Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site gathers its info inside a database. Just a few examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user reviews etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the larger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site may not function properly as soon as you reach that limit. The end results can vary from not being able to add new information to inadequately performing website or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

Thanks to our custom cloud web hosting platform, we could offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create in your shared website hosting account. Different from many web hosting companies which run everything on just a single web server, we have a whole cluster which manages only the databases and nothing else. Consequently, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless due to the fact that we can add more web servers anytime if required. Thus your sites can keep expanding without any restrictions. You can import or export any database irrespective of its size via the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to manage your databases. If you want assistance, you may always check our video tutorials or make contact with our support representatives who shall aid you with any database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting packages we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of machines. In other words, if you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there is practically no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard drives or entire servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily expand without any restrictions. With the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks regardless of how large they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support team for help.
