In contrast to a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers 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 or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user comments etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you add, the larger the database gets and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not perform adequately as soon as you reach that limit. The results can range from being unable to include new information to improperly functioning website or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting
All website hosting accounts acquired through us are created on our custom cloud website hosting platform where each part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and because we're able to keep adding additional web servers to the cluster which controls them, the space which you can use for your databases is virtually unrestricted. This way, you could grow your websites as much as you would like and run any script which requires MySQL without ever having to worry you'll reach some cap and that your sites will not perform properly. In addition, you’ll be able to freely export and import databases of various size through your Hepsia web hosting CP. Provided you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24/7/365 tech support to help you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting services we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and emails are handled by their own clusters of web servers. In other words, if you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases simply because there's virtually no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or whole web servers to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based web site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can evolve without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks regardless of how massive they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support for help.
