The term "disk space" is sometimes identified as "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words mean the very same thing - the volume of information that you can upload to a hosting account. The total size of the things you have is determined by accumulating the storage space taken by the entire content in the account, the most apparent being the files that you upload. Two more things are frequently ignored by various people, though - e-mail messages and also databases. Big attachments and databases of large script-driven websites will often take a lot of storage space as well. To employ a more common analogy, the hdd space of your home computer is used not just by files that you download, but also by docs you write and software programs you add. In a similar way, a number of things are counted in the hard disk space your data employs on a website hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Hosting
In order to suit the processing performance behind our cloud website hosting plans, we have considered and integrated the perfect option about the disk space - your hosting account will not be generated using a single server, but using a cluster system. Therefore, what we've designed is a whole cluster of servers that is focused on the file storing only, hence you should never be worried about running out of HDD space and having to switch to a different server since your current one cannot accommodate more data. If extra space is needed, all we need to do is add extra machines to the cluster, so that the disk space is inexhaustible. Needless to say, all of our hosting are designed to be used for sites, not for a collection of big files. We have distinct machines for your databases as well as the emails.
