In contrast to a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website stores all of its information in a database. Just a few examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the larger the database gets and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your Internet site might not perform properly once you reach that limit. The effects can range from inability to add new content to improperly functioning Internet site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
We use a state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform and all databases created in the shared web hosting accounts on it are handled by an independent cluster of web servers, so we have decided not to limit the total space they can take. Any database in an account can be of any size, so the development of your websites shall not be restricted, due to the fact that we could keep attaching additional servers to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and far better load balancing. If you run a community forum, for instance, you won't have to worry that way too many users could join or that they could post way too many comments. Using our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size with ease. If you come across any issues with this task, you should check our help articles and video tutorials or you may get in touch with our tech support crew, which is available round-the-clock, including weekends & holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will not have any issues with the size of your MySQL databases in case you have a semi-dedicated server from our company as unlike many other service providers, we do not run everything on one web server. Instead, we use a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of servers is dedicated to handling the databases of our customers. Every time more power or space is needed, we can quickly attach more machines or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the disk space is virtually infinite. With our services, you could expand your websites or popularize them as much as you want without having to worry that your MySQL databases shall grow too much. Regardless of the size of a specific database, you'll be able to export or import it effortlessly using your web hosting Control Panel.
