Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site collects all its information inside a database. Just a few examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user comments and so on are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the larger the database becomes and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site might not function correctly once you hit that limit. The effects can range from being unable to add new info to badly functioning Internet site or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting accounts acquired through our company are created on our custom cloud website hosting platform where every part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and since we can easily keep adding more web servers to the cluster that manages them, the space which you could use for your databases is virtually unlimited. In this way, you can easily expand your Internet sites as much as you want and run any script that requires MySQL without ever being worried that you will reach some cap and that your Internet sites will not function adequately. You will also be able to freely export and import databases of various size through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. If you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24/7 tech support to aid you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans that we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. Simply put, when you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there's practically no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard drives or whole web servers to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account could grow without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed through the Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks no matter how large they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our technical support for assistance.
