In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website stores its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user reviews and so forth are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you include, the bigger the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not perform correctly after you reach that limit. The effects can vary from not being able to include new information to poorly working Internet site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

We use a state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform and all databases created in the shared website hosting accounts on it are managed by an independent cluster of servers, so we have made the decision not to limit the total space they may take. Every database inside an account can be of any size, so the expansion of your sites will not be constrained, as we could keep connecting additional web servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In case you run a discussion board, for example, you won't have to worry that way too many users may join or that they may post way too many comments. Using our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export or import a database of any size easily. If you experience any issues with this task, you should check our help articles and video tutorials or you could get in touch with our technical support crew, which is available 24-7-365, including holidays & weekends.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will not have any problems with the size of your MySQL databases in case you have a semi-dedicated server through us as unlike many other providers, we don't run everything on 1 web server. Rather, we employ a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of web servers is dedicated to handling the databases of our customers. Every time extra power or space is required, we can easily attach more servers or hard disks to the cluster, so the storage space is basically limitless. With our services, you'll be able to expand your sites or popularize them as much as you'd like without worrying that your MySQL databases shall expand too much. Irrespective of the size of a specific database, you'll be able to export or import it without difficulty via your web hosting CP.
