Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all its info in a database. Just a couple of examples of this type of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you include, the more substantial the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site may not perform properly after you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to add new content to badly performing Internet site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting

If you get a web hosting from our company, we will never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven website that you host in the account due to the fact that our plans feature unlimited database storage space. Though large databases could affect the functionality of an Internet site irrespective of the type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases can take and for the overall size of 1 database. You can run an online store with as many products and services as you wish or a forum without worrying you will have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users which you can have. Our Hepsia hosting CP shall also enable you to import or export databases in your account irrespective of their size. If you encounter any problems with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to assist you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. To put it differently, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there is practically no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disks or whole web servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily develop without any limits. With the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks no matter how large they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our technical support for help.
