The disk space feature displays the total volume of information that you can have on a shared hosting server at a time. With a home PC, for example, this would be the overall size of one hard drive or the total capacity of all the hard disk drives in case that the computer has more than one. Exactly as the space on a home machine is divided between installed computer software, docs, music files etcetera, the server storage space is usually divided between website files, databases and e-mail messages. Every single file, folder or e-mail takes some storage space on your server, which means you should consider quite a few factors, not just the size of the files that you upload. To give an example, having large e-mail attachments or having a script-driven site where the user-generated information is stored in a database may also affect the hdd space you're using.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans were made with the idea that limited hard disk space can't be something that will limit the progress of your sites. Which is why we have applied a technique which is not the same as the one that most web hosting companies apply - rather than creating all the accounts using one server and subsequently not having enough disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform in which the storage is taken care of by a wide cluster of servers. In this way, we can always connect more machines if they are necessary and / or more hard disk drives, to be able to supply extra disk space for all the files of our users. Different clusters handle your emails as well as the databases, thus not only is it possible to enhance your websites without worrying about hard disk space, but also all of the servers will function faster and better due to the fact that every service features its own space and a single server doesn't handle different types of files.
