In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site collects its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, rates, blog posts, user reviews etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site may not function correctly as soon as you reach that limit. The effects can vary from not being able to include new data to badly performing website or even the site displaying only error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting
Because of our custom cloud hosting platform, we are able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create in your shared website hosting account. Unlike many hosting companies that run everything on one machine, we have an entire cluster which manages only the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also immense as we can easily add more web servers at any time if required. Thus your sites can keep expanding without limits. You can import or export any database no matter its size using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to manage your databases. If you would like support, you could always check our educational videos or get in touch with our support representatives who will assist you with any database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. Put simply, if you use this kind of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases because there's practically no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or entire machines to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account may develop without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia website hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks irrespective of how massive they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for help.
