Disk space refers to the amount of storage space allocated to a website and all associated files on a server. Basically, it’s the same as disk space on your computer’s hard drive
With 10 GB of storage, you can run a blog, website, or even an online store. Media typically consumes the most space, but you can save a lot of room by compressing your images and videos or offloading them to an external platform like Dropbox. We recommend offloading all of your larger files.
For videos, it’s wise to take advantage of dedicated platforms like YouTube and Vimeo. Those platforms can store your content for free, and load them in the background much faster than if they were stored on the same server as your website. YouTube and Vimeo create multiple, compressed copies of your videos so they can start playing a lower-quality version while the better quality is still loading. This is something that won’t happen with self-hosted videos.
By implementing these best practices, you’ll quickly realize that 10 GB of storage for a few images and some code will leave plenty of headroom for your website to run smoothly.
