Unlike a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website stores its data in a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user reviews and so on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the larger the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site might not perform properly as soon as you reach that limit. The effects can range from not being able to include new content to improperly performing website or even the website displaying only error messages and not being accessible at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting
We use a groundbreaking cloud web hosting platform and all databases created in the website hosting accounts on it are managed by an independent cluster of servers, so we've made the decision to not limit the total space they can take. Every database in an account can be of any size, so the growth of your websites won't be constrained, due to the fact that we could keep connecting additional servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion forum, for example, you won't need to worry that way too many users could join or that they may post too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom-made Hepsia CP, you'll be able to export and import a database of any size easily. If you encounter any problems with this task, you should check our help articles and instructional videos or you can communicate with our tech support crew, that's available round-the-clock, including holidays & weekends.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll not have any difficulties with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server through us because different from many other web hosting service providers, we do not run everything on a single server. Rather, we use a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of machines is dedicated to handling the databases of our customers. When extra power or space is required, we can simply attach more web servers or hard drives to the cluster, so the storage space is basically limitless. With our services, you could expand your sites or popularize them as much as you would like without worrying that your MySQL databases shall grow too much. Regardless of the size of an individual database, you will be able to export or import it easily using your web hosting Control Panel.
