In contrast to a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site collects all its info in a database. Just a couple of examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user comments etc are stored 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 could have, your website may not function properly when you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to add new content to improperly working site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting
We use a state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and all databases created in the web hosting accounts on it are managed by an independent cluster of servers, so we've made the decision to not limit the total space they can take. Any database in an account could be of any size, so the development of your sites will not be constrained, given that we could keep connecting additional web servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In case you run a community forum, for instance, you will not have to worry that a great number of users could join or that they could post far too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom-made Hepsia CP, you shall be able to export and import a database of any size with no trouble. If you come across any difficulties with this task, you can look at our help articles and video tutorials or you can get hold of our technical support team, which is available 24-7, including weekends & holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of machines. In other words, when you use this kind of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's practically no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disk drives or entire machines to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based web site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account may develop without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks no matter how massive they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support team for help.
