If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its information in a database and the larger the Internet site becomes, the more information it collects. For instance, if you launch an e-store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase as you add more products. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they publish, the more substantial the database. If your sites become popular or you simply want to include more content, this can turn into a problem if your website hosting account has limited database storage area. What the exact effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the site may work adequately, but you may not be able to include any new information; the site could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the entire internet site might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

If you buy a shared website hosting plan through our company, we will never restrict the expansion of any MySQL-driven Internet site which you host inside the account since our plans include unlimited database space for storage. Although large databases can affect the overall performance of a site irrespective of the type of web hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases can take and for the overall size of an individual database. You may run an online store with as many products as you wish or a forum without having to worry you will have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users you could have. Our Hepsia hosting CP will also enable you to import or export databases inside your account no matter their size. If you experience any issues with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to help you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because our semi-dedicated server accounts use an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to offer unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. Quite the opposite, the performance is improved, simply because an entire cluster of servers handles solely MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can easily keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by attaching new web servers and hard drives, so you will never be restricted in regard to the size of any one of your databases. You can freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia hosting CP or you can ask our qualified professionals to assist you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you aren't sure what to do.
