If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information inside a database and the larger the Internet site becomes, the more information it collects. For example, if you launch an e-store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs shall increase when you add more products. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they post, the bigger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this may turn into a problem if your hosting account has limited database storage space. What the particular effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the site can perform adequately, but you may not be able to add any new info; the site may be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole site could simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

We use a groundbreaking cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the cloud hosting accounts on it are handled by a different cluster of web servers, so we've decided not to limit the total space they could take. Each database inside an account can be of any size, so the growth of your websites won't be limited, since we are able to keep connecting extra machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In case you run a discussion board, for instance, you shall not have to worry that way too many users could join or that they could post way too many comments. When you use our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export and import a database of any size with ease. If you encounter any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and video tutorials or you can contact our tech support crew, that is available 24/7/365, including weekends and holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated plans which we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, when you use such a plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases because there's virtually no limitation for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard drives or entire web servers to the cluster as needed. Consequently, any MySQL-based site which you host in the semi-dedicated account may expand without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to import or export your databases with several clicks no matter how large they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for assistance.
