If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information inside a database and the bigger the Internet site becomes, the more data it collects. For example, if you start an online store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase as you add more items. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they publish, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites become popular or you would like to add more content, this might be a problem in case that your website hosting account has limited database space. What the particular effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the site can work properly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the site can be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the entire website could simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
We use a revolutionary cloud website hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are managed by a different cluster of servers, so we've chosen to not limit the total space they may take. Any database inside an account could be of any size, so the expansion of your sites won't be limited, as we can easily keep connecting additional servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion forum, for example, you will not need to worry that way too many users could join or that they might post way too many comments. Using our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export or import a database of any size without difficulty. If you face any issues with this task, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or you may get hold of our support crew, which is available 24-7-365, including holidays and weekends.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our semi-dedicated server accounts employ an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide you with unrestricted storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Quite the opposite, the functionality is improved, due to the fact that a whole cluster of servers handles solely MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can easily keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by incorporating new machines and hard disks, so you will never be limited in terms of the size of any of your databases. You’ll be able to freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia Internet hosting CP or you can ask our technicians to help you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you aren't sure how to proceed.
