If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data inside a database and the larger the website gets, the more info it collects. For instance, if you start an e-store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase any time you add more products. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they post, the larger the database. If your sites become more popular or you would like to add more content, this can develop into a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site may perform correctly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the internet site could be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the whole internet site could simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Hosting
If you get a hosting from us, we will never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven website that you host in the account because our plans come with unlimited database space for storage. Although enormous databases could influence the functionality of an Internet site whatever the type of Internet hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases can take and for the overall size of a single database. You could run an Internet store with as many products as you would like or a forum without worrying that you may have to remove old posts or limit the amount of registered users you could have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to import or export databases in your account regardless of their size. If you face any issues with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to aid you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company, your MySQL-based script applications shall work properly as we don't impose any limits on the size which your databases could have. We've achieved that by using a custom-built cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages run on different clusters of servers, not on single machines. In this way, the system resources of a given cluster are literally inexhaustible because we could add extra hard drives or servers anytime if needed. The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated accounts, will enable you to export and import databases of any size without difficulty. If you use our hosting services, your websites can evolve without any limits, to help you expand your web presence and get lots of new visitors and potential clients.
