If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its info within a database and the larger the site becomes, the more information it stores. For example, if you launch an electronic store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more goods. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they submit, the bigger the database. If your sites become more popular or you simply want to include more content, this might turn into a problem in the event that your web hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the website can function correctly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the internet site can be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole website might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

If you acquire a shared website hosting plan through us, we will never limit the development of any MySQL-driven website that you host inside the account since our plans come with unlimited database storage space. Even though massive databases may have an effect on the performance of a site whatever the type of Internet hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases may take and for the overall size of an individual database. You may run an Internet store with as many products and services as you wish or a forum without worrying that you will have to delete old posts or limit the number of registered users that you could have. Our Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel will also permit you to import or export databases inside your account regardless of their size. If you experience any difficulties with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to aid you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of servers. Basically, if you use this kind of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there's essentially no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole servers to the cluster as needed. Consequently, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account may develop without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks irrespective of how large they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for assistance.
