What is Disk Space?

Disk Space?

As for Disk space, well that really is solely dependent on the content of your web site. Most web sites average around 150 MB with a single web page taking up around 40-50KB. Many Web Hosting providers will offer unlimited disk space. In my opinion 5 GB is more then enough for most individuals and small to medium businesses.

However, it is worth considering just what the content of your website will be. Will there be banner ads, will you have a lot of graphics, video media and or photo’s? Will your web site be database driven, or have downloadable software? For the average advanced user 50GB is usually plenty.


Basically the more advanced and media rich your web site is, the more disk space and probably bandwidth you’ll need. But again, a reminder, you don’t have to go crazy.
