In comparison with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site gathers all of its information in a database. Just a few examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site may not perform properly as soon as you hit that limit. The effects can vary from not being able to include new content to improperly performing Internet site or even the website displaying only error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Web Hosting
Because of our custom cloud web hosting platform, we could offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create in your cloud web hosting account. Unlike many web hosting providers that run everything on one machine, we have an entire cluster that controls just the databases and nothing else. For that reason, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite due to the fact that we can easily add more web servers anytime if required. Thus your websites can keep expanding without any restrictions. You could import or export any database irrespective of its size through the Hepsia Internet hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, you can use to control your databases. If you would like support, you could always check our instructional videos or get hold of our tech support representatives who will help you with all database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated servers we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of web servers. Simply put, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there's essentially no limitation for the database space - we could keep adding as many HDDs or entire machines to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based site which you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily evolve without any restrictions. With the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks regardless how massive they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for assistance.
