Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site stores its information in a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user responses etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you add, the more substantial the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site may not work adequately as soon as you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from not being able to add new content to badly functioning website or even the site showing only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts acquired through us are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where every part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and since we can keep adding more servers to the cluster which manages them, the space which you could use for your databases is practically unrestricted. This way, you may develop your sites as much as you need and run any script that requires MySQL without ever being concerned that you'll reach some cap and that your websites won't work correctly. In addition, you’ll be able to freely export and import databases of various size using your Hepsia hosting CP. In case you have any questions in this matter, you may ask our 24x7x365 tech support to help you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of web servers. Simply put, if you use this kind of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there is essentially no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole machines to the cluster as needed. Consequently, any MySQL-based site which you host in the semi-dedicated account may evolve without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks no matter how large they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our technical support for help.
