In contrast to a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website gathers all its information inside a database. Just a few examples of such Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user responses and so forth are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you add, the larger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site may not work adequately after you reach that limit. The effects can vary from inability to include new info to poorly functioning website or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Website Hosting

All cloud website hosting accounts purchased from us are created on our custom cloud website hosting platform where each and every part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and considering the fact that we can easily keep adding more machines to the cluster that handles them, the space you may use for your databases is practically unlimited. This way, you could develop your Internet sites as much as you need and run any script that requires MySQL without ever being concerned that you'll reach some cap and that your sites won't function correctly. Additionally, you'll be able to freely export and import databases of various size through your Hepsia website hosting CP. In case you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24/7/365 tech support to assist you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated servers we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, if you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there is virtually no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many HDDs or whole machines to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based website which you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily evolve without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks irrespective of how big they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support for assistance.
