Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site stores all its information inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you add, the bigger the database becomes and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site may not work properly after you reach that limit. The results can range from being unable to include new content to badly performing Internet site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a revolutionary cloud website hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are controlled by a separate cluster of servers, so we've decided not to limit the total space they may take. Each database inside an account may be of any size, so the expansion of your sites won't be constrained, as we could keep attaching more and more web servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a community forum, for example, you'll not have to worry that a great number of users could join or that they may post far too many comments. When you use our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size without difficulty. If you face any difficulties with this task, you can look at our help articles and instructional videos or you may get in touch with our tech support crew, that's available 24/7/365, including holidays & weekends.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since our semi-dedicated server accounts take advantage of an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide you with unrestricted storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. Quite the contrary, the overall efficiency is improved, simply because an entire cluster of machines handles solely MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by putting in new servers and hard disks, so you'll never be confined in terms of the size of any of your databases. You may freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia Internet hosting CP or you can ask our qualified professionals to help you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you are not sure what you should do.
