Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site collects its information inside a database. Just a few examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user responses etc are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you add, the larger the database gets and if your website hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website might not function correctly when you hit that limit. The end results can range from being unable to add new content to improperly functioning website or even the website showing only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are controlled by an independent cluster of web servers, so we have made a decision not to limit the total space they could take. Every database in an account can be of any size, so the development of your sites will not be constrained, given that we could keep attaching extra servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a community forum, for instance, you'll not need to worry that way too many users may join or that they may post way too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom-made Hepsia CP, you shall be able to export or import a database of any size easily. If you encounter any problems with this task, you can check our help articles and video lessons or you can get in touch with our technical support team, that is available 24x7, including holidays & weekends.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

You won't have any issues with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from us because in contrast to many other companies, we don't run everything on a single machine. Instead, we use a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of machines is dedicated to controlling the databases of our customers. Whenever extra power or space is required, we can easily attach more servers or hard drives to the cluster, so the disk space is basically inexhaustible. With our services, you may develop your sites or popularize them as much as you'd like without worrying that your MySQL databases shall grow too much. Whatever the size of a particular database, you'll be able to export or import it easily using your hosting CP.
