The disk space feature displays the total amount of information that you are able to have on a website hosting server at one time. With a home PC, for instance, this is the capacity of one hard drive or the overall volume of all hard disks in case that your PC has more than just a single one. Exactly as your space on a home machine is divided between installed computer programs, documents, music and the like, the server disk space is divided between internet site files, databases and email messages. Every single file, folder and email message takes some space on your server, which means you should take into account a lot of factors, not only the size of the files that you will upload. For instance, getting sizable e-mail attachments or running a script-driven website in which the user-generated content material is located in a database will also affect the hdd space you are using.
