In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all of its information in a database. A few 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 responses and so forth are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the larger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not perform correctly after you hit that limit. The consequences can range from being unable to add new information to inadequately performing Internet site or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

Due to our custom cloud website hosting platform, we are able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create inside your website hosting account. Unlike many web hosting companies that run everything on just a single web server, we have a whole cluster that handles just the databases and nothing else. Because of this, not only is the efficiency better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless as we could add more machines anytime if necessary. In this way your sites can keep growing without restrictions. You can easily import or export any database irrespective of its size using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, you can use to handle your databases. If you would like help, you may always take a look at our video tutorials or make contact with our support representatives who will help you with all database-related questions within the hour.

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 managed by their own clusters of servers. Put simply, if you use such a plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there is virtually no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many HDDs or entire machines to the cluster as needed. As a result, any MySQL-based web site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can grow without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with several clicks no matter how large they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for help.
