If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info within a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more data it stores. For instance, if you start an Internet store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs shall increase when you add more items. The same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they post, the bigger the database. If your websites become popular or you just want to include more content, this can turn into a problem in case that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the website could function correctly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the site could be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the whole website could simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
Due to our custom cloud website hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create in your cloud hosting account. Different from many web hosting providers which run everything on a single web server, we have an entire cluster which controls solely the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible due to the fact that we could add more web servers anytime if required. Thus your sites can keep evolving with no limits. You can easily import or export any database no matter its size using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to control your databases. If you require support, you can always check out our video lessons or make contact with our tech support representatives who shall assist you with any database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll not have any troubles with the size of your MySQL databases in case you have a semi-dedicated server through us because unlike many other companies, we don't run everything on one server. Rather, we employ a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of web servers is dedicated to handling the databases of our customers. Anytime more power or space is required, we can easily attach more web servers or hard drives to the cluster, so the storage space is virtually infinite. With our services, you could develop your Internet sites or popularize them as much as you would like without having to worry that your MySQL databases will grow too much. Regardless of the size of a specific database, you will be able to export or import it easily via your hosting CP.
