Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all of its data in a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user feedback and so on are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the bigger the database becomes and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site might not perform adequately once you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from being unable to add new information to improperly working website or even the website displaying only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Hosting

We use an innovative cloud hosting platform and all databases set up in the hosting accounts on it are controlled by a different cluster of web servers, so we've chosen not to limit the total space they could take. Every database in an account could be of any size, so the development of your websites shall not be constrained, since we can easily keep connecting extra machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and better load balancing. If you run a discussion forum, for instance, you will not have to worry that too many users could join or that they could post far too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom-made Hepsia CP, you will be able to export and import a database of any size without difficulty. If you face any difficulties with this task, you should check our help articles and video tutorials or you could contact our technical support crew, that's available 24x7x365, including weekends and holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. Put simply, if you use this kind of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there is essentially no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many HDDs or whole web servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based web site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account may evolve without any limitations. Via the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed through the Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks regardless of how big they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support for assistance.
