In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website stores its information in a database. Just a few examples of this sort of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user comments etc are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you add, the larger the database gets and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site might not work properly after you reach that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to include new content to improperly working site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

If you acquire a Linux shared hosting package through us, we will never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven website that you host inside the account because our packages include unlimited database storage space. Though large databases may affect the overall performance of a website irrespective of the type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases may take and for the overall size of an individual database. You can run a web-based store with as many products and services as you want or a forum without worrying you will have to delete old posts or limit the number of registered users you can have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel shall also permit you to import or export databases within your account irrespective of their size. If you encounter any difficulties with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to aid you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, if you use such a plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases because there's virtually no restriction for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disks or whole servers to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based web site which you host in the semi-dedicated account may expand without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks irrespective of how large they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support team for assistance.
