Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website gathers all of its information in a database. Just a few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the larger the database gets and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site might not perform correctly as soon as you reach that limit. The consequences can vary from being unable to include new info to improperly functioning website or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

All website hosting accounts acquired from us are created on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform where every single part of the web hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and since we're able to keep adding extra web servers to the cluster which handles them, the space that you may use for your databases is practically unlimited. Thus, you can easily develop your sites as much as you want and run any script which requires MySQL without ever worrying you'll reach some cap and that your Internet sites will not function as expected. In addition, you’ll be able to freely export and import databases of various size via your Hepsia web hosting CP. In case you have any questions in this matter, you may ask our 24x7x365 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. In other words, if you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases simply because there is essentially no limit for the database space - we can keep adding as many HDDs or whole servers to the cluster as needed. Consequently, any MySQL-based website that you host in the semi-dedicated account could develop without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks no matter how massive they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support team for assistance.
