If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its info inside a database and the larger the Internet site gets, the more info it gathers. As an illustration, if you start an online store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs shall increase any time you add more goods. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they post, the larger the database. If your Internet sites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this might turn into a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database storage space. What the specific effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the website may function properly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the internet site can be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire website may simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

Because of our custom cloud hosting platform, we can offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create in your cloud hosting account. Unlike many hosting companies which run everything on a single web server, we have an entire cluster which controls only the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the efficiency better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless because we can easily add more web servers at any time if needed. In this way your sites can keep evolving with no limitations. You can easily import or export any database irrespective of its size using the Hepsia Internet hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to handle your databases. If you'd like support, you may always check out our video tutorials or get hold of our support representatives who will aid you with any database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting packages which we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and emails are managed by their own clusters of web 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 due to the fact that there's virtually no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or entire web servers to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based web site which you host in the semi-dedicated account may develop without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with several mouse clicks regardless how large they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for assistance.
