Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site stores all its data inside a database. A few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site might not perform properly when you reach that limit. The effects can vary from not being able to add new content to inadequately performing website or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Web Hosting

If you purchase a cloud web hosting plan from us, we shall never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven website that you host inside the account as our packages come with unlimited database storage space. Despite the fact that large databases may influence the overall performance of a website irrespective of the type of Internet hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases can take and for the total size of an individual database. You could run an Internet based store with as many products as you wish or a forum without worrying that you may have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users you can have. Our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will also permit you to import or export databases within your account irrespective of their size. If you experience any problems with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to assist you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans that we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, if you use such a plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there is practically no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many HDDs or whole web servers to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based web site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can evolve without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks no matter how big they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support for help.
