Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site collects its info in a database. Just a few examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so forth are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you include, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not perform adequately after you reach that limit. The results can vary from being unable to include new info to poorly working website or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting
If you buy a Linux website hosting
from our company, we will never limit the development of any MySQL-driven website which you host inside the account due to the fact that our packages include unlimited database storage space. Though enormous databases might have an effect on the overall performance of a site no matter what type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases might take and for the total size of 1 database. You could run an online store with as many products as you want or a forum without worrying that you may have to delete old posts or limit the number of registered users which you could have. Our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will also enable you to import or export databases in your account regardless of their size. If you face any issues with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to assist you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated hosting service
we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of machines. Simply put, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there is practically no limitation for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole servers to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based website which you host in the semi-dedicated account could develop without any limits. With the phpMyAdmin tool, which could be accessed through the Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks no matter how massive they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support team for help.
