What is Disk Space?

What is Disk Space?Disk space is the amount of content allowed for a client. For instance, if a client is allocated 2GB (2,000MB) of disk space, then he or she could store up to 2,000 1MB pictures on that server.

When calculating disk space usage, it is the sum of files on the server, databases, log files and email.

If an individual exceeds their disk space limit, the server will not allow them to upload any additional files.

Each hosting plan has different disk space allocations.
