Given that script-driven apps collect their content in a database, incorporating more content 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 the website uses. If you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space its database uses shall expand anytime you add new posts and visitors leave opinions underneath them. An increasing database may become an issue if the Internet hosting account you use has limited space for storage and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general have limited database storage space. Once you reach the limit, you won't be able to add new information. Other possible outcomes are that your site may not work the way it should or that it may not appear online at all, which may result in lost potential customers.
MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting
We use an innovative cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the website hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of web servers, so we have made the decision not to limit the total space they may take. Each database inside an account could be of any size, so the development of your Internet sites will not be restricted, given that we could keep connecting additional machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion board, for instance, you shall not need to worry that too many users could join or that they might post too many comments. When you use our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size with ease. If you face any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and video tutorials or you can get in touch with our technical support team, which is available round-the-clock, including weekends & holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our semi-dedicated server accounts employ an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide limitless storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. On the contrary, the overall functionality is improved, simply because a whole cluster of web servers handles solely MySQL queries and nothing else. We can keep expanding the cluster storage and the processing power by adding new web servers and hard disk drives, so you will never be limited in terms of the size of any of your databases. You may freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or you could ask our experts to aid you with this task if you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to handle it.
