Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website collects all its information in a database. Just a few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses etc are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you add, the bigger the database gets and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site may not perform adequately after you reach that limit. The results can range from being unable to include new content to poorly performing Internet site or even the website displaying only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are managed by a different cluster of web servers, so we've made a decision to not limit the total space they may take. Any database inside an account could be of any size, so the development of your websites will not be limited, since we can keep connecting extra machines to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and better load balancing. In case you run a community forum, for example, you shall not need to worry that way too many users could join or that they might post too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom Hepsia CP, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size easily. If you experience any difficulties with this task, you can look at our help articles and video lessons or you may communicate with our support team, that is available round-the-clock, including holidays & weekends.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will not have any issues with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from our company due to the fact that in contrast to many other companies, we don't run everything on one machine. Instead, we use a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of servers is dedicated to managing the databases of our customers. When additional power or space is needed, we can simply attach more machines or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the disk space is virtually inexhaustible. With our services, you could expand your web sites or popularize them as much as you would like without worrying that your MySQL databases shall expand too much. Irrespective of the size of a particular database, you will be able to export or import it with ease through your web hosting Control Panel.
