Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website stores all its info in a database. Just a couple of examples of this type of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user comments and so forth are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the more substantial the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not perform adequately once you hit that limit. The effects can vary from inability to add new info to improperly performing website or even the website showing only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

If you buy a shared hosting plan through us, we shall never restrict the growth of any MySQL-driven site which you host inside the account as our plans feature unlimited database storage space. Even though large databases may affect the functionality of a website regardless of the type of Internet hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases may take and for the overall size of one database. You can run an Internet store with as many products as you'd like or a forum without having to worry you will have to remove old posts or limit the number of registered users which you may have. Our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel shall also permit you to import or export databases within your account whatever their size. If you experience any issues with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to assist you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are managed by their own clusters of servers. Put simply, when you use this type of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's virtually no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disks or whole machines to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based website which you host in the semi-dedicated account may develop without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks no matter how large they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our technical support for assistance.
