The disk space feature displays the full volume of info that you can have on your shared hosting server at one time. With a personal computer, for instance, this would be the overall size of a single hdd or the total volume of all hard disk drives in case that your computer has more than just a single one. Exactly as your space on a PC is divided between installed software, docs, music files and the like, the server hard disk space is normally shared between site files, databases and e-mail messages. Each file, folder and email uses a little space on your server, which means you should consider a lot of factors, not only the size of the files that you upload. For example, having sizeable e-mail attachments or using a script-driven website in which the user-generated content is saved in a database will also affect the hdd space you're using.
Disk Space in Shared Hosting
All of our shared hosting packages were made with the idea that not sufficient disk space cannot be a thing that can limit the progress of your web sites. That's the reason why we've taken an approach which is not the same as the one that most website hosting companies use - instead of creating countless accounts using a singlle server and subsequently running out of disk space, we work with a cloud hosting platform where the storage space is handled by a whole collection of servers. That's why, we're able to connect more machines if they're required or more hard drives, to be able to provide you with extra disk space for all of the files of our valued customers. Separate clusters handle the email messages and the databases, therefore not only are you able to develop your websites without worrying about hard drive space, but also all of the servers will function faster and better because each service does have its storage space and a single server does not handle various kinds of files.
