Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site stores all of its data in a database. Just a few examples of this sort of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user comments and so forth are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site might not perform correctly when you reach that limit. The end results can range from not being able to include new info to improperly performing Internet site or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
If you obtain a cloud plan from us, we shall never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven Internet site which you host in the account since our plans come with unlimited database space for storage. Even though large databases can affect the overall performance of a site no matter what type of Internet hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases can take and for the total size of one database. You can easily run a web-based store with as many items as you would like or a forum without having to worry that you may have to remove old posts or limit the amount of registered users that you could have. Our Hepsia Internet hosting CP shall also permit you to import or export databases within your account irrespective of their size. If you experience any problems with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to assist you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated plans which we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, when you use such a plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there is virtually no limitation for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disk drives or entire servers to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based site that you host in the semi-dedicated account could expand without any restrictions. With the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks irrespective of how large they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support team for help.
