TrueSpace® Disk StorageYOUR Space is YOUR Space!
HostUtopia TrueSpace® Disk Storage
HostUtopia’s TrueSpace® disk storage provides our web hosting clients with the best storage system provided in the web hosting industry.
When we reserve space in our web hosting environment for our clients it’s TrueSpace®, the drive will NEVER deliver a disk full error, nor will your space ever be shared with another user.
- TrueSpace® is protected by our customized Shared ServeUtopia storage environment. Our shared environment consists of customized E5 Processor Servers, each with 64GB of Ram and Raided 1TB HDs. We never oversell the servers space, once you lock in on your hosting plan the space is reserved on the server and is taken out of inventory. Traditional hosting companies oversell disk space, meaning they will sell more hosting plans than will actually fit on the server if all the users used that space, they rely on a high percentage of users not using their space. This can result in problems ranging from disk space errors, to many users on the server running up the processor usage and hogging all the ram.
The Unlimited Myth
- Many web hosting companies offer “unlimited” as a plan feature. It is impossible for any provider to actually provide an unlimited amount of bandwidth or disk space. It’s just not possible. How can you put 500 customers on a server with a 1000 GB Hard Drive and tell them all have unlimited space? Really? It’s called Puffery in Advertising!
- Whenever you see a web hosting provider claim “unlimited storage” be sure to read their Terms & Conditions of Use, unlimited is NOT unlimited, it’s unethical to make such false claims. We’ve tested Unlimited Storage on several of the TOP Hosts in North America; NON stood up to their claims.
So Why Do Unlimited Plans Exist?
- Most websites only consume a very small amount of bandwidth and disk space. Web hosting companies that provide unlimited anything as a plan feature are banking on the fact that you won’t use very much. Unlimited is a marketing trick to get your business. The web hosting market is very competitive this way. Although selling plans that pretend to be unlimited can seem dishonest, it does not mean that the hosting company will not provide good service. Check the hosting company’s Terms of Service: there will probably be a note about what “unlimited” really means.
