In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site stores all of its data in a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user feedback etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site may not work adequately when you hit that limit. The effects can range from inability to add new data to improperly functioning website or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

Due to our custom cloud hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create in your cloud hosting account. Different from many Internet hosting providers which run everything on one server, we have a whole cluster which controls only the databases and nothing else. Consequently, not only is the overall performance better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite because we can easily add more web servers anytime if needed. This way your sites can keep evolving with no restrictions. You can easily 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 need assistance, you could always take a look at our instructional videos or communicate with our tech support representatives who will aid you with all database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated service we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of machines. In other words, when you use such a plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there's practically no limitation for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard drives or entire web servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily expand without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks no matter how large they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for help.
