In contrast to a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website gathers all of its info in a database. Just a couple of examples of this type of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you include, the larger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site may not perform correctly after you hit that limit. The end results can range from inability to include new information to poorly performing website or even the website showing only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Hosting

All hosting accounts purchased through us are created on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform where each and every part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and because we can easily keep adding extra web servers to the cluster which manages them, the space which you can use for your databases is virtually unrestricted. This way, you can expand your websites as much as you would like and run any script which requires MySQL without ever worrying that you'll reach some cap and that your Internet sites will not function correctly. You'll also be able to freely export and import databases of various size through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. If you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24x7x365 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting service that we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. Put simply, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there is practically no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or whole servers to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based website that you host inside the semi-dedicated account may develop without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks no matter how large they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for assistance.
