If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info within a database and the more substantial the Internet site gets, the more info it gathers. As an example, if you start an Internet based store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses shall increase as you add more products. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they publish, the more substantial the database. If your websites become popular or you just want to include more content, this could be a problem in the event that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage space. What the specific effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the website can work correctly, but you may not be able to add any new information; the website may be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your whole website may simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use an innovative cloud hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are handled by a different cluster of servers, so we have decided to not limit the total space they can take. Each database in an account may be of any size, so the growth of your Internet sites will not be limited, given that we could keep attaching extra web servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and better load balancing. If you run a community forum, for instance, you will not have to worry that a great number of users may join or that they may post far too many comments. When you use our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size easily. If you face any problems with this task, you can check our help articles and video lessons or you can get hold of our technical support crew, that's available round-the-clock, including weekends & holidays.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

You won't have any issues with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server through our company due to the fact that different from many other service providers, we don't run everything on one machine. Rather, we employ a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of machines is dedicated to controlling the databases of our customers. Every time more power or space is required, we can easily attach more web servers or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the storage space is literally infinite. With our services, you could develop your sites or popularize them as much as you'd like without worrying that your MySQL databases will expand too much. Irrespective of the size of a particular database, you shall be able to export or import it without difficulty using your web hosting Control Panel.
