Every time you upload information on a web hosting server, it will need an amount of storage space on the hdd depending on its overall size. When you operate a script-driven website which saves its info in a database, it will take more disk space, the more people use it. To give an example, if you have a message board, the more comments people write, the greater the database will get. Email messages, particularly ones using attachments, also require some disk space in the site hosting account. The HDD space quota you get with your cloud website hosting supplier is the amount of info you could have at any given moment, which includes site files, email messages and databases. Likewise, a home computer has a hard disk drive and the computer programs installed on it together with all of the docs or music files that you generate or download require some storage, which can't exceed the full capacity of your hard drive.
Disk Space in Cloud Website Hosting
All our cloud website hosting packages were made with the notion that shortage of disk space can't be a thing that will stop the growth of your websites. For that reason we've used a technique which is different from the one that most web hosting companies apply - instead of making all of the accounts on a single server and eventually running out of hard disk space, we use a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is handled by a wide cluster of servers. That's why, we're able to attach more machines whenever they're necessary or more HDDs, to be able to provide you with additional disk space for the files of our users. Individual clusters take care of the e-mail messages as well as your databases, consequently not only is it possible to develop your websites without worrying about hdd space, but also all the servers will operate faster and better because each service does have its storage space and an individual server does not handle different kinds of files.
