In contrast to a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website collects all of its information inside a database. Just a couple of examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user comments etc are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you add, the bigger the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site might not work adequately when you hit that limit. The effects can vary from inability to add new information to improperly performing Internet site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
We use a revolutionary cloud hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are managed by a different cluster of web servers, so we've made the decision to not limit the total space they can take. Every database inside an account may be of any size, so the development of your websites shall not be limited, given that we can easily keep attaching extra machines to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and far better load balancing. If you run a discussion forum, for example, you'll not have to worry that way too many users may join or that they might post too many comments. When you use our custom Hepsia CP, you shall be able to export or import a database of any size without difficulty. If you experience any issues with this task, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or you could get in touch with our support crew, that is available round-the-clock, including weekends and holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our semi-dedicated server accounts work with an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to offer unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Quite the opposite, the efficiency is improved, as an entire cluster of servers handles only MySQL queries and nothing else. We could keep expanding the cluster storage and the computing power by adding new servers and hard disks, so you will never be restricted when it comes to the size of any one of your databases. You could freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia web hosting CP or you could ask our professionals to help you with this task if you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to proceed.
