If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its information inside a database and the larger the site gets, the more data it collects. As an illustration, if you launch an e-store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs shall increase any time you add more products. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they submit, the more substantial the database. If your websites become more popular or you simply want to add more content, this may be a problem in the event that your web hosting account has limited database space. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the site could function correctly, but you may not be able to include any new info; the website may be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the whole site might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Hosting

Due to our custom cloud web hosting platform, we can offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create inside your hosting account. Different from many Internet hosting providers that run everything on a single server, we have an entire cluster which controls solely the databases and nothing else. For that reason, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless because we can add more servers anytime if required. That way your websites can keep developing without restrictions. You can easily import or export any database irrespective of its size through the Hepsia hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to control your databases. If you'd like assistance, you could always check out our video lessons or get hold of our support representatives who will help you with all database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You won't have any troubles with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from our company due to the fact that unlike many other providers, we do not run everything on one machine. Rather, we use a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of web servers is dedicated to handling the databases of our customers. When extra power or space is required, we can quickly attach more servers or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the storage space is literally infinite. With our services, you can develop your sites or popularize them as much as you would like without having to worry that your MySQL databases will expand too much. Irrespective of the size of a particular database, you'll be able to export or import it without difficulty via your hosting CP.
