In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website gathers all its data in a database. A few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you include, the bigger the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not work correctly once you reach that limit. The consequences can range from inability to add new info to inadequately working Internet site or even the website showing only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting accounts acquired through our company are created on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform where every part of the web hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and given that we're able to keep adding extra machines to the cluster that manages them, the space you could use for your databases is practically unlimited. In this way, you could grow your websites as much as you would like and run any script which requires MySQL without ever being concerned you'll reach some cap and that your Internet sites will not function correctly. You will also be able to freely export and import databases of various size via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. If you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24x7x365 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our semi-dedicated server accounts work with 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 contrary, the overall efficiency is improved, as a whole cluster of machines handles solely MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can keep expanding the cluster storage and the processing power by adding new machines and hard disk drives, so you will never be limited in terms of the size of any one of your databases. You can freely export or import any MySQL database through the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia hosting CP or you could ask our experts to assist you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you are not sure what you should do.
