Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website collects its data inside 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, item listings, prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your website hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website may not work properly once you hit that limit. The effects can range from not being able to include new data to badly working site or even the site showing only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
Thanks to our custom cloud website hosting platform, we could offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create inside your shared hosting account. Different from many Internet hosting companies which run everything on just a single machine, we have an entire cluster that manages solely the databases and nothing else. Because of this, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless as we can add more web servers at any time if necessary. Thus your websites could keep growing without any limitations. You can import or export any database no matter what its size through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to control your databases. If you'd like assistance, you could always take a look at our video lessons or make contact with our support representatives who will help you with any database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, when you use this kind of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there is practically no limit for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard drives or entire web servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account may grow without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless how big they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our technical support for help.
