    Web Hosting 101 - Disk Space

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    Once youíve found a hosting company that meets your customer support needs, the next very important step is looking into their specs. Youíve got to consider your siteís needs, both immediate and in the future.

    Essentially, disk space is the amount of content and data that you can store on your host's server. If you've only got text, there isnít much for you to worry about, but if you plan on having your site feature images, downloads, or audio and visual files, pay extra attention to the amount of disk space the host is offering.

    Most simple Web pages average about 40KB in size, with most small businesses using less than 100MB of space. Thumbnail images will probably be about 2KB or 3KB and full-size images can be kept to as low as 150KB to 200KB without sacrificing too much in the way of quality.

    An 8-second video clip, on the other hand, will be about 1MB in size. Therefore, any site that is graphic-intensive or has downloadable files will need a large amount of disk space for storage.
