Web Space


Posted by Guildford Web Services on 11/September/2019

This is the second in a five part series called Web Hosting Basics.

Web Space is simply hard disk space. So when you type https://guildfordwebservices.com this gets turned into an IP address, which then pints to a file called index.html.

This file, plus folders of images, videos and text all sit on a hard drive. This hard drive has been divided up and sold as Web Space. So if you pay us £3 per month we give you 10GB of that Hard Disk for your website to reside. This is no different to your documents folder.

The only difference is that we have put a limit on how much you can store. If you want more however, it is just a simple upgrade on your account.
