As an example, if you launch an Internet store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase when you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they post, the larger the database. If your websites gain popularity or you simply want to include more content, this might be a problem in case that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage space. The specific effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the site can perform adequately, but you may not be able to add any new info; the site could be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire internet site might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

Due to our custom cloud hosting platform, we can offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create inside your shared hosting account. Unlike many Internet hosting providers which run everything on one machine, we have an entire cluster that controls just the databases and nothing else.

You can easily import or export any database irrespective of its size via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to handle your databases.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers which we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, when you use such a plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases simply because there's practically no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disks or entire machines to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based web site that you host in the semi-dedicated account may grow without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless of how large they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our tech support for assistance.
