In comparison with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site collects all its information in a database. Just a few examples of this kind of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you add, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not function properly once you hit that limit. The effects can range from not being able to include new content to badly functioning website or even the site displaying only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
We use an innovative cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases created in the shared web hosting accounts on it are handled by a different cluster of servers, so we've made the decision to not limit the total space they could take. Any database inside an account can be of any size, so the expansion of your sites won't be restricted, as we are able to keep attaching more and more servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion forum, for example, you will not need to worry that way too many users may join or that they might post way too many comments. Using our custom-made Hepsia CP, you will be able to export or import a database of any size with no trouble. If you experience any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and instructional videos or you can get in touch with our technical support crew, that's available 24/7, including weekends and holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of servers. Put simply, if you use this kind of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's essentially no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard drives or entire web servers to the cluster as needed. As a result, any MySQL-based website which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can develop without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with several clicks irrespective of how big they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support for assistance.
