Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site collects all its info inside a database. A few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user responses and so on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site might not function properly when you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from not being able to include new data to badly functioning website or even the website showing only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting
We use a state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared website hosting accounts on it are handled by a different cluster of web servers, so we have made a decision to not limit the total space they can take. Any database inside an account could be of any size, so the growth of your websites will not be restricted, since we are able to keep attaching extra servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In case you run a community forum, for instance, you'll not need to worry that a great number of users could join or that they might post too many comments. Using our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size with ease. If you face any issues with this task, you can look at our help articles and instructional videos or you could contact our tech support team, that is available 24-7, including weekends and holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll not have any difficulties with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from us because different from many other website hosting service providers, we don't run everything on a single server. Instead, we work with a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of web servers is dedicated to controlling the databases of our customers. Every time additional power or space is required, we can easily attach more web servers or hard disks to the cluster, so the storage space is literally infinite. With our services, you'll be able to grow your sites or popularize them as much as you want without having to worry that your MySQL databases will grow too much. No matter the size of a particular database, you will be able to export or import it easily via your hosting CP.
