Each time you upload data on a web hosting server, it will need some storage space on the hard disk drive dependent on its particular overall size. When you have a script-driven site which stores its information in a database, you will need more space, the more people use it. For instance, in the event that you have a community forum, the greater number of responses people leave, the greater the database will get. Emails, especially ones which have attachments, also take some space in the site hosting account. The hard disk space quota that you will get with your cloud hosting provider is the amount of info you can have at any moment, which features website files, e-mail messages as well as databases. Similarly, a home computer has a hdd and the software programs installed on it and all the docs or music files that you generate or download take some space, which can't surpass the overall capacity of the hard disk.
