Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site gathers all of its information in a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the bigger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website may not work properly as soon as you hit that limit. The effects can range from being unable to include new content to badly functioning website or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting
We use a cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the web hosting accounts on it are controlled by an independent cluster of servers, so we've made the decision to not limit the total space they may take. Every database in an account can be of any size, so the growth of your sites will not be constrained, due to the fact that we can easily keep connecting additional web servers to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion forum, for example, you shall not have to worry that too many users could join or that they could post too many comments. Using our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to export and import a database of any size with ease. If you face any problems with this task, you should check our help articles and instructional videos or you could contact our tech support team, which is available 24x7x365, including holidays & weekends.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of machines. Simply put, if you use such a plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's practically no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard drives or entire servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based web site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account may evolve without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks regardless how large they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for assistance.
