Unlike a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site stores all of its data inside a database. Just a couple of examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user responses and so forth are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site might not function properly once you reach that limit. The results can vary from not being able to include new data to inadequately performing site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting
We use a cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared website hosting accounts on it are managed by an independent cluster of servers, so we have made the decision to not limit the total space they can take. Every database in an account could be of any size, so the development of your Internet sites won't be constrained, due to the fact that we could keep attaching extra web servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and far better load balancing. If you run a discussion board, for example, you'll not need to worry that a great number of users may join or that they might post way too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to export and import a database of any size with no trouble. If you experience any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and video lessons or you can get in touch with our tech support team, which is available 24-7-365, including weekends and holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because our semi-dedicated server accounts use an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide you with unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. Quite the contrary, the overall functionality is improved, because a whole cluster of servers handles solely MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We could keep expanding the cluster storage and the processing power by putting in new web servers and hard drives, so you will never be restricted in regard to the size of any of your databases. You could freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia web hosting CP or you can ask our technicians to help you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to handle it.
