In comparison with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site stores all of its information in a database. A few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user responses and so forth are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the bigger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site might not perform properly when you hit that limit. The end results can vary from not being able to include new content to poorly performing website or even the website showing only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Website Hosting
All cloud website hosting accounts purchased from our company are created on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform where each part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and since we can easily keep adding additional servers to the cluster that manages them, the space you may use for your databases is virtually unrestricted. That way, you may grow your websites as much as you want and run any script that requires MySQL without ever worrying that you'll reach some cap and that your websites will not work as expected. In addition, you’ll be able to freely export and import databases of any size through your Hepsia Internet hosting CP. If you have any questions in this matter, you may ask our 24x7x365 tech support to aid you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated plans we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of machines. Simply put, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there's virtually no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disks or entire machines to the cluster as needed. Therefore, any MySQL-based site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily grow without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks regardless how large they are. If you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support team for help.
