In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site stores all of its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback and so on are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you add, the more substantial the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site might not perform adequately as soon as you hit that limit. The results can vary from not being able to include new content to inadequately functioning site or even the site showing only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

All website hosting accounts bought through us are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where every part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and considering the fact that we can keep adding extra web servers to the cluster which manages them, the space which you could use for your databases is basically unrestricted. Thus, you could expand your Internet sites as much as you need and run any script that requires MySQL without ever worrying that you will reach some cap and that your websites will not work properly. You will also be able to freely export and import databases of any size through your Hepsia Internet hosting CP. In case you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24/7/365 tech support team to help you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of machines. Basically, when 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 practically no restriction for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole machines to the cluster as needed. Therefore, any MySQL-based site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can evolve without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks regardless how massive they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our technical support for assistance.
