In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website collects its info in a database. Just a couple of examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user responses and so on are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the bigger the database becomes and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your Internet site might not function correctly as soon as you reach that limit. The effects can range from inability to add new information to badly performing Internet site or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting through us, we shall never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven site that you host in the account since our plans come with unlimited database space. Though huge databases could influence the overall performance of a site regardless of the type of Internet hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases may take and for the overall size of 1 database. You could run a web-based store with as many items as you'd like or a forum without worrying that you will have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users that you can have. Our Hepsia web hosting CP will also allow you to import or export databases inside your account whatever their size. If you experience any issues with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to help you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll not have any difficulties with the size of your MySQL databases in case you have a semi-dedicated server through our company because unlike many other providers, we do not run everything on 1 machine. Rather, we use a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of web servers is dedicated to managing the databases of our customers. When more power or space is required, we can easily attach more machines or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the storage space is literally inexhaustible. With our services, you'll be able to grow your 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 an individual database, you'll be able to export or import it with ease via your hosting Control Panel.
