If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its information within a database and the bigger the Internet site gets, the more info it stores. As an illustration, if you launch a web store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase as you add more items. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they publish, the larger the database. If your websites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this can become a problem in the event that your web hosting account has limited database storage area. What the exact effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site can perform adequately, but you may not be able to add any new info; the site can be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the whole site might go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting accounts bought from us are created on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform where each part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and because we can keep adding extra servers to the cluster which handles them, the space which you could use for your databases is practically unlimited. This way, you can easily expand your websites as much as you would like and run any script that requires MySQL without ever having to worry that you'll reach some cap and that your websites will not perform as expected. You will also be able to freely export and import databases of any size through your Hepsia hosting CP. If you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24x7x365 tech support team to assist you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because our semi-dedicated server accounts take advantage of an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Just the opposite, the overall functionality is improved, because an entire cluster of web servers handles just MySQL queries and nothing else. We can easily keep expanding the cluster storage and the processing power by incorporating new web servers and hard disks, so you'll never be restricted when it comes to the size of any of your databases. You could freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia Internet hosting CP or you could ask our professionals to aid you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you aren't sure how to proceed.
