In comparison with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website gathers all its information inside a database. A few examples of this type of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not function properly as soon as you reach that limit. The consequences can vary from not being able to include new data to inadequately working website or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
If you acquire a shared hosting service from our company, we shall never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven Internet site that you host inside the account since our packages come with unlimited database space for storage. Although large databases may affect the functionality of an Internet site no matter what type of Internet hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases can take and for the total size of 1 database. You could run a web-based store with as many items as you would like or a forum without having to worry you will have to remove old posts or limit the amount of registered users you could have. Our Hepsia web hosting CP will also enable you to import or export databases in your account irrespective of their size. If you encounter any issues with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to help you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't have any issues with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server through us because unlike many other companies, we don't run everything on 1 server. Rather, we work with a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of servers is dedicated to managing the databases of our customers. Anytime more power or space is needed, we can just attach more machines or hard drives to the cluster, so the disk space is literally inexhaustible. With our services, you'll be able to expand your web sites or popularize them as much as you'd like without having to worry that your MySQL databases will expand too much. Whatever the size of a particular database, you shall be able to export or import it easily through your web hosting CP.
