In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all of its information in a database. Just a few examples of this kind of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the bigger the database gets and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site might not work adequately once you hit that limit. The results can range from inability to include new info to improperly performing Internet site or even the website showing only 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 part of the web hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and given that we can easily keep adding more servers to the cluster that handles them, the space you can use for your databases is practically unlimited. In this way, you may develop your Internet sites as much as you want and run any script which requires MySQL without ever worrying that you will reach some cap and that your sites will not perform correctly. Additionally, you'll be able to freely export and import databases of any size using your Hepsia website hosting CP. In case you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24x7x365 tech support team to assist you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and emails are handled by their own clusters of servers. To put it differently, if you use such a plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases simply because there's essentially no limit for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disks or entire web servers to the cluster as needed. Therefore, any MySQL-based website that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily expand without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks no matter how big they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support team for help.
