In contrast to a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site stores all its data in a database. A few examples of such Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user reviews and so on are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the more substantial the database gets and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not work correctly when you reach that limit. The results can range from not being able to include new data to badly functioning website or even the site showing only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

We use an innovative cloud web hosting platform and all databases created in the cloud hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of servers, so we have decided not to limit the total space they could take. Every database in an account can be of any size, so the development of your sites won't be constrained, since we can easily keep attaching additional machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a discussion forum, for example, you won't need to worry that way too many users may join or that they might post far too many comments. When you use our custom-made Hepsia CP, you shall be able to export or import a database of any size easily. If you encounter any difficulties with this task, you should check our help articles and video lessons or you can get in touch with our tech support team, which is available 24x7x365, including holidays & weekends.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting service that we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of machines. Basically, if you use this kind of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's essentially no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard drives or whole servers to the cluster as needed. As a result, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host in the semi-dedicated account may develop without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless of how massive they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for help.
