Generally， website space， also called shared hosting， is the occupied specific space for storing the website‘s contents and only can be accessed after realizing the domain name binding. Website space can be divided into two parts： web page and database space. Web page usually contains static space， ASP/ASP.net space， PHP space and JSP space， etc. according to the selected programs， and can store the documents and files including texts， flash， downloaded files， web pages， images and Access databases of the website. While the database space includes Access， MySQL and MSSQL databases， and Access database has no separate space and always works with ASP page.
Basically， the html files， product images and informative pages among the general website establishment need 100M space capacity in total. In addition， some other spaces are still needed for most enterprises to store the feedbacks and backup files. Therefore， 100M- 300M space capacity is totally enough for a normal site. More videos and images can be uploaded when your purchasing the bigger space. So， how to identify the space capacity you need， please remember to check the following points.

2. By the need of the website：
The importance of the website， as well as the strength of the corporate， shall affect the selection of the target shared hosting too often. For general enterprise， the shared hosting is totally enough. While for those companies with abundant budgets， you’d better purchase VPS or dedicated server.
3. By the quote of the website：
Product quote is also a vital element. Quoting too high or too low is not that proper. Paying the bill for the web hosting with large capacity will definitely waste your budget， while buying the rather cheap one will bring the potential risk for your station instead. Thus， the best way for you to tackle this problem is to stick to your actual needs.
