In comparison with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all of its info in a database. A few examples of such Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, rates, blog posts, user reviews etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you add, the larger the database becomes and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site may not function properly after you reach that limit. The effects can vary from being unable to add new info to badly working Internet site or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a shared plan through our company, we will never limit the development of any MySQL-driven Internet site which you host inside the account due to the fact that our plans include unlimited database storage space. Although massive databases can have an effect on the functionality of an Internet site irrespective of the type of Internet hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all databases could take and for the overall size of a single database. You could run an Internet 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 can have. Our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel shall also permit you to import or export databases within your account no matter their size. If you encounter any problems with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to assist you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans which we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. Simply put, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases simply because there's essentially no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many HDDs or whole web servers to the cluster as needed. Consequently, any MySQL-based web site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account may evolve without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which could be accessed through the Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks no matter how massive they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support for help.
