any shared hosting provider is the total amount of info you can have at any given moment, and this consists of website files, email messages as well as databases. Likewise, a PC has a hard disk drive and the programs installed on it along with all docs and / or music files that you create or download take some disk space, which can't exceed the overall capacity of your hard disk drive.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

We've developed our Linux shared hosting with the notion that the hard disk storage shouldn't be a problem for your sites. While many hosting suppliers generate accounts using one server, and as a matter of fact, the most popular Control Panels are intended to function solely on this type of platform, we have taken a completely different approach. We have groups of servers that take care of every element of the hosting service, to ensure that your files are stored on one cluster, the emails on another,the databases using a third one, and so on. On this cloud platform we accomplish two things - the hard drive space is virtually endless because we're able add as many servers and hard disks to our clusters as needed, and we increase the efficiency of every machine as only one kind of system processes will run on it. This tailor-made setup will allow you to extend your web sites as you see fit without worrying about not having enough hard drive space.
