As script-driven applications gather their content in a database, adding more info to this kind of Internet site will not result in a bigger size of the application files, but in a larger size of the database your site uses. In case you run a WordPress blog, for instance, the disk space that its database uses will grow every time you add new posts and website visitors leave responses below them. An expanding database could become a problem if the Internet hosting account that you use has limited space and occasionally even plans with unlimited space in general have limited database storage space. If you reach the limit, you won't be able to add new info. Other possible consequences are that your site may not work the way it should or that it may not appear online at all, which might result in lost potential customers.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
Because of our custom cloud web hosting platform, we are able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create in your cloud hosting
account. Different from many web hosting companies which run everything on a single machine, we have an entire cluster that handles just the databases and nothing else. Consequently, not only is the efficiency better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible due to the fact that we could add more servers at any time if necessary. In this way your websites can keep developing with no limits. You could import or export any database regardless of its size through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to manage your databases. If you would like assistance, you may always take a look at our educational videos or get hold of our tech support representatives who shall help you with all database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Linux semi-dedicated servers
that we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of web servers. Basically, when you use this kind of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there is practically no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole web servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account could develop without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin instrument, which can be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks irrespective of how big they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support team for help.
