Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site gathers all its info in a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user reviews etc are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you add, the larger the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site may not function correctly when you hit that limit. The results can range from not being able to include new data to improperly working website or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
If you acquire a Linux cloud package from us, we shall never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven site which you host inside the account as our packages come with unlimited database space. Though large databases could affect the performance of a site whatever the type of hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases could take and for the total size of an individual database. You could run an online store with as many items as you wish or a forum without having to worry that you will have to delete old posts or limit the number of registered users you may have. Our Hepsia web hosting CP shall also permit you to import or export databases within your account whatever their size. If you experience any issues with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to assist you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of servers. Put simply, if you use this kind of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's virtually no restriction for the database space - we could keep adding as many HDDs or entire machines to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily evolve without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks no matter how massive they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support team for help.
