Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site gathers all its info inside a database. Just a few examples of such Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user responses and so on are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the larger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site may not work adequately when you reach that limit. The results can vary from not being able to add new information to improperly performing website or even the website showing only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

We use a revolutionary cloud website hosting platform and all databases created in the shared website hosting accounts on it are managed by a separate cluster of servers, so we've made a decision to not limit the total space they can take. Each database inside an account can be of any size, so the development of your sites will not be constrained, since we could keep attaching additional machines to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion forum, for example, you'll not have to worry that way too many users may join or that they may post too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export and import a database of any size with no trouble. If you face any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and instructional videos or you can get hold of our technical support team, which is available round-the-clock, including weekends & holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, if you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there is practically no restriction for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disk drives or entire machines to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account could expand without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia Internet hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless how large they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support team for help.
