In comparison with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site gathers its information in a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback and so on are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your website hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your Internet site might not work properly once you reach that limit. The end results can range from not being able to include new information to improperly functioning Internet site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts purchased from our company are created on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform where each and every part of the web hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and considering the fact that we're able to keep adding more web servers to the cluster which manages them, the space that you may use for your databases is virtually unrestricted. This way, you may grow your Internet sites as much as you need and run any script that requires MySQL without ever having to worry that you will reach some cap and that your sites will not perform adequately. In addition, you’ll be able to freely export and import databases of any size through your Hepsia hosting CP. In case you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24x7 tech support team to help you with either one of these tasks.

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 emails are handled by their own clusters of servers. Simply put, when you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases as there's practically no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard drives or whole servers to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily develop without any limits. With the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks irrespective of how large they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support for assistance.
