In comparison with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all its data in a database. A few examples of this type of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the bigger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not function correctly as soon as you reach that limit. The effects can vary from being unable to add new content to poorly performing site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting accounts purchased from us are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where each and every part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and considering the fact that we can easily keep adding extra machines to the cluster which handles them, the space you may use for your databases is practically unlimited. This way, you can easily grow your sites as much as you would like and run any script which requires MySQL without ever being worried that you'll reach some cap and that your sites won't work correctly. In addition, you’ll be able to freely export and import databases of various size via your Hepsia website hosting CP. If you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24x7 tech support team to assist you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

You won't have any difficulties with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from our company since unlike many other web hosting service providers, we don't run everything on one machine. Instead, we employ a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of servers is dedicated to controlling the databases of our clients. Every time additional power or space is required, we can easily attach more servers or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the storage space is basically infinite. With our services, you can grow your Internet sites or popularize them as much as you'd like without having to worry that your MySQL databases will expand too much. No matter the size of a particular database, you'll be able to export or import it without difficulty through your website hosting Control Panel.
