Every time you upload a file on a web hosting server, it will take an amount of storage space on the hard disk drive depending on its size. If you operate a script-driven site which keeps its info in a database, it will require more disk space, the more people work with it. To give an example, if you have a community forum, the more responses people leave, the bigger the database gets. E-mails, especially ones using attachments, also take some disk space in the website hosting account. The disk space quota you get with each cloud web hosting provider is the full amount of info you can have at any given moment, which features site files, e-mail messages plus databases. Likewise, a PC has a hard disk and the programs installed on it together with all of the documents and music files that you create or download require storage, which cannot exceed the total capacity of your hard disk drive.
