Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site stores all its data inside a database. A few examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user comments etc are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the larger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your Internet site may not function properly once you hit that limit. The end results can vary from not being able to include new data to poorly performing Internet site or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting accounts purchased from us are created on our custom cloud hosting platform where each part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and given that we can easily keep adding extra web servers to the cluster which controls them, the space that you may use for your databases is basically unrestricted. This way, you can easily expand your Internet sites as much as you would like and run any script that requires MySQL without ever being concerned that you'll reach some cap and that your sites won't function properly. You'll be able to freely export and import databases of any size via your Hepsia web hosting CP. In case you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24x7 tech support to assist you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You won't have any issues with the size of your MySQL databases in case you have a semi-dedicated server from our company due to the fact that in contrast to many other web hosting service providers, we do not run everything on one web server. Instead, we use a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of servers is dedicated to handling the databases of our customers. Whenever more power or space is required, we can simply attach more web servers or hard disks to the cluster, so the storage space is practically inexhaustible. With our services, you'll be able to expand your web sites or popularize them as much as you want without worrying that your MySQL databases shall expand too much. Irrespective of the size of a specific database, you will be able to export or import it easily via your website hosting CP.
