In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site stores all of its info inside a database. Just a few examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user reviews etc are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the larger the database becomes and if your website hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not function properly when you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from being unable to include new information to improperly functioning Internet site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of servers, so we've decided to not limit the total space they may take. Every database in an account can be of any size, so the development of your sites will not be constrained, as we could keep attaching extra web servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion board, for example, you shall not have to worry that way too many users may join or that they could post too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom Hepsia CP, you will be able to export or import a database of any size with no trouble. If you come across any difficulties with this task, you should check our help articles and instructional videos or you can get hold of our support team, that is available 24x7x365, including holidays & weekends.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, all of your MySQL-based script apps will work perfectly because we don't impose any restrictions on the size your databases may have. We have achieved that by working with a custom-built cloud platform where the files, databases and emails run on different clusters of servers, not on single machines. This way, the system resources of a specific cluster are virtually limitless because we can add more hard disks or web servers anytime if necessary. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated accounts, will enable you to export and import databases of any size without difficulty. If you use our hosting services, your websites can expand without any limits, allowing you to expand your web presence and get a lot of new visitors and potential clients.
