Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site collects all of its data inside a database. A few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not perform correctly when you reach that limit. The effects can range from being unable to add new information to badly functioning site or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
Because of our custom cloud hosting platform, we can offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create in your shared web hosting account. Unlike many web hosting providers that run everything on one machine, we have an entire cluster which handles solely the databases and nothing else. Because of this, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite as we could add more machines anytime if required. In this way your sites can keep evolving without limitations. You could import or export any database irrespective of its size using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to manage your databases. If you would like support, you could always check out our instructional videos or communicate with our support representatives who will aid you with any database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of machines. In other words, if you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases simply because there is practically no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many HDDs or entire web servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can grow without any limits. With the phpMyAdmin instrument, which can be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks regardless of how big they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support team for help.
