If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data in a database and the bigger the Internet site becomes, the more data it stores. For example, if you launch an electronic store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase whenever you add more goods. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they submit, the larger the database. If your sites become more popular or you would like to include more content, this may be a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the specific effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the website could work properly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the website could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole site might go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Website Hosting
We use an innovative cloud website hosting platform and all databases created in the cloud website hosting accounts on it are handled by a different cluster of web servers, so we've decided to not limit the total space they could take. Every database inside an account may be of any size, so the expansion of your Internet sites will not be constrained, given that we could keep connecting extra web servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In case you run a community forum, for example, you won't have to worry that way too many users may join or that they could post way too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size with ease. If you face any difficulties with this task, you can check our help articles and video lessons or you can communicate with our support team, which is available 24-7-365, including weekends & holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because our semi-dedicated server accounts take advantage of an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide you with unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Quite the opposite, the overall efficiency is improved, because an entire cluster of web servers handles just MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by attaching new servers and hard disk drives, so you will never be limited in regard to the size of any one of your databases. You are able to freely export or import any MySQL database through the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia web hosting CP or you can ask our qualified professionals to assist you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you are not sure what to do.
