In contrast to a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site gathers its data in a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user reviews and so on are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website might not work properly once you hit that limit. The consequences can range from not being able to add new information to inadequately functioning site or even the site showing only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

Thanks to our custom cloud website hosting platform, we could offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create in your cloud hosting account. In contrast to many Internet hosting companies which run everything on just a single machine, we have an entire cluster which handles only the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless as we can easily add more machines at any time if needed. That way your Internet sites can keep evolving without restrictions. You could import or export any database no matter its size through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to manage your databases. If you want help, you can always check our video lessons or get hold of our tech support representatives who will help you with all database-related questions within the hour.

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 from our company because in contrast to many other website hosting service providers, we do not run everything on 1 machine. Rather, we employ a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of machines is dedicated to controlling the databases of our customers. Anytime additional power or space is needed, we can just attach more machines or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the disk space is literally infinite. With our services, you'll be able to grow your Internet sites or popularize them as much as you would like without worrying that your MySQL databases shall expand too much. Regardless of the size of a specific database, you'll be able to export or import it without difficulty via your hosting CP.
