Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website gathers all of its information in a database. A few examples of this type of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user reviews and so forth are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you include, the bigger the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website may not function correctly when you hit that limit. The consequences can range from not being able to include new information to inadequately functioning site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting

Because of our custom cloud web hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create inside your shared web hosting account. Unlike many Internet hosting providers that run everything on a single machine, we have an entire cluster that handles solely the databases and nothing else. Because of this, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible due to the fact that we can add more web servers at any time if needed. That way your sites could keep expanding with no limitations. You can easily import or export any database no matter what its size using the Hepsia Internet hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to handle your databases. If you want support, you may always check out our video lessons or get hold of our tech support representatives who shall aid you with all database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages which we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of machines. Basically, 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 HDDs or entire machines to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based website which you host in the semi-dedicated account may develop without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks no matter how large they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support for help.
