The term "disk space" may also be called "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words mean exactly the same thing - the amount of information that you can upload to a shared web hosting account. The total size of everything you have is calculated by accumulating the space consumed by all of the content in your account, the most obvious being the data files you upload. Two more things are often overlooked by many users, though - e-mail messages and also databases. Sizeable attachments and databases of larger script-driven websites will often use a lot of disk space as well. To employ a more familiar analogy, the hard disk space of your computer system is consumed not just by files you download, but additionally by docs you write along with programs you install. In a similar way, numerous things are counted for the hard disk space that your data uses on a website hosting server, not just the uploads.
Disk Space in Shared Web Hosting
All our shared web hosting packages were made with the idea that shortage of disk space cannot be a thing that can prevent the development of your sites. For this reason we have used an approach which is distinct from the one that most hosting providers take - instead of creating a range of accounts using one server and eventually not having enough storage space, we employ a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is taken care of by a wide collection of servers. Thus, we can always install more machines when they are needed and more hard disks, in order to provide you with more disk space for all of the files of our customers. Different clusters control the email messages and your databases, so not only will you be able to enhance your websites without worrying about storage space, but also the servers will perform better and faster considering the fact that every service does have its space and a single server does not handle different kinds of files.
