In comparison with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website collects all its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of such Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user comments etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you add, the bigger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site might not work correctly as soon as you reach that limit. The consequences can range from being unable to include new info to improperly working website or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

You could run a web-based store with as many items as you'd like or a forum without having to worry that you will have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users you can have. Our Hepsia web hosting CP shall also permit you to import or export databases inside your account whatever their size.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are managed by their own clusters of machines. Basically, if you use this kind of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there is virtually no restriction for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disk drives or entire servers to the cluster as required. For that reason, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily develop without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks regardless of how big they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could always ask our technical support for help.
