Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website gathers all its information inside a database. A few examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user reviews etc are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you include, the larger the database becomes and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website might not work adequately after you reach that limit. The effects can range from being unable to add new data to badly functioning Internet site or even the website showing only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Hosting

If you get a Linux hosting from our company, we shall never limit the growth of any MySQL-driven Internet site that you host in the account due to the fact that our plans come with unlimited database space. Even though enormous databases might influence the functionality of a website whatever the type of hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all databases can take and for the total size of one database. You can run an Internet based store with as many products and services as you wish or a forum without having to worry you will have to delete old posts or limit the number of registered users you may have. Our Hepsia web hosting CP shall also permit you to import or export databases in your account irrespective of their size. If you experience any issues with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to aid you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers which we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of machines. Basically, if you use such a plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there's practically no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole machines to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can grow without any limitations. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks regardless of how large they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support team for assistance.
