If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data in a database and the more substantial the Internet site becomes, the more information it gathers. For instance, if you start a web-based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs shall increase any time you add more goods. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they publish, the bigger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you simply want to add more content, this might develop into a problem in the event that your website hosting account has limited database storage area. What the exact effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site can work correctly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the site may be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your entire internet site may simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting
We use a state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and all databases created in the shared website hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of servers, so we've decided not to limit the total space they may take. Every database inside an account can be of any size, so the expansion of your websites won't be constrained, given that we can keep connecting more and more servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and better load balancing. If you run a discussion board, for example, you won't have to worry that a great number of users could join or that they could post too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export or import a database of any size effortlessly. If you experience any problems with this task, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or you can get hold of our technical support team, which is available 24/7, including weekends & holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated hosting plans we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of servers. Put simply, when you use such a plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases simply because there is virtually no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard drives or whole web servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily develop without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks no matter how big they are.
