Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website gathers all its information inside a database. A few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you add, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website might not function properly after you reach that limit. The results can range from not being able to include new data to badly performing site or even the website showing only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a cloud plan from our company, we shall never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven Internet site that you host in the account because our plans feature unlimited database storage space. Although huge databases might influence the overall performance of a website no matter what type of Internet hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases can take and for the total size of an individual database. You may run an online store with as many products as you wish or a forum without having to worry that you may have to remove old posts or limit the number of registered users which you may have. Our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel shall also permit you to import or export databases within your account no matter their size. If you face any difficulties with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to assist you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. Put simply, when you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's virtually no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole web servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based site which you host in the semi-dedicated account can expand without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks no matter how big they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support team for assistance.
