In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site collects all of its info inside a database. A few examples of this sort of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, prices, blog posts, user reviews and so on are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site might not function adequately as soon as you reach that limit. The results can range from being unable to include new info to badly functioning website or even the site displaying only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are controlled by a different cluster of web servers, so we've chosen not to limit the total space they can take. Any database inside an account can be of any size, so the development of your Internet sites will not be restricted, as we could keep attaching more and more web servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion board, for instance, you won't 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 Hepsia CP, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size without difficulty. If you come across any problems with this task, you can check our help articles and video lessons or you can communicate with our technical support team, that's available 24x7x365, including weekends & holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans that we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of servers. Simply put, if you use such a plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases as there's virtually no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard drives or entire machines to the cluster as needed. Consequently, any MySQL-based site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can grow without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks irrespective of how big they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for help.
