If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its information in a database and the bigger the website gets, the more info it stores. For instance, if you launch an Internet store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs shall increase whenever you add more products. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they publish, the larger the database. If your websites become more popular or you would like to add more content, this might be a problem in the event that your website hosting account has limited database storage space. What the exact effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the site may work adequately, but you may not be able to add any new content; the internet site can be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your entire internet site might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting

If you obtain a web hosting from us, we shall never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven website that you host in the account due to the fact that our plans feature unlimited database space for storage. Even though huge databases might influence the overall performance of an Internet site irrespective of the type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases may take and for the total size of an individual database. You can easily run an online store with as many items as you wish or a forum without worrying that you will have to delete old posts or limit the number of registered users you could have. Our Hepsia hosting CP shall also permit you to import or export databases inside your account whatever their size. If you encounter any issues with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to assist you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of web servers. Basically, if you use such a plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases simply because there is practically no limit for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disks or entire web servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based web site that you host in the semi-dedicated account may expand without any limitations. Via the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless of how big they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support team for assistance.
