The disk space function displays the total amount of data that you can have on your cloud hosting server at any time. With a desktop computer, for example, this would be the overall size of your hdd or the total size of all the hard disks in case that the PC has more than one. The same way that the space on a personal computer is divided between installed computer programs, documents, music files and the like, the server storage space is shared between site files, databases and email messages. Every single file, folder or email will take a little disk space on your server, therefore you should think about a bunch of factors, not only the size of the files that you will upload. For instance, receiving larger email attachments or running a script-driven site where the user-generated data is kept in a database may also affect the space you're using.

Disk Space in Cloud Hosting

All our cloud hosting plans were created with the concept that too little hard disk space can't be something that should reduce the development of your web sites. That's the reason why we've used an approach which is more advanced than the one that most website hosting suppliers use - rather than making a range of accounts on one server and subsequently not having enough hard disk space, we employ a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is handled by an entire group of servers. In this way, we can always install more machines in case they are required or more hard disks, so as to supply additional disk space for all the files of our clients. Individual clusters control the emails and your databases, so not only can you expand your sites without worrying about storage space, but also all of the servers will perform better and faster as every single service has its own storage space and one server does not handle different types of files.
