In contrast to a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website stores its data inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user comments etc are gathered in the database and not in 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 Internet site may not perform adequately once you reach that limit. The end results can vary from not being able to add new data to badly functioning site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting

Due to our custom cloud web hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create in your shared web hosting account. In contrast to many Internet hosting providers that run everything on a single machine, we have an entire cluster that manages just the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless because we can easily add more web servers anytime if required. That way your sites can keep developing without limits. You could import or export any database no matter what its size using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to handle your databases. If you'd like support, you could always take a look at our video tutorials or get in touch with our tech support representatives who shall assist you with all database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans which we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of machines. Put simply, if you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there's virtually no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard drives or whole web servers to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account may develop without any limitations. Via the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia Internet hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with several clicks no matter how big they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support for help.
