Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site stores its data inside a database. A few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not function properly as soon as you hit that limit. The consequences can range from inability to include new information to improperly working website or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Website Hosting

All cloud website hosting accounts bought from us are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where every part of the web hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and considering the fact that we're able to keep adding extra web servers to the cluster which handles them, the space that you could use for your databases is virtually unrestricted. That way, you could grow your Internet sites as much as you want and run any script which requires MySQL without ever having to worry you'll reach some cap and that your Internet sites will not perform adequately. You'll be able to freely export and import databases of various size via your Hepsia web hosting CP. Provided you have any questions in this matter, you may ask our 24x7x365 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans that we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of servers. Simply put, if you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases as there is essentially no restriction for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disks or whole web servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily expand without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks regardless how big they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for help.
