Definition of "Web space"?


[link to this post]
 
I'm asking this just to make sure that I'm not understanding this wrong.

If an ISP made this claim about its product on its own web site:- "Each package includes 250MB of free premium UK web space", what would be your understanding of the term "web space".

Thanks in advance.

You have 250MB of web space to play with...simples. Seriously, what else could it mean?

Webspace is disk space on a web server used to store html pages and other content that you can access through a browser.

But "premium"? Is it somehow faster than the norm?

Could well be, I guess it's on Xilo's premium UK web servers.

The OP raised this with us today and I replied with the following:

Unfortunately, that isn't how the allocation works. Some could argue that 250MB "web" space is for an amount of space for your account hosted on the "web".

The amount is collective, so if you do find that you need more space, you would need switch to a shared hosting account. If you had 250MB of files and then received an email, it would be queued until you had enough space, up to 7 days before being returned to the sender.

I will however look at modifying that page to give greater clarity as it is the first time anyone has queried the term.


We regard web space as the entire space allocated to an account to be used however the account holder wants. It could be used all for files, or even emails.

What people define as "web space" varies* so we have changed the text slightly to indicate it is for both so there is no further confusion.

Matt

* others regard web space to include emails too.

Other things have taken priority and as we would rather focus on existing customers with existing or new requirements, it is a little down the priority list.
