If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info inside a database and the larger the Internet site gets, the more information it collects. For example, if you start an Internet store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs will increase when you add more items. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they post, the bigger the database. If your sites become more popular or you just want to add more content, this may turn into a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database storage space. What the specific effect of geting to the limit will be depends on the script - the website can work correctly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the website may be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the entire website could simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting accounts bought from our company are created on our custom cloud website hosting platform where every single part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and given that we can keep adding more machines to the cluster that manages them, the space which you may use for your databases is basically unrestricted. In this way, you can easily expand your Internet sites as much as you want and run any script which requires MySQL without ever being concerned that you'll reach some cap and that your websites won't perform adequately. Additionally, you'll be able to freely export and import databases of any size via your Hepsia hosting CP. In case you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24/7/365 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our semi-dedicated server accounts employ an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. Just the opposite, the overall efficiency is improved, due to the fact that an entire cluster of servers handles solely MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can easily keep growing the cluster storage and the computing power by attaching new servers and hard disks, so you will never be restricted when it comes to the size of any one of your databases. You are able to freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia web hosting CP or you can ask our qualified professionals to help you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to proceed.
