Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site gathers its info in a database. Just a few examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user comments etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the larger the database gets and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not work properly once you hit that limit. The results can range from being unable to include new content to inadequately working Internet site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

If you buy a Linux shared package through our company, we will never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven site that you host inside the account as our plans include unlimited database storage space. Although enormous databases could influence the functionality of an Internet site whatever the type of hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases may take and for the overall size of an individual database. You may run a web-based store with as many products as you would like or a forum without worrying that you will have to remove old posts or limit the amount of registered users you can have. Our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will also enable you to import or export databases within your account whatever their size. If you experience any difficulties with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to help you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, when you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases because there's virtually no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disk drives or entire web servers to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily expand without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless of how large they are. If you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support for help.
