Even ISPs have only so much disk space available. A typical ISP provider will include with each account between 5 MB and 250 MB of disk space for ISP web hosting. These size restrictions are put in place to ensure that ISP service does not deteriorate. While 5 - 250 MB may seem like nothing when home computers come with so much more disk space, remember that space directly connected to the Internet on a Web server is a significantly more valuable shared resource. Usually the hardware providing the space is of a higher quality than the hardware used in home computers and features better redundancy and error correction capabilities.
