In comparison with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site stores all of its information in a database. Just a few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user responses and so forth are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your Internet site may not work properly after you hit that limit. The end results can vary from inability to include new info to badly functioning Internet site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Hosting

We use a state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and all databases set up in the hosting accounts on it are managed by an independent cluster of servers, so we've decided not to limit the total space they could take. Each database inside an account may be of any size, so the expansion of your websites will not be limited, due to the fact that we can keep attaching extra machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a community forum, for example, you'll not need to worry that way too many users could join or that they may post far too many comments. When you use our custom-made Hepsia CP, you will be able to export and import a database of any size easily. If you encounter any difficulties with this task, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or you could communicate with our tech support team, that's available 24x7x365, including weekends & holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated service we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of machines. Basically, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there's practically no restriction for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disks or entire web servers to the cluster as needed. Therefore, any MySQL-based website that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily develop without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks irrespective of how large they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for assistance.
