Since script-driven apps store their content inside a database, incorporating more content to such a site will not lead to a larger size of the application files, but in a bigger size of the database your site employs. If you happen to run a WordPress blog, for instance, the disk space that its database employs shall increase whenever you add new posts and website visitors leave comments beneath them. An expanding database may become an issue if the hosting account you use has limited space and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general have limited database storage area. When you reach the limit, you will not be able to add new information. Other potential consequences are that your internet site may not perform the way it should or that it might not appear online at all, which may result in lost potential customers.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

Because of our custom cloud web hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create inside your cloud hosting account. Unlike many hosting providers which run everything on a single web server, we have an entire cluster that handles solely the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the efficiency better, but the cluster capacity is also immense due to the fact that we could add more servers anytime if needed. This way your Internet sites could keep evolving without limitations. You could import or export any database irrespective of its size through the Hepsia web hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to manage your databases. If you require assistance, you can always check our educational videos or get hold of our support representatives who will assist you with any database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans which we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, if you use such a plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's practically no limit for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disks or whole machines to the cluster as needed. As a result, any MySQL-based site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can grow without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks no matter how large they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for help.
