Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website gathers all its information in a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site may not function adequately once you reach that limit. The results can range from inability to include new information to poorly performing website or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Web Hosting

Thanks to our custom cloud hosting platform, we are able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create inside your cloud web hosting account. In contrast to many hosting providers that run everything on a single machine, we have a whole cluster that manages only the databases and nothing else. Because of this, not only is the overall performance better, but the cluster capacity is also immense as we could add more machines at any time if needed. Thus your websites can keep evolving with no limitations. You could import or export any database no matter its size via the Hepsia web hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, you can use to manage your databases. If you want help, you can always take a look at our video lessons or make contact with our tech support representatives who will aid you with any database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, if you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases simply because there is essentially no restriction for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disk drives or entire web servers to the cluster as needed. As a result, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can expand without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks irrespective of how large they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support team for help.
