Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site collects all its data in a database. A few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user comments and so forth are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not function adequately as soon as you reach that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to add new information to badly functioning Internet site or even the website showing only error messages and not being accessible at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
If you acquire a Linux cloud hosting through us, we shall never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven site that you host inside the account since our plans come with unlimited database space for storage. Though enormous databases can influence the performance of a website irrespective of the type of web hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases can take and for the total size of one database. You can run an Internet based store with as many products as you wish or a forum without worrying that you will have to remove old posts or limit the number of registered users which you can have. Our Hepsia web hosting CP will also enable you to import or export databases inside your account whatever their size. If you face any issues with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to aid you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of machines. In other words, when you use such a plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there's essentially no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or whole machines to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account could evolve without any restrictions. With the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks regardless of how massive they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for assistance.
