In comparison with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website collects all its info in a database. A few examples of this type of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website might not perform properly as soon as you reach that limit. The consequences can range from inability to include new info to poorly functioning website or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
Because of our custom cloud website hosting platform, we are able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create in your shared web hosting account. In contrast to many website hosting companies that run everything on one server, we have an entire cluster that manages solely the databases and nothing else. Because of this, not only is the efficiency better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible as we can add more machines at any time if required. In this way your Internet sites can keep growing without restrictions. You can import or export any database no matter its size through the Hepsia website hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to handle your databases. If you need assistance, you may always check our educational videos or get hold of our tech support representatives who will assist you with all database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our semi-dedicated server accounts take advantage of an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide limitless storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account without compromising the quality of the service. On the contrary, the performance is improved, simply because a whole cluster of servers handles solely MySQL queries and nothing else. We can easily keep expanding the cluster storage and the processing power by attaching new web servers and hard drives, so you will never be confined in terms of the size of any one of your databases. You can freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia Internet hosting CP or you may ask our technicians to assist you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you are not sure what to do.
