Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site stores all its information in a database. Just a couple of examples of such Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site might not perform properly when you reach that limit. The results can range from being unable to include new data to badly performing Internet site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting

If you buy a Linux web hosting package from our company, we will never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven site that you host in the account due to the fact that our packages feature unlimited database space. Despite the fact that enormous databases can have an effect on the functionality of a site whatever the type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases could take and for the overall size of 1 database. You could run a web-based store with as many items as you want or a forum without worrying that you may have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users that you may have. Our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel shall also enable you to import or export databases inside your account regardless of their size. If you experience any issues with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to assist you.

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 emails are managed by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, if you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there is practically no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole machines to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based web site that you host in the semi-dedicated account could develop without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to import or export your databases with several clicks no matter how large they are. If you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for help.
