If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info inside a database and the bigger the Internet site gets, the more information it gathers. As an illustration, if you start an Internet based store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase any time you add more goods. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they post, the larger the database. If your Internet sites become popular or you just want to include more content, this may become a problem if your website hosting account has limited database storage space. What the particular effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the website may perform adequately, but you may not be able to add any new information; the site can be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your whole internet site may simply go offline.

If you purchase a shared web hosting service from us, we shall never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven website which you host in the account since our packages come with unlimited database space.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting services we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of machines. Put simply, when you use this kind of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases as there's virtually no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole web servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account may evolve without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed through the Hepsia Internet hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks regardless of how massive they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could ask our technical support for assistance.
