If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info within a database and the bigger the website becomes, the more data it collects. For example, if you start an online store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase as you add more products. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they submit, the larger the database. If your sites become popular or you would like to add more content, this might develop into a problem in the event that your website hosting account has limited database space. What the particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site can perform properly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the site may be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the whole website might go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting accounts acquired from us are created on our custom cloud hosting platform where each part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and considering the fact that we're able to keep adding more servers to the cluster which manages them, the space that you may use for your databases is virtually unlimited. In this way, you can develop your sites as much as you need and run any script that requires MySQL without ever being worried that you will reach some cap and that your sites won't work adequately. You'll be able to freely export and import databases of any size via your Hepsia web hosting CP. Provided you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24/7 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account through our company, all your MySQL-based script applications will work perfectly due to the fact that we do not impose any limitations on the size your databases could have. We have achieved that by using a custom-built cloud platform in which the files, databases and emails run on separate clusters of servers, not on single machines. Thus, the system resources of a specific cluster are virtually endless since we could add more hard drives or servers at any time as required. The Hepsia website hosting CP, provided with all semi-dedicated accounts, will enable you to export and import databases of any size easily. If you use our Internet hosting services, your websites can grow without limits, so that you can expand your online presence and get loads of new site visitors and potential clients.
