In contrast to a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site collects all its data in a database. Just a couple of examples of this type of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user comments and so forth are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you include, the larger the database gets and if your website hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site may not perform correctly when you reach that limit. The consequences can range from inability to add new data to improperly performing Internet site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting accounts purchased from us are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where every single part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and since we can keep adding additional web servers to the cluster which manages them, the space which you may use for your databases is practically unlimited. Thus, you may expand your Internet sites as much as you want and run any script that requires MySQL without ever being worried that you'll reach some cap and that your Internet sites will not perform adequately. You'll be able to freely export and import databases of any size using your Hepsia Internet hosting CP. If you have any questions in this matter, you may ask our 24x7 tech support team to aid you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of web servers. Basically, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there's practically no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole machines to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based web site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily expand without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks regardless how large they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support for help.
