In comparison with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site stores its info in a database. A few examples of such websites 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 collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the larger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website may not function correctly once you reach that limit. The effects can vary from inability to include new data to poorly working website or even the site displaying only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Website Hosting
Due to our custom cloud web hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create inside your cloud website hosting account. Different from many website hosting providers which run everything on a single server, we have an entire cluster which manages just the databases and nothing else. Consequently, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite due to the fact that we could add more web servers at any time if necessary. This way your websites could keep expanding with no restrictions. You can easily import or export any database no matter what its size via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to control your databases. If you would like help, you could always check our video lessons or communicate 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 issues with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server through our company because unlike many other website hosting service providers, we do not run everything on a single machine. Instead, we use 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 required, we can simply attach more web servers or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the storage space is virtually inexhaustible. With our services, you could grow your websites or popularize them as much as you want without having to worry that your MySQL databases will grow too much. Irrespective of the size of a specific database, you'll be able to export or import it easily through your hosting CP.
