Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site collects its info in a database. Just a few examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the more substantial the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site may not work correctly as soon as you reach that limit. The effects can vary from inability to include new data to poorly performing site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use an innovative cloud web hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are managed by a different cluster of web servers, so we have chosen not to limit the total space they may take. Any database inside an account can be of any size, so the expansion of your sites won't be limited, given that we can keep attaching more and more machines to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a community forum, for example, you'll not need to worry that too many users may join or that they could post too many comments. Using our custom-made Hepsia CP, you shall be able to export and import a database of any size with no trouble.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will not have any troubles with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server through us as in contrast to many other web hosting service providers, we don't run everything on 1 web server. Rather, we employ a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of machines is dedicated to handling the databases of our clients. Anytime extra power or space is required, we can easily attach more web servers or hard drives to the cluster, so the storage space is basically limitless. With our services, you could grow your sites or popularize them as much as you'd like without worrying that your MySQL databases will expand too much. No matter the size of a particular database, you shall be able to export or import it effortlessly through your hosting Control Panel.
