In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all its information in a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user comments and so on are stored 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 website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website might not work properly when you hit that limit. The results can range from being unable to include new data to inadequately functioning Internet site or even the site showing only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting accounts bought from our company are created on our custom cloud Internet 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 additional web servers to the cluster that controls them, the space which you could use for your databases is basically unrestricted. In this way, you can easily grow your websites as much as you want and run any script that requires MySQL without ever having to worry that you'll reach some cap and that your websites will not work properly. You'll also be able to freely export and import databases of any size through your Hepsia hosting CP. If you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24x7x365 tech support to aid you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and email messages are managed by their own clusters of web servers. In other words, if you use such a plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there is virtually no limit for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disk drives or entire servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based website which you host in the semi-dedicated account may develop without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, 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 could always ask our tech support for assistance.
