Unlike a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site stores all its information in a database. A few examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user reviews and so forth are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not perform correctly when you reach that limit. The consequences can range from being unable to include new information to improperly working Internet site or even the website showing only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
If you obtain a Linux shared web hosting service from us, we shall never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven website which you host in the account since our plans feature unlimited database space for storage. Though large databases could have an effect on the overall performance of a site no matter what type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases could take and for the overall size of an individual database. You can easily run an online store with as many items as you would like or a forum without having to worry that you will have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users you may have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also enable you to import or export databases inside your account regardless of their size. If you face any issues with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to assist you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll not have any issues with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from us as in contrast to many other website hosting service providers, we do not run everything on 1 machine. Instead, we employ a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of machines is dedicated to managing the databases of our clients. When additional power or space is required, we can easily attach more machines or hard disks to the cluster, so the disk space is literally inexhaustible. With our services, you'll be able to expand your Internet sites or popularize them as much as you would like without worrying that your MySQL databases will grow too much. Irrespective of the size of an individual database, you will be able to export or import it easily via your hosting CP.
