In contrast to 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 kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, prices, blog posts, user comments and so forth are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you add, the bigger the database gets and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site might not work properly once you hit that limit. The results can vary from being unable to add new data to poorly performing Internet site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts purchased from our company are created on our custom cloud hosting platform where every single part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers.

Provided you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24/7/365 technical support to aid you with either one of these tasks.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of servers. To put it differently, when you use this type of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases simply because there's virtually no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many HDDs or entire machines to the cluster as needed. Consequently, any MySQL-based web site which you host in the semi-dedicated account can develop without any limitations. With the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks no matter how large they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support for help.
