Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website collects all of its data in a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user reviews etc are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website might not perform correctly when you reach that limit. The effects can range from being unable to add new info to badly performing site or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Hosting

If you buy a Linux hosting through our company, we shall never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven site which you host inside the account since our packages feature unlimited database space for storage. Though huge databases could influence the performance of a website whatever the type of web hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases may take and for the overall size of 1 database. You can run a web-based store with as many products as you would like or a forum without having to worry you will have to remove old posts or limit the number of registered users which you could have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also enable you to import or export databases within your account whatever their size. If you encounter any problems with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to aid you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated servers we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of web servers. In other words, when you use this kind of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases simply because there is essentially no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many HDDs or entire servers to the cluster as needed. Therefore, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily expand without any limits. With the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks irrespective of how big they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for assistance.
