Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website gathers its info in a database. A few examples of this type of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user responses and so forth are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you add, the larger the database becomes and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site might not function correctly once you reach that limit. The effects can vary from being unable to include new info to poorly working Internet site or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts purchased through our company are created on our custom cloud hosting platform where every single part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and because we're able to keep adding more servers to the cluster that handles them, the space which you could use for your databases is virtually unlimited. That way, you may grow your websites as much as you need and run any script which requires MySQL without ever having to worry that you will reach some cap and that your websites will not function correctly. You will also be able to freely export and import databases of various size through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. If you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24x7x365 tech support team to assist you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated servers we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of machines. Basically, when you use such a plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there is virtually no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or entire web servers to the cluster as needed. Consequently, any MySQL-based website which you host inside the semi-dedicated account could develop without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with several clicks regardless how big they are. If you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for help.
