If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its data inside a database and the larger the site becomes, the more data it gathers. As an example, if you start an e-store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs shall increase whenever you add more products. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they publish, the more substantial the database. If your websites become more popular or you simply want to add more content, this can become a problem if your web hosting account has limited database space. What the exact effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website could perform properly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the internet site can be displayed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your whole website could simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Hosting
We use a groundbreaking cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases created in the hosting accounts on it are managed by a different cluster of web servers, so we have chosen to not limit the total space they can take. Any database inside an account can be of any size, so the development of your Internet sites will not be constrained, due to the fact that we could keep attaching additional web servers to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and better load balancing. In the event you run a community forum, for instance, you shall not have to worry that way too many users could join or that they could post too many comments. Using our custom-made Hepsia CP, you will be able to export and import a database of any size with ease. If you come across any issues with this task, you can look at our help articles and video tutorials or you can get in touch with our support crew, which is available round-the-clock, including weekends & holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated plans we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of servers. In other words, when you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases as there is virtually no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard drives or whole servers to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can grow without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed from the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks irrespective of how massive they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for assistance.
