Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website stores all of its info inside a database. Just a few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, prices, blog posts, user reviews and so on are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website might not function correctly once you reach that limit. The consequences can range from inability to add new information to poorly working Internet site or even the website displaying only error messages and not being accessible at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
If you obtain a Linux cloud hosting plan from our company, we shall never restrict the expansion of any MySQL-driven Internet site that you host in the account as our plans include unlimited database space. Despite the fact that huge databases can affect the overall performance of a site whatever the type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases can take and for the total size of 1 database. You could run an Internet based store with as many products as you'd like or a forum without worrying you will have to remove old posts or limit the amount of registered users that you can have. Our Hepsia hosting CP shall also enable you to import or export databases within your account no matter their size. If you face any issues with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to help you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will not have any problems with the size of your MySQL databases in case you have a semi-dedicated server from our company as different from many other website hosting service providers, we do not run everything on 1 machine. Rather, we use a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of machines is dedicated to handling the databases of our clients. Whenever extra power or space is required, we can easily attach more machines or hard drives to the cluster, so the disk space is literally limitless. With our services, you can grow your web sites or popularize them as much as you'd like without having to worry that your MySQL databases will expand too much. Regardless of the size of a particular database, you will be able to export or import it with ease via your web hosting CP.
