Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website collects its data inside a database. A few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, prices, 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 more substantial the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not work adequately once you hit that limit. The results can vary from not being able to include new data to badly performing site or even the site showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a revolutionary cloud web hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are controlled by a different cluster of web servers, so we've made the decision to not limit the total space they may take. Any database in an account could be of any size, so the development of your sites won't be limited, given that we can easily keep attaching extra web servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and far better load balancing. If you run a discussion forum, for example, you will not need to worry that too many users may join or that they might post far too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom Hepsia CP, you will be able to export or import a database of any size easily. If you encounter any difficulties with this task, you should check our help articles and instructional videos or you could contact our support crew, that's available 24x7x365, including weekends & holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

You won't have any troubles with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server through us due to the fact that in contrast to many other companies, we do not run everything on a single machine. Rather, we employ a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of servers is dedicated to managing the databases of our clients. Anytime additional power or space is needed, we can easily attach more web servers or hard drives to the cluster, so the disk space is virtually limitless. With our services, you may expand your web sites or popularize them as much as you would like without having to worry that your MySQL databases shall expand too much. No matter the size of a specific database, you shall be able to export or import it easily using your website hosting CP.
