Unlike a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers its information inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you add, the bigger the database becomes and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not work properly when you reach that limit. The end results can vary from being unable to include new data to improperly performing site or even the website displaying only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
If you get a shared web hosting plan from our company, we will never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven site which you host in the account because our plans include unlimited database space. Although large databases might affect the overall performance of a website irrespective of the type of hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases might take and for the total size of an individual database. You can easily run an Internet store with as many items as you would like or a forum without having to worry that you will have to remove old posts or limit the number of registered users which you may have. Our Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel will also enable you to import or export databases inside your account no matter their size. If you experience any issues with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to help you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because 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 while not compromising the quality of the service. Quite the opposite, the overall functionality is improved, because a whole cluster of machines handles solely MySQL queries and nothing else. We could keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by adding new web servers and hard disks, so you will never be restricted when it comes to the size of any one of your databases. You can freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or you could ask our qualified professionals to aid you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to handle it.
