In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site gathers all its information in a database. Just a few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you add, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website may not perform correctly once you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from not being able to include new content to poorly performing website or even the site showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Website Hosting

Thanks to our custom cloud hosting platform, we are able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create in your cloud website hosting account. Unlike many web hosting companies that run everything on just a single web server, we have a whole cluster that manages solely the databases and nothing else. For that reason, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also immense because we can add more machines at any time if required. Thus your sites can keep developing with no limits. You can easily import or export any database irrespective of its size via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to handle your databases. If you would like help, you can always take a look at our video tutorials or communicate with our tech support representatives who will assist you with any database-related questions within the hour.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll not have any troubles with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from us because different from many other web hosting service providers, we don't run everything on 1 web server. Instead, we use a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of machines is dedicated to controlling the databases of our customers. Every time more power or space is needed, we can just attach more machines or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the storage space is virtually limitless. With our services, you could develop your web sites or popularize them as much as you would like without worrying that your MySQL databases shall grow too much. Whatever the size of a specific database, you'll be able to export or import it easily using your hosting CP.
