Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website collects all of its information in a database. Just a few examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user comments and so forth are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site may not perform correctly when you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to add new info to badly functioning Internet site or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

If you get a website hosting through us, we will never limit the growth of any MySQL-driven website which you host in the account due to the fact that our plans feature unlimited database space. Even though huge databases could have an effect on the performance of a site irrespective of the type of hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases can take and for the overall size of a single database. You may run an online store with as many products and services as you would like or a forum without worrying that you will have to delete old posts or limit the number of registered users which you can have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel shall also enable you to import or export databases inside your account whatever their size. If you experience any difficulties with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to aid you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans which we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of machines. Basically, if you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there's essentially no restriction for the database space - we could keep adding as many HDDs or whole machines to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based website which you host in the semi-dedicated account could develop without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks no matter how big they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support team for help.
