Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site stores its info in a database. Just a couple of examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback and so on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the more substantial the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not perform properly as soon as you hit that limit. The results can range from being unable to include new content to improperly performing website or even the website showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a shared hosting plan from us, we shall never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven site which you host in the account since our packages come with unlimited database space for storage. Though large databases could have an effect on the functionality of a site regardless of the type of Internet hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases could take and for the total size of an individual database. You can run a web-based store with as many products and services as you want or a forum without having to worry that you may have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users you could have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to import or export databases within your account irrespective of their size. If you experience any difficulties with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to aid you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of web servers. Put simply, when you use such a plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases simply because there's essentially no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or whole web servers to the cluster as needed. Consequently, any MySQL-based web site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily grow without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless how massive they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our technical support for help.
