If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information within a database and the more substantial the website becomes, the more info it collects. As an example, if you launch an online store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase as you add more items. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they submit, the larger the database. If your Internet sites gain popularity or you just want to include more content, this could develop into a problem in case that your web hosting account has limited database storage area. What the exact effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site could work correctly, but you may not be able to include any new info; the internet site can be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your entire site might go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
Due to our custom cloud hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create in your cloud hosting account. Different from many hosting companies which run everything on one machine, we have an entire cluster that controls just the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite because we can add more servers at any time if needed. In this way your sites can keep developing with no restrictions. You can import or export any database regardless of its size through the Hepsia website hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to control your databases. If you'd like support, you can always take a look at our video lessons or communicate with our tech support representatives who shall aid you with all database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our semi-dedicated server accounts work with an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide unrestricted storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. On the contrary, the functionality is improved, simply because a whole cluster of web servers handles only MySQL queries and nothing else. We could keep expanding the cluster storage and the computing power by incorporating new machines and hard disk drives, so you'll never be limited in regard to the size of any of your databases. You could freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel or you can ask our experts to assist you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to handle it.
