In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site collects its data in a database. Just a few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user comments etc are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you add, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site may not perform properly after you hit that limit. The effects can vary from inability to add new content to inadequately performing 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 groundbreaking cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of servers, so we've chosen not to limit the total space they may take. Each database in an account can be of any size, so the expansion of your Internet sites will not be constrained, as we are able to keep connecting more and more servers to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In the event you run a community forum, for instance, you shall not have to worry that way too many users may join or that they could post way too many comments. When you use our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export and import a database of any size with ease. If you come across any issues with this task, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or you can communicate with our tech support crew, which is available round-the-clock, including holidays and weekends.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated packages that we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. Basically, if you use this kind of 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 HDDs or entire web servers to the cluster as needed. Therefore, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account may develop without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks regardless of how large they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support for help.
