In contrast to a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site collects all its info in a database. Just a few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user responses etc are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site might not function correctly after you reach that limit. The consequences can range from inability to include new content to poorly performing Internet site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

If you get a Linux shared hosting package from our company, we will never limit the growth of any MySQL-driven site which you host in the account as our plans feature unlimited database storage space. Although massive databases can affect the overall performance of a site irrespective of the type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases can take and for the overall size of a single database. You can easily run a web-based store with as many products as you'd like or a forum without worrying that you will have to delete old posts or limit the number of registered users that you can have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to import or export databases in your account irrespective of their size. If you experience any problems with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to assist you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will not have any issues with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from us as unlike many other providers, we do not run everything on 1 machine. Rather, we work with a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of web servers is dedicated to handling the databases of our customers. Every time additional power or space is needed, we can simply attach more machines or hard disks to the cluster, so the disk space is basically inexhaustible. With our services, you could expand 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 specific database, you'll be able to export or import it easily via your web hosting Control Panel.
