If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info inside a database and the bigger the site gets, the more information it gathers. For instance, if you start an electronic store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs shall increase any time you add more goods. The same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they publish, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites become more popular or you simply want to add more content, this could become a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database storage space. The exact effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the site may perform adequately, but you may not be able to include any new information; the website may be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your whole internet site might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting

We use a state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform and all databases created in the web hosting accounts on it are managed by a separate cluster of web servers, so we've made a decision not to limit the total space they could take. Every database inside an account can be of any size, so the development of your sites won't be limited, due to the fact that we could keep attaching additional machines to the cluster if required for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In case you run a discussion board, for instance, you'll not need to worry that too many users could join or that they may post too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export and import a database of any size without difficulty. If you face any issues with this task, you can check our help articles and video lessons or you could contact our tech support crew, that's available 24x7x365, including weekends and holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans that we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of servers. In other words, when you use this type of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there is essentially no limit for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based website which you host in the semi-dedicated account could grow without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with several clicks regardless how big they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our technical support for assistance.
