If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information inside a database and the more substantial the Internet site becomes, the more info it collects. For example, if you start an e-store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase as you add more items. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they publish, the bigger the database. If your websites become more popular or you would like to add more content, this may develop into a problem in the event that your website hosting account has limited database storage area. What the specific effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site can work correctly, but you may not be able to include any new info; the website may be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your whole internet site might go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
We use a revolutionary cloud website hosting platform and all databases created in the cloud hosting accounts on it are managed by a different cluster of servers, so we've decided not to limit the total space they can take. Each database in an account may be of any size, so the growth of your sites won't be limited, since we can easily keep connecting more and more servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion forum, for instance, you won't need to worry that way too many users could join or that they might post too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom-made Hepsia CP, you shall be able to export and import a database of any size with no trouble. If you come across any issues with this task, you can look at our help articles and video tutorials or you could get in touch with our tech support team, that's available 24-7, including holidays & weekends.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our semi-dedicated server accounts work with an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide you with unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. Quite the contrary, the overall efficiency is improved, simply because an entire cluster of servers handles only MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We could keep expanding the cluster storage and the computing power by adding new web servers and hard disk drives, so you'll never be confined in terms of the size of any of your databases. You could freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel or you can ask our professionals to assist you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to proceed.
