In contrast to a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven 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, rates, blog posts, user responses and so on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you add, the bigger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website may not function properly as soon as you reach that limit. The end results can range from being unable to include new data to poorly functioning site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are controlled by a different cluster of servers, so we've made the decision not to limit the total space they could take. Any database in an account may be of any size, so the growth of your Internet sites shall not be constrained, as we could keep connecting additional machines to the cluster if required for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In case you run a discussion board, for instance, you'll not have to worry that too many users could join or that they might post too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export and import a database of any size without difficulty. If you come across any issues with this task, you should check our help articles and video tutorials or you could contact our support team, that's available round-the-clock, including holidays & weekends.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting we provide 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 such a plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there is practically no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many HDDs or entire web servers to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host in the semi-dedicated account may grow without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which could be accessed through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks irrespective of how massive they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for help.
