If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info in a database and the more substantial the website becomes, the more data it gathers. As an illustration, if you launch an Internet store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs shall increase as you add more products. The same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they post, the bigger the database. If your sites become more popular or you would like to include more content, this could be a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database space. What the particular effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the site may function adequately, but you may not be able to add any new content; the website can be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your whole internet site might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

We use a state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases created in the shared website hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of servers, so we have made a decision to not limit the total space they may take. Each database inside an account may be of any size, so the expansion of your Internet sites will not be constrained, due to the fact that we are able to keep connecting more and more machines to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In case you run a community forum, for example, you'll not have to worry that a great number of users could join or that they may post far too many comments. When you use our custom-made Hepsia CP, you will be able to export or import a database of any size easily.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

As our semi-dedicated server accounts take advantage of an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to offer limitless storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account without compromising the quality of the service. On the contrary, the performance is improved, due to the fact that an entire cluster of web servers handles just MySQL queries and nothing else. We could keep expanding the cluster storage and the computing power by incorporating new web servers and hard drives, so you will never be restricted when it comes to the size of any one of your databases. You are able to freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia Internet hosting CP or you could ask our professionals to assist you with this task if you have no previous experience and you aren't sure what to do.
