If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data within a database and the bigger the Internet site gets, the more information it stores. For example, if you start a web-based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more goods. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they publish, the bigger the database. If your Internet sites become more popular or you simply want to include more content, this may develop into a problem if your hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the site could work correctly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the site can be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your whole site might go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
Because of our custom cloud website hosting platform, we could offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create inside your shared hosting account. Unlike many website hosting companies that run everything on one web server, we have a whole cluster which controls only the databases and nothing else. For that reason, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible due to the fact that we can add more web servers anytime if required. In this way your websites could keep growing without limitations. You could import or export any database no matter its size via the Hepsia hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to handle your databases. If you want assistance, you may always check our educational videos or communicate with our technical support representatives who will help you with any database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't have any problems with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server through our company since in contrast to many other service providers, we don't run everything on a single server. Rather, we employ a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of servers is dedicated to handling the databases of our clients. When additional power or space is needed, we can just attach more machines or hard drives to the cluster, so the storage space is virtually limitless. With our services, you can grow your Internet sites or popularize them as much as you'd like without having to worry that your MySQL databases will expand too much. Regardless of the size of a particular database, you'll be able to export or import it easily using your web hosting CP.
