If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data within a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more information it gathers. For example, if you start a web store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase any time you add more items. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they post, the larger the database. If your websites become more popular or you just want to add more content, this could become a problem in the event that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage area. What the specific effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website can function properly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the internet site may be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the entire website might go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting
If you buy a web hosting plan
from our company, we shall never restrict the expansion of any MySQL-driven website that you host inside the account as our plans include unlimited database space for storage. Even though large databases may have an effect on the overall performance of a website no matter what type of web hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all databases might take and for the overall size of an individual database. You may run an online store with as many items as you would like or a forum without worrying that you will have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users that you could have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to import or export databases inside your account whatever their size. If you encounter any problems with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to aid you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will not have any difficulties with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server
through us since in contrast to many other service providers, we don't run everything on 1 web server. Rather, we use a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of web servers is dedicated to controlling the databases of our clients. When more power or space is needed, we can quickly attach more machines or hard drives to the cluster, so the disk space is literally limitless. With our services, you'll be able to expand your web sites or popularize them as much as you want without having to worry that your MySQL databases will expand too much. Whatever the size of an individual database, you will be able to export or import it easily using your web hosting Control Panel.
