Every time you upload data on a web hosting server, it requires some storage space on the hard drive depending on its particular overall size. In the event that you operate a script-driven website which saves its information in a database, it will need more disk space, the more people work with it. For example, if you have a discussion board, the more responses people write, the larger the database will be. E-mail messages, particularly ones which have attachments, also require some disk space in the website hosting account. The hard disk space quota that you receive with any hosting provider is the amount of info you may have at any moment, and it includes web site files, e-mail messages as well as databases. Similarly, a PC has a hard disk drive and the computer programs installed on it along with all docs and music files that you create or download take some space, which can't exceed the full capacity of the hard disk drive.
Disk Space in Hosting
In order to match the processing power behind our cloud website hosting packages, we've thought over and implemented the best possible option related to disk space - your hosting account will not be created using a single server, but using a cluster system. Therefore, what we have developed is a whole group of servers that is focused on the file storage only, hence you should never be worried about running out of hard disk space and having to switch to a new server since your existing one can't accommodate more information. Any time extra space is necessary, we just attach more machines to the cluster, so the hard disk space is unlimited. Needless to say, all our Linux hosting packages are designed to be used for websites, not for an archive of large files. We also have individual machines for all the databases and the e-mail messages.
