In contrast to a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site stores its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of such Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user comments and so forth are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the larger the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your Internet site might not perform properly after you hit that limit. The end results can vary from inability to include new data to badly functioning Internet site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting accounts purchased 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 aren't an exception and considering the fact that we can keep adding extra servers to the cluster that manages them, the space which you can use for your databases is basically unrestricted. That way, you can expand your websites as much as you need and run any script that requires MySQL without ever being concerned that you will reach some cap and that your sites won't perform correctly. You'll also be able to freely export and import databases of various size using your Hepsia Internet hosting CP. If you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24x7x365 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans which we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, when you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there is virtually no limit for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disk drives or entire machines to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can evolve without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin instrument, which can be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks irrespective of how large they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support for help.
