Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website collects all of its information inside a database. A few examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the more substantial the database gets and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website might not perform adequately once you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from being unable to include new data to poorly functioning Internet site or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

If you buy a website hosting from us, we will never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven site that you host in the account because our plans include unlimited database storage space. Despite the fact that huge databases might affect the performance of a site regardless of the type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases can take and for the total size of an individual database. You could run a web-based store with as many products and services as you wish or a forum without having to worry you will have to remove old posts or limit the number of registered users which you may have. Our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel shall also permit you to import or export databases within your account irrespective of their size. If you face any difficulties with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to assist you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers which we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of machines. Simply put, when you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there is virtually no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many HDDs or entire servers to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account may develop without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks irrespective of how big they are. If you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support team for help.
