If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info inside a database and the larger the website gets, the more data it collects. For example, if you launch a web store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase whenever you add more products. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they post, the larger the database. If your websites become popular or you just want to include more content, this may be a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the exact effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the site can work adequately, but you may not be able to add any new information; the website could be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire site could simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting accounts bought 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 aren't an exception and given that we can easily keep adding additional servers to the cluster which handles them, the space that you may use for your databases is practically unlimited. This way, you can easily expand your Internet sites as much as you would like and run any script that requires MySQL without ever being concerned that you'll reach some cap and that your sites will not function properly. You'll also be able to freely export and import databases of any size through your Hepsia Internet hosting CP. Provided 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 Hosting
Since our semi-dedicated server accounts employ an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to offer unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Quite the opposite, the performance is improved, because a whole cluster of web servers handles just MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by attaching new machines and hard drives, so you'll never be restricted in regard to the size of any one of your databases. You’ll be able to freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel or you may ask our qualified professionals to assist you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you aren't sure what you should do.
