In comparison with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website gathers all its data inside a database. Just a few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, rates, blog posts, user responses etc are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you add, the bigger the database becomes and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site may not perform properly when you reach that limit. The consequences can range from being unable to add new information to badly working site or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

We use a groundbreaking cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the cloud hosting accounts on it are controlled by a separate cluster of servers, so we have made a decision not to limit the total space they can take. Any database inside an account could be of any size, so the development of your Internet sites will not be constrained, as we can keep connecting extra machines to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion board, for instance, you won't have to worry that too many users could join or that they might post too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom-made Hepsia CP, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size with ease. If you experience any difficulties with this task, you can check our help articles and video lessons or you could contact our technical support team, which is available 24x7, including weekends & holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans which we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of machines. Simply put, if you use such a plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there's practically no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard drives or whole servers to the cluster as needed. As a result, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily grow without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks no matter how massive they are. If you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support team for help.
