The term "disk space" is sometimes called "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words refer to the exact same thing - the volume of information that you can upload to a website hosting account. The total size of what you have is calculated by accumulating the storage space taken by the overall content within the account, the most apparent being the files you upload. Two other things can often be forgotten by the majority of users, though - e-mails along with databases. Big attachments and databases of large script-driven websites will often need a lot of disk space as well. In order to employ a more common analogy, the hard drive space of your computer is consumed not only by files that you download, but additionally by docs you make together with software programs you install. Similarly, various things are counted towards the hard disk space your information takes on a web site hosting server, not just the uploads.
Disk Space in Website Hosting
All of our website hosting plans were created with the concept that too little storage space can't be something that can reduce the progress of your sites. Because of this we have applied a technique which is different from the one that most web hosting suppliers apply - rather than generating countless accounts using one server and subsequently running out of disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform where the storage is taken care of by a large cluster of servers. Because of this, we are able to install more machines whenever they are needed or more hard disk drives, to be able to supply more disk space for all of the files of our users. Separate clusters manage the e-mail messages and the databases, which means that not only will you be able to enhance your sites without having to worry about storage space, but also all the servers will operate faster and better since every service does have its space and one server doesn't handle different kinds of files.
