If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info in a database and the bigger the Internet site gets, the more information it stores. For example, if you launch an online store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more goods. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they publish, the bigger the database. If your websites become more popular or you would like to add more content, this can develop into a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the specific effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the site may work correctly, but you may not be able to add any new information; the site could be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the entire website may simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a revolutionary cloud hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are managed by a different cluster of web servers, so we've made the decision not to limit the total space they could take. Each database inside an account could be of any size, so the development of your sites won't be constrained, due to the fact that we are able to keep connecting more and more web servers to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In case you run a discussion board, for instance, you'll not need to worry that too many users could join or that they might post way too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom-made Hepsia CP, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size easily.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our semi-dedicated server accounts use an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to offer unrestricted storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. Quite the opposite, the overall functionality is improved, simply because a whole cluster of servers handles just MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can easily keep expanding the cluster storage and the computing power by incorporating new web servers and hard drives, so you will never be confined in terms of the size of any of your databases. You could freely export or import any MySQL database through the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia web hosting CP or you can ask our professionals to assist you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to proceed.
