Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site collects all of its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this type of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback and so on are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the larger the database becomes and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website might not perform properly once you reach that limit. The consequences can range from being unable to add new info to poorly functioning website or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Website Hosting
All cloud website hosting accounts acquired from us are created on our custom cloud website hosting platform where each and every part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and because we're able to keep adding more servers to the cluster which manages them, the space you can use for your databases is basically unlimited. Thus, you could grow your websites as much as you would like and run any script which requires MySQL without ever worrying you'll reach some cap and that your Internet sites won't perform adequately. You will also be able to freely export and import databases of various size through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Provided you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24/7 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because our semi-dedicated server accounts employ an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide you with unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Quite the contrary, the overall performance is improved, as an entire cluster of web servers handles solely MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can keep expanding the cluster storage and the computing power by adding new servers and hard drives, so you'll never be restricted in regard to the size of any of your databases. You can freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia hosting CP or you can ask our professionals to help you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you aren't sure what you should do.
