If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its information in a database and the more substantial the website gets, the more data it gathers. For instance, if you start an Internet based store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase whenever you add more products. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they submit, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites become popular or you just want to add more content, this might turn into a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database storage area. What the specific effect of geting to the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site could perform adequately, but you may not be able to add any new information; the site may be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your entire internet site might go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting accounts purchased through us are created on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform where each part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and since we can easily keep adding additional machines to the cluster that handles them, the space that you can use for your databases is practically unrestricted. This way, you can expand your websites as much as you would like and run any script which requires MySQL without ever having to worry that you will reach some cap and that your websites will not work adequately. You'll also be able to freely export and import databases of any size using your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In case you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24/7 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated packages that we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, when you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases as there is virtually no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many HDDs or whole servers to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based website that you host inside the semi-dedicated account may evolve without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks regardless of how massive they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support team for assistance.
