In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site stores its data inside a database. A few examples of this kind of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user comments and so on are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you add, the bigger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not perform correctly once you reach that limit. The effects can range from not being able to include new data to badly working site or even the website displaying only error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
Because of our custom cloud web hosting platform, we could offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create inside your shared hosting account. Unlike many web hosting providers that run everything on a single server, we have a whole cluster which handles only the databases and nothing else. Because of this, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible due to the fact that we can easily add more servers at any time if needed. Thus your sites could keep growing without any limits. You can import or export any database irrespective of its size via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, you can use to control your databases. If you would like support, you can always check our video tutorials or get in touch with our tech support representatives who will aid you with any database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated servers that we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of machines. Basically, if you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases simply because there's essentially no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many HDDs or entire machines to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based web site which you host in the semi-dedicated account could grow without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless how big they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support team for assistance.
