Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all of its information inside a database. Just a few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your Internet site may not perform adequately after you hit that limit. The end results can vary from inability to add new information to poorly working Internet site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting

If you buy a Linux shared web hosting package through us, we will never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven site that you host in the account due to the fact that our packages include unlimited database storage space. Though massive databases might influence the overall performance of a site whatever the type of web hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all databases might take and for the total size of one database. You may run an online store with as many items as you'd like or a forum without having to worry that you may have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users that you can have. Our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will also enable you to import or export databases within your account whatever their size. If you encounter any difficulties with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to help you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages which we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of machines. In other words, if you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there's practically no restriction for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard drives or entire web servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based web site which you host in the semi-dedicated account can expand without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting CP, you shall be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks regardless how big they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you can ask our technical support for assistance.
