If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info inside a database and the larger the website gets, the more info it collects. As an example, if you start an Internet based store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs shall increase whenever you add more products. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they post, the bigger the database. If your websites gain popularity or you simply want to add more content, this can be a problem in the event that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage space. What the particular effect of geting to the limit will be depends on the script - the website could function properly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the website could be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the entire website could simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

Due to our custom cloud web hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create inside your shared website hosting account. Different from many Internet hosting companies which run everything on just a single server, we have a whole cluster that manages only the databases and nothing else. Consequently, not only is the overall performance better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite due to the fact that we could add more servers anytime if necessary. Thus your Internet sites could keep growing without any restrictions. You can easily import or export any database no matter what its size through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to manage your databases.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated plans we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and emails are handled by their own clusters of servers. To put it differently, when you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there's practically no restriction for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole machines to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account may develop without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin instrument, which can be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks irrespective of how massive they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could ask our technical support for assistance.
