In contrast to a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website gathers all its information in a database. Just a few examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user responses and so on are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your website hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site might not function properly as soon as you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to include new information to badly working website or even the site displaying only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting

If you obtain a web hosting from our company, we will never restrict the growth of any MySQL-driven site which you host inside the account as our plans include unlimited database space. Though huge databases might affect the functionality of a site regardless of the type of web hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases might take and for the overall size of one database. You can run an Internet store with as many items as you want or a forum without worrying you will have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users which you can have. Our Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel will also permit you to import or export databases within your account no matter their size. If you experience any difficulties with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to help you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers which we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of servers. Simply put, if you use such a plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there's virtually no restriction for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole web servers to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based web site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account may grow without any limitations. Via the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia hosting CP, you shall be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks regardless of how massive they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support team for assistance.
