In contrast to a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site collects all of its information in a database. Just a couple of examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site might not work adequately as soon as you reach that limit. The effects can range from being unable to include new info to inadequately functioning Internet site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting accounts bought from our company are created on our custom cloud hosting platform where every single part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and since we can keep adding more web servers to the cluster that manages them, the space which you can use for your databases is basically unlimited. This way, you may expand your websites as much as you want and run any script which requires MySQL without ever being worried you'll reach some cap and that your websites will not work properly. In addition, you’ll be able to freely export and import databases of any size via your Hepsia hosting CP. Provided you have any questions in this matter, you may ask our 24x7 tech support team to help you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

Since our semi-dedicated server accounts use an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide you with limitless storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account without compromising the quality of the service. On the contrary, the functionality is improved, simply because a whole cluster of web servers handles only MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We could keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by adding new web servers and hard disk drives, so you'll never be restricted in terms of the size of any one of your databases. You can freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia hosting CP or you could ask our professionals to aid you with this task if you have no previous experience and you are not sure what you should do.
