The term "disk space" may also be called "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words mean exactly the same thing - the amount of information that you'll be able to upload to a cloud web hosting account. The total size of what you have is estimated by accumulating the storage space used by all of the content within your account, the most obvious being the types of files that you upload. Two more things are sometimes overlooked by various people, though - e-mails along with databases. Big attachments or databases of large script-driven websites will often use a lot of disk space too. In order to use a more recognizable analogy, the hard drive space of your home computer is consumed not just by files that you download, but also by documents you create together with programs you install. Likewise, numerous things are counted for the hdd space your info needs on a web site hosting server, not only the uploads.

Disk Space in Cloud Web Hosting

All of our cloud web hosting plans were developed with the idea that too little hard disk space shouldn't be something that can stop the progress of your sites. Which is why we have taken a technique which is more advanced than the one that most web hosting companies apply - instead of just generating all of the accounts on a single server and subsequently running out of storage space, we employ a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is handled by a large group of servers. That's why, we are able to add more machines if they are required and more hard disk drives, in order to provide extra disk space for all the files of our users. Separate clusters control the email messages and your databases, so not only will you be able to expand your sites without having to worry about hard disk space, but also all of the servers will perform faster and better since every single service does have its space for storing and a single server doesn't handle different kinds of files.
