Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site stores all of its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user reviews and so on are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site might not work correctly after you hit that limit. The effects can vary from inability to add new info to poorly working website or even the site showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting

We use an innovative cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the web hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of servers, so we have chosen not to limit the total space they can take. Any database inside an account could be of any size, so the expansion of your sites will not be constrained, since we are able to keep attaching additional servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and better load balancing. In case you run a community forum, for example, you will not need to worry that way too many users could join or that they could post too many comments. Using our custom Hepsia CP, you will be able to export or import a database of any size with ease. If you experience any problems with this task, you should check our help articles and video tutorials or you could contact our technical support crew, that's available 24/7/365, including weekends & holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting packages which we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of servers. Simply put, when you use this type of plan, you will 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 HDDs or whole web servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account may develop without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks regardless of how large they are. If you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our technical support for help.
