In contrast to a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site stores all of its data inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user comments etc are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site might not function adequately when you hit that limit. The end results can range from not being able to add new content to poorly working website or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

We use a revolutionary cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared website hosting accounts on it are handled by an independent cluster of servers, so we have decided not to limit the total space they may take. Each database inside an account can be of any size, so the expansion of your Internet sites won't be constrained, as we can keep connecting additional web servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In case you run a discussion forum, for example, you will not need to worry that too many users could join or that they might post far too many comments. When you use our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to export and import a database of any size effortlessly. If you come across any problems with this task, you can check our help articles and instructional videos or you can communicate with our tech support crew, which is available 24/7/365, including weekends & holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

As our semi-dedicated server accounts employ an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Quite the contrary, the overall functionality is improved, due to the fact that an entire cluster of machines handles just MySQL queries and nothing else. We could keep expanding the cluster storage and the processing power by putting in new machines and hard drives, so you'll never be limited in regard to the size of any of your databases. You are able to freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia web hosting CP or you could ask our technicians to help you with this task if you have no previous experience and you are not sure what you should do.
