Each time you upload data on a web hosting server, it requires a certain amount of space on the hdd dependent on its size. In case you manage a script-driven website which saves its info in a database, you will need more space, the more people make use of it. For example, in case you have a discussion forum, the greater amount of opinions people leave, the larger the database shall get. E-mail messages, in particular ones using attachments, also require some space in the site hosting account. The HDD space quota that you will get with any shared web hosting supplier is the full amount of data you could have at any moment, which incorporates website files, messages and databases. Likewise, a PC has a hdd and the programs installed on it along with any docs or music files that you create or download require storage space, which can't exceed the overall capacity of your hard disk drive.

Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting

All of our shared web hosting packages were developed with the notion that too little disk space should not be a thing that will obstruct the development of your web sites. For that reason we've taken an approach which is distinct from the one that most website hosting suppliers apply - instead of just making a number of accounts using one server and eventually not having enough hard disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is taken care of by a large cluster of servers. In this way, we are able to attach more machines in case they are needed and more hard disk drives, to be able to provide more disk space for all the files of our valued clients. Individual clusters handle your emails as well as your databases, as a result not only is it possible to develop your websites without having to worry about space, but also the servers will function better and faster since every service features its own space and an individual server doesn't handle different types of files.
