Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site gathers its information inside a database. Just a few examples of this kind of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user reviews and so forth are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website might not perform properly when you reach that limit. The results can vary from not being able to include new data to badly performing site or even the website showing only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

If you acquire a shared hosting from us, we will never limit the growth of any MySQL-driven site which you host inside the account because our packages come with unlimited database space for storage. Though enormous databases may affect the overall performance of a website regardless of the type of web hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases could take and for the overall size of one database. You may run a web-based store with as many products and services as you would like or a forum without having to worry that you may have to remove old posts or limit the amount of registered users that you can have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel shall also allow you to import or export databases inside your account no matter their size. If you encounter any problems with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to assist you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages which we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and emails are handled by their own clusters of servers. Simply put, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there is practically no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or whole servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can grow without any restrictions. With the phpMyAdmin instrument, which can be accessed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks irrespective of how large they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our technical support for assistance.
