Unlike a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website stores its info 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, rates, blog posts, user reviews and so on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you include, the bigger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website may not function adequately once you reach that limit. The effects can range from being unable to add new data to poorly performing Internet site or even the site showing only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting
from our company, we will never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven site that you host inside the account as our packages include unlimited database space for storage. Though large databases can affect the functionality of a site irrespective of the type of hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases could take and for the total size of a single database. You may run an online store with as many products as you would like or a forum without having to worry that you will have to delete old posts or limit the number of registered users which you may have. Our Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel shall also permit you to import or export databases inside your account regardless of their size. If you face any problems with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to aid you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our semi-dedicated server
accounts work with an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to offer unrestricted storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Quite the contrary, the overall performance is improved, simply because a whole cluster of machines handles only MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We could keep expanding the cluster storage and the computing power by incorporating new web servers and hard drives, so you will never be limited in regard to the size of any of your databases. You are able to freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or you could ask our technicians to help you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to proceed.
