Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site stores all of its data in a database. Just a few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website may not function properly as soon as you hit that limit. The end results can range from not being able to include new data to improperly performing site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting accounts bought from our company are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where each part of the web hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and considering the fact that we're able to keep adding extra servers to the cluster that controls them, the space you could use for your databases is virtually unrestricted. In this way, you could expand your sites as much as you need and run any script which requires MySQL without ever being worried that you'll reach some cap and that your Internet sites won't perform as expected. You'll also be able to freely export and import databases of any size using your Hepsia web hosting CP. In case you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24x7x365 tech support team to assist you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages which we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. Simply put, when you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases simply because there's essentially no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disks or entire machines to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based website which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can develop without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks irrespective of how massive they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support for help.
