Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site stores its data in a database. Just a few examples of this sort of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user responses and so on are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you add, the bigger the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site may not function adequately after you reach that limit. The end results can vary from not being able to include new info to improperly working site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Website Hosting

Because of our custom cloud hosting platform, we can offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create inside your cloud website hosting account. Different from many hosting providers that run everything on just a single web server, we have a whole cluster that controls solely the databases and nothing else. For that reason, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also immense as we can easily add more machines anytime if required. Thus your Internet sites can keep growing without limits. You could import or export any database no matter its size through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to handle your databases. If you would like help, you could always check our instructional videos or make contact with our tech support representatives who shall aid you with all database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, if you use such a plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there is essentially no restriction for the database space - we can keep adding as many HDDs or entire servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based web site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily evolve without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks regardless of how large they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support team for help.
