Unlike a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all its data in a database. Just a few examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user comments etc are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site may not work properly once you reach that limit. The end results can vary from inability to add new info to improperly performing site or even the website displaying only error messages and not being accessible at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting accounts acquired from our company are created on our custom cloud hosting platform where each part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and because we can keep adding more servers to the cluster that controls them, the space you may use for your databases is basically unrestricted. This way, you can grow your Internet sites as much as you want and run any script which requires MySQL without ever being worried that you'll reach some cap and that your sites won't work adequately. You'll also be able to freely export and import databases of any size using your Hepsia web hosting CP. Provided you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24/7 technical support to help you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated hosting service that we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and email messages 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 as there's virtually no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or whole servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based website that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily grow without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless of how massive they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support team for help.
