Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site collects all its information in a database. A few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user comments etc are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the larger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website may not perform adequately as soon as you hit that limit. The results can vary from not being able to include new data to badly functioning website or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
We use a cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and all databases created in the cloud hosting accounts on it are controlled by a separate cluster of web servers, so we've decided not to limit the total space they could take. Each database inside an account could be of any size, so the growth of your Internet sites will not be restricted, due to the fact that we are able to keep attaching more and more machines to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and better load balancing. If you run a discussion board, for example, you'll not have to worry that too many users may join or that they may post way too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom-made Hepsia CP, you'll be able to export and import a database of any size easily. If you experience any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and video lessons or you can communicate with our tech support crew, that is available 24-7, including holidays & weekends.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages which we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of machines. In other words, when you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases as there's essentially no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disks or entire web servers to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based web site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can evolve without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia Internet 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 do not have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support for help.
