If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info in a database and the larger the website gets, the more data it collects. As an illustration, if you start an electronic store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase when you add more goods. The same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they submit, the larger the database. If your Internet sites become more popular or you just want to include more content, this can turn into a problem in case that your website hosting account has limited database space. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site could work properly, but you may not be able to add any new information; the internet site could be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the whole site may simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts acquired through our company are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where each and every part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and because we're able to keep adding additional web servers to the cluster that controls them, the space you could use for your databases is practically unrestricted. Thus, you can easily develop your websites as much as you need and run any script that requires MySQL without ever being worried that you will reach some cap and that your sites won't work correctly. In addition, you’ll be able to freely export and import databases of various size through your Hepsia hosting CP. Provided you have any questions in this matter, you may ask our 24/7 tech support to aid you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated services that we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of servers. In other words, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases simply because there is virtually no restriction for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard drives or entire machines to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based web site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account may develop without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless how big they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you could ask our technical support for assistance.
