If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its data in a database and the larger the website becomes, the more data it collects. For example, if you launch an e-store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase when you add more items. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they publish, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites gain popularity or you would like to include more content, this could turn into a problem in case that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage space. What the particular effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the website may perform adequately, but you may not be able to add any new info; the site may be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire website may simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use an innovative cloud hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are controlled by an independent cluster of web servers, so we've made a decision not to limit the total space they can take. Any database in an account can be of any size, so the development of your sites will not be constrained, due to the fact that we are able to keep attaching more and more machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In the event you run a community forum, for instance, you'll not have to worry that a great number of users may join or that they could post far too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom-made Hepsia CP, you'll be able to export and import a database of any size without difficulty. If you face any issues with this task, you should check our help articles and instructional videos or you could get in touch with our support crew, that is available 24-7, including holidays and weekends.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated service that we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of servers. Simply put, if you use this kind of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's practically no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard drives or entire servers to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily develop without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless of how big they are. If you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support for help.
