Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site stores all its data inside a database. Just a few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you add, the larger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website might not work properly when you hit that limit. The effects can vary from inability to add new info to improperly performing website or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
We use a groundbreaking cloud website hosting platform and all databases set up in the cloud hosting accounts on it are controlled by an independent cluster of servers, so we've chosen to not limit the total space they could take. Each database inside an account could be of any size, so the growth of your sites shall not be limited, as we can easily keep attaching more and more machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In case you run a discussion forum, for example, you will not have to worry that too many users may join or that they may post way too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export or import a database of any size easily. If you experience any difficulties with this task, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or you can get hold of our tech support crew, that's available 24/7/365, including holidays & weekends.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll not have any troubles with the size of your MySQL databases in case you have a semi-dedicated server through us because in contrast to many other service providers, we don't run everything on 1 machine. Instead, we employ a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of servers is dedicated to handling the databases of our clients. Anytime more power or space is required, we can simply attach more machines or hard drives to the cluster, so the storage space is literally inexhaustible. With our services, you'll be able to grow your web sites or popularize them as much as you want without having to worry that your MySQL databases will grow too much. Regardless of the size of an individual database, you'll be able to export or import it without difficulty via your web hosting CP.
