In contrast to a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site gathers all its information in a database. A few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, rates, blog posts, user reviews and so on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you include, the larger the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site might not work correctly as soon as you reach that limit. The effects can range from not being able to include new content to poorly functioning Internet site or even the site showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Web Hosting

Due to our custom cloud website hosting platform, we could offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create in your cloud web hosting account. Unlike many web hosting providers which run everything on a single server, we have a whole cluster that handles only the databases and nothing else. Consequently, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible because we can easily add more machines anytime if needed. That way your sites could keep developing without limitations. You can easily import or export any database no matter its size via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to control your databases. If you'd like help, you can always check our video lessons or make contact with our technical support representatives who will aid you with any database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll not have any problems with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from our company because unlike many other providers, we don't run everything on one machine. Rather, we use a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of machines is dedicated to managing the databases of our clients. Every time more power or space is needed, we can simply attach more machines or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the storage space is basically limitless. With our services, you can grow your web sites or popularize them as much as you want without worrying that your MySQL databases shall grow too much. Regardless of the size of a particular database, you'll be able to export or import it easily via your web hosting CP.
