In comparison with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website gathers its info in a database. Just a few examples of this type of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses etc are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site may not work correctly once you hit that limit. The consequences can range from not being able to add new content to improperly working site or even the website showing only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting

Because of our custom cloud website hosting platform, we can offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create in your web hosting account. Different from many hosting companies that run everything on a single machine, we have an entire cluster that manages solely the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible as we can add more servers anytime if needed. That way your websites could keep growing with no restrictions. You can import or export any database irrespective of its size via the Hepsia Internet hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to control your databases. If you want support, you can always check out our video lessons or make contact with our technical support representatives who shall assist you with all database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

You won't have any problems with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from us since in contrast to many other website hosting service providers, we don't run everything on one machine. Instead, we use a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of machines is dedicated to handling the databases of our customers. When more power or space is needed, we can just attach more machines or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the disk space is literally inexhaustible. With our services, you can grow your web sites or popularize them as much as you'd like without having to worry that your MySQL databases will grow too much. Whatever the size of an individual database, you shall be able to export or import it easily via your web hosting Control Panel.
