If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information inside a database and the larger the site gets, the more info it collects. As an example, if you launch an Internet store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses will increase when you add more items. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they publish, the larger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this can turn into a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the specific effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the site can work correctly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the website could be displayed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your whole site might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

All website hosting accounts bought from our company are created on our custom cloud website hosting platform where every single part of the web hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and given that we're able to keep adding more web servers to the cluster which controls them, the space that you can use for your databases is virtually unlimited. In this way, you can develop your sites as much as you would like and run any script that requires MySQL without ever having to worry that you will reach some cap and that your sites will not perform as expected. You will also be able to freely export and import databases of any size via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. In case you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24x7x365 technical 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 offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, if you use such a plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases because there is essentially no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many HDDs or whole machines to the cluster as needed. Therefore, any MySQL-based site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can develop without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless of how massive they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support team for assistance.
