When you upload a file on a web hosting server, it will need a certain amount of space on the hdd dependent on its particular size. When you run a script-driven internet site which keeps its data in a database, it will take more disk space, the more people make use of it. For example, in case you have a community forum, the more comments people write, the greater the database gets. E-mail messages, in particular ones having attachments, also require some disk space in the website hosting account. The disk space quota you get with any cloud hosting provider is the total amount of information you may have at any moment, and it includes site files, e-mail messages and databases. Similarly, a PC has a hard disk and the computer programs installed on it plus all of the docs or music files that you create or download take some storage, which cannot exceed the total capacity of the hdd.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
All of our cloud hosting plans were created with the idea that deficiency of disk space can't be a thing that should obstruct the progress of your web sites. For that reason we have taken an approach which is more advanced than the one that most web hosting providers apply - instead of just making all of the accounts on one server and subsequently running out of disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform in which the storage is handled by a large cluster of servers. Thus, we can attach more machines whenever they're needed and / or more hard drives, to be able to provide you with more disk space for all the files of our customers. Separate clusters control the emails as well as the databases, which means that not only can you develop your web sites without worrying about hard disk space, but also the servers will function faster and better as each and every service does have its storage space and a single server doesn't handle different types of files.
