If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data inside a database and the larger the Internet site gets, the more data it stores. As an illustration, if you start a web store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses will increase when you add more goods. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they publish, the larger the database. If your sites become more popular or you simply want to add more content, this can develop into a problem if your website hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the exact effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site can perform adequately, but you may not be able to include any new content; the site can be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the entire website may simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Hosting
We use a cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the hosting accounts on it are controlled by a separate cluster of servers, so we have chosen not to limit the total space they could take. Any database inside an account could be of any size, so the development of your websites will not be restricted, given that we are able to keep attaching extra machines to the cluster if required for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In case you run a discussion forum, for instance, you won't have to worry that a great number of users may join or that they could post too many comments. Using our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to export or import a database of any size without difficulty. If you come across any issues with this task, you can check our help articles and video lessons or you may get hold of our technical support crew, that is available 24/7, including weekends and holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because our semi-dedicated server accounts employ an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to offer unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. On the contrary, the overall performance is improved, as a whole cluster of web servers handles solely MySQL queries and nothing else. We can easily keep expanding the cluster storage and the computing power by attaching new web servers and hard drives, so you'll never be confined in regard to the size of any one of your databases. You may freely export or import any MySQL database through the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or you can ask our experts to assist you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you aren't sure how to handle it.
