If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information within a database and the bigger the site gets, the more data it collects. As an illustration, if you launch an e-store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase any time you add more products. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they publish, the larger the database. If your sites become popular or you would like to add more content, this may become a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database space. What the exact effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site may work adequately, but you may not be able to include any new info; the site could be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your whole website might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting

We use a state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and all databases created in the shared web hosting accounts on it are controlled by an independent cluster of servers, so we have made a decision not to limit the total space they may take. Every database in an account may be of any size, so the expansion of your sites will not be restricted, given that we can easily keep connecting more and more servers to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and far better load balancing. If you run a discussion forum, for instance, you shall not need to worry that too many users may join or that they may post too many comments. When you use our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size easily. If you encounter any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and video lessons or you could contact our support crew, which is available round-the-clock, including holidays and weekends.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our semi-dedicated server accounts use an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Just the opposite, the functionality is improved, as an entire cluster of web servers handles just MySQL queries and nothing else. We can keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by putting in new machines and hard drives, so you'll never be restricted in terms of the size of any one of your databases. You could freely export or import any MySQL database through the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel or you can ask our technicians to aid you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to handle it.
