In comparison with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site stores all of its information in a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses etc are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you include, the larger the database gets and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site may not work adequately once you reach that limit. The effects can range from being unable to add new information to improperly functioning Internet site or even the site showing only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Hosting

We use a state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and all databases created in the hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of web servers, so we have made a decision not to limit the total space they may take. Any database inside an account may be of any size, so the growth of your Internet sites won't be constrained, as we are able to keep attaching more and more servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a discussion forum, for instance, you'll not need to worry that too many users may join or that they might post way too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to export and import a database of any size with ease. If you encounter any issues with this task, you can look at our help articles and video tutorials or you can get hold of our tech support team, that is available 24x7, including holidays & weekends.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because our semi-dedicated server accounts employ an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to offer limitless storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. Quite the contrary, the efficiency is improved, simply because a whole cluster of machines handles just MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We could keep expanding the cluster storage and the processing power by adding new web servers and hard disk drives, so you will never be confined in terms of the size of any one of your databases. You may freely export or import any MySQL database through the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia Internet hosting CP or you can ask our experts to help you with this task if you have no previous experience and you are not sure what to do.
