If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its information in a database and the larger the Internet site gets, the more data it stores. As an example, if you launch an online store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more items. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they publish, the larger the database. If your websites gain popularity or you just want to include more content, this might become a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database space. What the specific effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the website could function correctly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the site can be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole website might go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Web Hosting
All cloud web hosting accounts purchased through us are created on our custom cloud website 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 since we can easily keep adding extra machines to the cluster which controls them, the space that you may use for your databases is practically unrestricted. In this way, you could expand your websites as much as you would like and run any script which requires MySQL without ever being worried that you'll reach some cap and that your websites will not function as expected. You will also be able to freely export and import databases of various size through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. 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 Servers
The semi-dedicated servers that we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, when you use such a plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases simply because there's virtually no restriction for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disks or entire machines to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host in the semi-dedicated account can expand without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks regardless how big they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you can ask our technical support for help.
