Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site collects its data in a database. Just a few examples of such Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you add, the larger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website might not function adequately after you hit that limit. The results can range from being unable to add new content to inadequately performing Internet site or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting accounts purchased from us are created on our custom cloud website hosting platform where each part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and given that we can keep adding additional web servers to the cluster which handles them, the space you can use for your databases is practically unrestricted. Thus, you can grow your websites as much as you would like and run any script which requires MySQL without ever worrying that you'll reach some cap and that your Internet sites won't work adequately. Additionally, you'll be able to freely export and import databases of any size using your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. If you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24x7x365 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Linux semi-dedicated servers we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, if you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there's practically no limit for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard drives or whole web servers to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can expand without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks regardless of how massive they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support for help.
