The term "disk space" may also be called "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these words mean the very same thing - the volume of info that you'll be able to upload to a cloud website hosting account. The overall size of everything you have is estimated by accumulating the storage space consumed by all of the content in your account, the most apparent being the files that you upload. Two other things are usually ignored by many users, though - emails along with databases. Sizable attachments and databases of big script-driven websites will often use a lot of disk space too. To employ a more recognizable analogy, the hard disk space of your computer is used not just by files you download, but additionally by docs you make together with programs you install. In the same way, many things are counted in the hard disk space that your content uses on a website hosting server, not only the uploads.
Disk Space in Cloud Website Hosting
In order to suit the processing potential behind all of our cloud web hosting plans, we have studied and integrated the best possible system about the disk space - your hosting account is not generated using a single server, but using a cluster platform. For that reason, what we've designed is a large group of servers which is centered on the file storage only, hence you should never worry about not having enough space and having to move to an additional server as your current one simply cannot accommodate more data. In case more space is needed, all we need to do is attach extra machines to the cluster, so the hard drive space is practically limitless. Still, all our cloud website hosting plans are meant to be used for web sites, not for a collection of big files. We also have separate machines for the databases and the e-mail messages.
