If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its data within a database and the more substantial the site gets, the more data it stores. For example, if you start a web-based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase when you add more goods. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they submit, the more substantial the database. If your sites become more popular or you simply want to include more content, this could become a problem in case that your website hosting account has limited database storage area. What the specific effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the site may work adequately, but you may not be able to add any new info; the website may be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your entire site might go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting
accounts bought through our company are created on our custom cloud hosting platform where every part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and because we're able to keep adding more servers to the cluster which handles them, the space which you may use for your databases is basically unrestricted. This way, you could expand your websites as much as you want and run any script that requires MySQL without ever worrying that you'll reach some cap and that your sites won't function properly. You'll also be able to freely export and import databases of any size using your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. If you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24/7 tech support team to help you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated servers
we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, when you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there is practically no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many HDDs or whole machines to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based web site which you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily develop without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks regardless of how massive they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our technical support for assistance.
