Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers its information inside a database. A few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user comments and so on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the bigger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site might not perform properly as soon as you reach that limit. The end results can range from being unable to include new information to poorly functioning website or even the site displaying only error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting accounts purchased through us are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where each part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and considering the fact that we can easily keep adding more servers to the cluster that handles them, the space that you can use for your databases is practically unlimited. That way, you can easily expand your sites as much as you would like and run any script that requires MySQL without ever worrying you'll reach some cap and that your Internet sites won't work correctly. You'll be able to freely export and import databases of various size using your Hepsia Internet hosting CP. Provided you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24x7x365 tech support to assist you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated plans we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of web servers. Simply put, when you use this kind of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's practically no limitation for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard drives or entire web servers to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can expand without any restrictions. With the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia Internet hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks no matter how big they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support for assistance.
