Every time you upload a file on a web hosting server, it requires some space on the hard drive dependent on its size. In the event that you manage a script-driven website which keeps its info in a database, you will need more space, the more people use it. For instance, in case you have a message board, the more opinions people leave, the bigger the database gets. E-mail messages, in particular ones which have attachments, also need some disk space in the website hosting account. The hard disk space quota that you receive with any cloud hosting supplier is the overall amount of information you can have at any moment, it consists of site files, email messages and databases. Likewise, a home PC has a hard drive and the programs installed on it along with all the docs or music files that you generate or download require some storage, which cannot surpass the overall capacity of your hard drive.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
In order to suit the processing performance behind all our cloud web hosting plans, we've thought over and integrated the best possible option regarding the disk space - your hosting account is not created on a single server, but on a cluster system. Consequently, what we have developed is a whole group of servers that is focused on the file storage only, consequently you should never be worried about not having enough space and having to move to another server since your current one simply cannot accommodate more info. If more space is needed, we add more machines to our cluster, so that the hard disk space is practically inexhaustible. Needless to say, all of our cloud plans are designed to be used for web sites, not for a database of big files. We also have distinct machines for all the databases and the e-mail messages.
