The term "disk space" is oftentimes called "disk quota" or "data storage", however all these words refer to exactly the same thing - the amount of info that you are able to upload to a cloud hosting account. The full size of what you have is determined by accumulating the space consumed by all of the content in the account, the most apparent being the files that you upload. Two more things are often overlooked by a lot of users, though - emails and also databases. Sizeable attachments and databases of large script-driven sites can often use a lot of disk space as well. To use a more common analogy, the hard disk space of your home computer is taken not just by files you download, but additionally by docs you make along with programs you install. In the same way, a number of things are counted for the hard disk space that your content employs on a web hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
To suit the processing power behind all our cloud website hosting packages, we have taken into consideration and employed the best possible system about the disk space - your hosting account is not made using one server, but using a cluster system. Due to this fact, what we've created is a large cluster of servers that is centered on the file storing only, hence you should never worry about running out of space and having to move to another server as your existing one can't accommodate more data. If more space is needed, all we have to do is add extra machines to our cluster, so that the hard disk space is virtually limitless. Needless to say, all of our Linux cloud packages were made to be used for sites, not for an archive of large files. We also have separate machines for all the databases and the e-mails.
