i am searching for suitable shared hosting services with a high volume of space that I can use for my files, it will be around 10 Tera bytes.

all hosting company says they will provide (unlimited space) but unfortunately, once I asked them directly they say it was about 500GB, 1 TB,... like this.

so I need your help to find the best solution.

best regards,,


I don't think you will be able to find a shared host with that amount of diskspace. It would be better to get a dedicated solution.

What are you hosting that requires 10tb storage?


If you need a lot of free space, you can pay attention to Hostgator. Here you can order not only classic hosting, but also a VPS server or a dedicated server. It is possible to order a cloud server. I noticed that here all the hosting rental rates are without explicit restrictions, both in terms of traffic and storage. I advise you to consider this option.


If your site has 10 pages and takes up that average 2.2 MB, you will need at least 22 MB of space.  For a site with 100 pages, you will need 220 MB.  1 GB is enough for 450 pages - many sites will never need this amount. You won't need that amount you've written about.

No one will be able to provide you such a large amount of memory on your hard drive. The whole problem lies in the interpretation of the words "hosting server" and "dedicate server". A regular server is designed to solve goals for specific tasks, so the amount of free space varies from 125 GB to 1 TB. Dedicated servers solve the problem for a specific user - for example, in your case, you need a large amount of free space. Most companies can offer dedicate server with 8 TB.

Well, it depends on the resources you get from the web hosting company. If you have a lot of storage space and bandwidth, you can try using 2 to 3 websites in one shared hosting plan.

And if you want to deploy so many web hosting plans, try a different type of web hosting, like a VPS and a dedicated server.


The choice of web hosting is one of the crucial moments of any organization. Since the future fate of the organization's projects and its work as a whole depends on the decision taken.

The first step is to determine the minimum system requirements for any project or projects, whether further expansion and addition of functionality is planned. Since, if the plans of any company provide for the creation of several large Internet resources, then it is clearly worth choosing the services of a dedicated server, since virtual hosting will not be able to provide all the needs during deployment. And if you only plan to create a business card site with the main information about the company's services, you can use budget rates for virtual hosting.

The second point is to pay attention to the geographical location of the provider's equipment. Since the fast response time and download speed are the main characteristics when working with any Internet services.
If it is planned to attract foreign citizens, then the company should think about choosing additional, foreign web hosting services in order to reduce the time of customer access to data.

After determining the basic needs, you can already think about choosing a hosting provider and its necessary services.

Hosting providers themselves form their rating according to the following parameters:

Reliability (uptime) – the ratio of work time to downtime. This parameter is one of the main ones when choosing a provider;
Performance – that parameter determines the speed of the entire hosting as a whole, which is important when web  hosting resource-intensive projects;
Response time (ping) – shows the response time of the server after the client accesses it. The lower that parameter, the better;
Sustained load – the parameter is similar to the performance, but shows the general state of hosting for massive and long-term requests to the server;
Security – reliability of data security during placement.
For instance, tariffs for "Virtual Hosting" are compared and described according to the following quantitative and qualitative restrictions:

CGI support: Perl, PHP, Python, ASP, Ruby, JSP, Java;
modules and frameworks;
the size of the disk space for user files;
the amount of monthly traffic;
the number of sites that can be hosted within one account;
number of FTP users;
the number of E-mail boxes and the amount of disk space allocated for mail;
the number of databases and the size of disk space for databases;
number of concurrent processes per user;
the amount of RAM, and the maximum execution time allocated to each user process;
The choice between that line of tariffs should be made only from the price of the tariff and the opportunities provided. In some hosting companies, an SSL certificate and a domain for the website are a bonus to such tariffs.

If we talk about tariffs for a virtual server or a dedicated server, there are not so many restrictions, but they are more significant, so the main difference between these tariffs is in the resources allocated to the client:

hard disk capacity;
the amount of RAM
, the number of processor cores and its frequency.
The price for these tariffs starts from $10 per month, but the client is given full access to the server without any restrictions, as in the case of virtual web hosting. The client can independently choose the operating system that will be installed on the server, as well as he can install and configure the necessary software for himself.

Optionally, the following services are included in such tariffs:

Internet channel 100mbitsec with a dedicated IPv4 address;
The server control panel is for monitoring the server itself, which includes monitoring of consumed resources, creating system backups with the possibility of returning to them in case of problems and automatic installation of operating systems.;
The ISPmanager control panel is for managing the server configuration, which allows you to install user software in automatic mode, add domains, mailboxes, and also create backups.
When choosing between these tariffs, you should rely only on the system requirements of the deployed application and choose a tariff with the appropriate characteristics.

The "Colocation" service is the least popular of those described above. In most cases, companies that have their own expensive equipment prefer to host it and configure it themselves.
Since the prices for that service start from  $100 per month, and additionally the client pays for electricity costs on his own, it is impractical to use this service to accommodate a low-power computer or server.

In cases where full control over equipment, data and software is required, you should think about configuring any computer as a server yourself. Since all the necessary software is free and is freely available.
