Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site gathers its information inside a database. Just a few examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user responses and so forth are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website might not perform correctly after you reach that limit. The end results can range from inability to include new information to improperly working site or even the website showing only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Hosting

We use a groundbreaking cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases set up in the hosting accounts on it are controlled by an independent cluster of web servers, so we've made the decision to not limit the total space they can take. Any database inside an account could be of any size, so the growth of your Internet sites shall not be limited, given that we could keep connecting extra web servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In case you run a community forum, for instance, you'll not have to worry that a great number of users may join or that they may post way too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export and import a database of any size without difficulty. If you experience any difficulties with this task, you can look at our help articles and instructional videos or you could get in touch with our tech support crew, that's available round-the-clock, including weekends & holidays.

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 email messages are handled by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's virtually no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disks or entire web servers to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily develop without any restrictions. With the phpMyAdmin tool, which could be accessed through 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 lack previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support team for help.
