Unlike a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site stores all of its information in a database. A few examples of this type of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user reviews and so on are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the more substantial the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your Internet site might not work correctly as soon as you hit that limit. The results can vary from inability to include new content to inadequately performing Internet site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Website Hosting

All cloud website hosting accounts purchased from us are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where each and every part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and given that we can easily keep adding extra servers to the cluster which handles them, the space which you could use for your databases is basically unlimited. Thus, you can easily develop your Internet sites as much as you want and run any script which requires MySQL without ever having to worry that you'll reach some cap and that your websites will not perform properly. Additionally, you'll be able to freely export and import databases of any size through your Hepsia Internet hosting CP. If you have any questions in this matter, you may ask our 24x7x365 tech support to aid you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of servers. Basically, when you use such a 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 can keep adding as many HDDs or whole web servers to the cluster as needed. Therefore, any MySQL-based website which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily expand without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks no matter how large they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support team for help.
