Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website gathers all of its data in a database. Just a couple of examples of this type of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user reviews and so forth 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 may have, your Internet site might not perform properly as soon as you reach that limit. The consequences can vary from not being able to add new content to inadequately working website or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
Thanks to our custom cloud hosting platform, we could offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create inside your shared hosting account. Unlike many hosting companies which run everything on one server, we have a whole cluster which manages only the databases and nothing else. Consequently, not only is the overall performance better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite due to the fact that we could add more machines at any time if needed. Thus your websites can keep growing with no limits. You could import or export any database irrespective of its size through the Hepsia hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to manage your databases. If you want help, you may always check out our instructional videos or get in touch with our tech support representatives who will aid you with all database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because our semi-dedicated server accounts employ an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to offer unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. Quite the opposite, the performance is improved, due to the fact that an entire cluster of machines handles just MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can easily keep expanding the cluster storage and the processing power by incorporating new web servers and hard drives, so you'll never be confined in regard to the size of any one of your databases. You are able to freely export or import any MySQL database through the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or you could ask our experts to assist you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you aren't sure how to handle it.
