If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its data in a database and the larger the site becomes, the more information it collects. For example, if you start an online store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase when you add more items. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they publish, the more substantial the database. If your websites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this can become a problem in the event that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the website could work properly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the internet site could be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the entire website may simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting
We use a revolutionary cloud website hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared website hosting accounts on it are handled by a different cluster of servers, so we have chosen to not limit the total space they may take. Any database in an account could be of any size, so the growth of your sites will not be constrained, given that we can keep connecting more and more web servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In case you run a discussion forum, for example, you'll not need to worry that too many users may join or that they might post too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom Hepsia CP, you will be able to export or import a database of any size easily. If you encounter any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and instructional videos or you can communicate with our tech support crew, which is available 24-7-365, including holidays and weekends.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll not have any difficulties with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server through us as in contrast to many other website hosting service providers, we don't run everything on a single machine. Rather, we employ a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of machines is dedicated to managing the databases of our clients. Anytime extra power or space is required, we can simply attach more web servers or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the disk space is literally infinite. With our services, you may expand your Internet sites or popularize them as much as you want without worrying that your MySQL databases will grow too much. Whatever the size of a specific database, you'll be able to export or import it easily using your website hosting Control Panel.
