The term "disk space" is oftentimes labeled as "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these terms refer to exactly the same thing - the volume of info that you'll be able to upload to a cloud website hosting account. The total size of what you have is determined by accumulating the storage space consumed by all the content in the account, the most apparent being the types of files you upload. Two more things are sometimes ignored by many people, though - emails as well as databases. Big attachments and databases of larger script-driven sites can often use a lot of storage space as well. To use a more familiar analogy, the hard drive space of your laptop or computer is taken not just by files you download, but also by documents you make as well as programs you install. Likewise, numerous things are counted for the hard disk space your content needs on a web hosting server, not just the uploads.

Disk Space in Cloud Website Hosting

We've developed our Linux cloud website hosting with the idea that the hard disk space should not be a setback for your sites. While many web hosting companies set up accounts using a single server, and as a matter of fact, the most common Control Panels are designed to function solely on this type of platform, we've applied an alternative strategy. We have groups of servers that control every aspect of the hosting service, which means that your files will be stored on a single cluster, the emails on another one,your databases using a third one, etc. Using this cloud platform we accomplish two things - the disk space is actually inexhaustible considering that we can add as many servers and hard disk drives to the clusters as needed, and we improve the performance of each machine because only one type of processes will operate on it. This custom-made setup will allow you to expand your sites as much as you'd like without worrying about not having enough disk storage.
