Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site collects all of its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you add, the larger the database becomes and if your website hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not perform properly as soon as you reach that limit. The consequences can vary from being unable to include new info to badly working site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting

We use an innovative cloud hosting platform and all databases created in the shared web hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of servers, so we've chosen not to limit the total space they can take. Every database inside an account can be of any size, so the growth of your Internet sites won't be constrained, due to the fact that we can keep attaching extra web servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In case you run a discussion forum, for example, you won't have to worry that a great number of users may join or that they may post too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom Hepsia CP, you shall be able to export and import a database of any size easily. If you experience any problems with this task, you should check our help articles and video lessons or you can contact our tech support team, that is available 24/7, including weekends and holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting services which we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of web servers. Basically, when you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's practically no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many HDDs or whole servers to the cluster as needed. As a result, any MySQL-based web site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account could develop without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks regardless of how large they are. If you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for assistance.
