Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site collects all its information inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user responses etc are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site may not function adequately as soon as you reach that limit. The end results can range from inability to add new info to badly functioning website or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting

We use an innovative cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases created in the shared web hosting accounts on it are controlled by a separate cluster of web servers, so we have chosen not to limit the total space they could take. Every database inside an account could be of any size, so the growth of your websites won't be restricted, since we are able to keep connecting extra web servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a community forum, for example, you shall not need to worry that way too many users could join or that they may post way too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size with no trouble. If you face any difficulties with this task, you can look at our help articles and video lessons or you can communicate with our support crew, which is available 24-7, including weekends and holidays.

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 as different from many other web hosting service providers, we do not run everything on one server. Instead, we employ a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of machines is dedicated to managing the databases of our clients. Whenever extra power or space is required, we can easily attach more servers or hard disks to the cluster, so the storage space is basically limitless. With our services, you could develop your web sites or popularize them as much as you would like without worrying that your MySQL databases will expand too much. Irrespective of the size of a specific database, you will be able to export or import it easily via your web hosting CP.
