In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website stores its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user responses etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not work adequately after you hit that limit. The consequences can range from being unable to include new info to badly working website or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
We use a revolutionary cloud web hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are managed by an independent cluster of web servers, so we've made the decision not to limit the total space they could take. Each database in an account could be of any size, so the expansion of your websites won't be constrained, since we can easily keep attaching more and more machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion forum, for example, you'll not have to worry that too many users could join or that they may post far too many comments. Using our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size with ease. If you experience any problems with this task, you should check our help articles and instructional videos or you could contact our support team, which is available 24x7, including weekends & holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because our semi-dedicated server accounts use an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. Quite the opposite, the functionality is improved, due to the fact that a whole cluster of servers handles solely MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We could keep expanding the cluster storage and the processing power by attaching new web servers and hard disk drives, so you'll never be restricted in terms of the size of any of your databases. You’ll be able to freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia website hosting CP or you may ask our professionals to assist you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you aren't sure what to do.
