In comparison with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site collects all of its information inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user responses etc are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you add, the larger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not work adequately after you reach that limit. The consequences can range from inability to include new info to badly functioning site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting

We use an innovative cloud website hosting platform and all databases created in the web hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of servers, so we've decided to not limit the total space they could take. Every database in an account could be of any size, so the growth of your sites won't be limited, since we can easily keep attaching extra servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and better load balancing. In case you run a discussion forum, for instance, you shall not need to worry that way too many users may join or that they may post way too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export and import a database of any size without difficulty. If you experience any issues with this task, you can look at our help articles and video lessons or you may communicate with our technical support team, that's available 24-7-365, including weekends and holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. Put simply, if you use this kind of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there's virtually no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disks or entire servers to the cluster as needed. Consequently, any MySQL-based website that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can expand without any limitations. Via the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks irrespective of how massive they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support team for help.
