Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site stores all of its data in 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 or service listings, prices, blog posts, user comments etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the bigger the database gets and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site might not work adequately once you hit that limit. The effects can range from inability to add new data to badly working Internet site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
We use an innovative cloud website hosting platform and all databases created in the shared web hosting accounts on it are handled by a different cluster of web servers, so we have decided not to limit the total space they can take. Every database in an account may be of any size, so the growth of your Internet sites will not be restricted, due to the fact that we can keep connecting more and more machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In case you run a community forum, for instance, you will not have to worry that a great number of users may join or that they might post too many comments. When you use our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export and import a database of any size with no trouble. If you face any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and instructional videos or you may contact our technical support crew, that is available 24-7-365, including weekends and holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because our semi-dedicated server accounts work with an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to offer unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Just the opposite, the performance is improved, because a whole cluster of servers handles just MySQL queries and nothing else. We could keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by incorporating new web servers and hard disks, so you will never be restricted in regard to the size of any of your databases. You can freely export or import any MySQL database through the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel or you can ask our qualified professionals to assist you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you aren't sure how to handle it.
