Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website gathers all of its information in a database. Just a few examples of this type of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user feedback and so on are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not work properly once you reach that limit. The effects can range from being unable to include new content to inadequately performing website or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
We use a revolutionary cloud hosting platform and all databases created in the shared web hosting accounts on it are controlled by an independent cluster of web servers, so we have made the decision to not limit the total space they may take. Every database in an account can be of any size, so the development of your websites shall not be constrained, due to the fact that we are able to keep connecting additional web servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a discussion board, for example, you shall not need to worry that too many users may join or that they could post far too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom-made Hepsia CP, you will be able to export or import a database of any size with ease. If you come across any issues with this task, you can look at our help articles and video tutorials or you can communicate with our support team, which is available 24/7, including weekends and holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll not have any problems with the size of your MySQL databases in case you have a semi-dedicated server from us due to the fact that different from many other web hosting service providers, we don't run everything on 1 web server. Instead, we work with a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of machines is dedicated to handling the databases of our customers. Every time extra power or space is required, we can just attach more web servers or hard drives to the cluster, so the disk space is virtually inexhaustible. With our services, you'll be able to grow your Internet sites or popularize them as much as you would like without worrying that your MySQL databases shall grow too much. No matter the size of a particular database, you will be able to export or import it easily through your hosting Control Panel.
