Anytime you upload data on a web hosting server, it requires some storage space on the hard drive depending on its particular overall size. When you have a script-driven internet site which keeps its information in a database, it will take more disk space, the more people make use of it. For example, in case you have a discussion board, the greater number of opinions people leave, the greater the database will be. Email messages, especially ones which have attachments, also require some disk space in the web hosting account. The hard disk space quota you get with each cloud hosting provider is the total amount of info you could have at any moment, and it includes web site files, e-mail messages and databases. Likewise, a home PC has a hdd and the software programs installed on it together with all docs or music files that you make or download take some storage, which can't exceed the total capacity of the hard drive.
