If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its information within a database and the bigger the Internet site gets, the more info it gathers. As an illustration, if you start a web store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase whenever you add more items. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they publish, the bigger the database. If your Internet sites become more popular or you would like to include more content, this can be a problem in case that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage space. What the exact effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site could work adequately, but you may not be able to include any new content; the site may be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your entire site may simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

We use an innovative cloud hosting platform and all databases set up in the website hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of web servers, so we've made a decision not to limit the total space they can take. Any database inside an account could be of any size, so the expansion of your websites will not be limited, due to the fact that we can easily keep attaching more and more machines to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and better load balancing. In the event you run a community forum, for example, you'll not need to worry that too many users may join or that they might post too many comments. Using our custom Hepsia CP, you will be able to export and import a database of any size with ease. If you come across any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and video tutorials or you could communicate with our technical support team, which is available 24x7, including holidays and weekends.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated packages that we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of web servers. Put simply, if you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases as there's virtually no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole web servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host in the semi-dedicated account can expand without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin tool, which could be accessed through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks no matter how massive they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for assistance.
