“I can fit more stuff” might have thought, but the reality is that is unusual need a lot of disk space for a website, a blog, or email accounts.
The reality is quite different, most likely will not need more than 1 GB to have a website with multimedia content, databases, and a good use of email accounts.
A web page consists of many small files, as you know. This is the html or php files, for example, that are needed for operation, plus photos, or any other type of document you on the page.
In addition, the space occupied by your website, you have to keep in mind that your email accounts and your databases are also going to use the disk space.
It is a website that we did as an example to teach install and configure WordPress. This hosting account, including all the files that make up the Web, and databases, occupies 44 MB.
It is a website which would add more content, because it is a blog. The size will go up, but if we put the pictures with a reasonable size, consumption should not rise too.
If you add to that mail, the figure will go up, but always keep in mind that the mail function does not send and receive large files, so it should not rise much. Also, you can always download mail from the server to your computer, and configure your Outlook deleting it go as download, and thus consumption would be zero.
Disk space we offer
For many years our simple plan has been to 1 GB disk space, and has never been a problem for our customers. Someone always needs more, if for example will go up many documents, audio or video, but it is not usual.
We continue to 1GB with our simple plan, because it is still more than enough, and you can move to a higher plan at any time if necessary.
What we want to convey is that our hosting plans are conceived and designed with reasonable quantities, and we know that in practice are sufficient.
