Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website gathers all its information inside a database. Just a few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user reviews and so forth are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you add, the larger the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site might not perform properly when you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to add new information to inadequately functioning website or even the site showing only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
We use a cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared web hosting accounts on it are controlled by a different cluster of web servers, so we've made the decision not to limit the total space they can take. Any database in an account may be of any size, so the growth of your sites won't be restricted, since we are able to keep connecting additional servers to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion board, for instance, you won't need to worry that a great number of users could join or that they might post far too many comments. When you use our custom-made Hepsia CP, you will be able to export or import a database of any size with no trouble. If you face any issues with this task, you can check our help articles and video lessons or you may get in touch with our support team, that is available 24/7, including holidays & weekends.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated servers we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of web servers. In other words, if you use such a plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there is virtually no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole web servers to the cluster as needed. As a result, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can evolve without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks irrespective of how large they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for help.
