In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site stores its data in a database. A few examples of this kind of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, rates, blog posts, user reviews etc 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 website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not work adequately when you reach that limit. The results can range from inability to add new info to badly working site or even the website displaying only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Web Hosting
All cloud web hosting accounts purchased through our company are created on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform where each part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and because we can easily keep adding more machines to the cluster that handles them, the space that you may use for your databases is practically unrestricted. In this way, you can easily expand your websites as much as you would like and run any script which requires MySQL without ever being worried that you'll reach some cap and that your websites will not perform properly. You will also be able to freely export and import databases of any size using your Hepsia website hosting CP. If you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24x7 tech support to help you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of machines. Put simply, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases simply because there is practically no restriction for the database space - we could keep adding as many HDDs or whole web servers to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily grow without any limits. With the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with several clicks no matter how big they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support team for assistance.
