Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site gathers all its data inside a database. A few examples of this sort of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses etc are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you include, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site may not perform properly once you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to include new content to inadequately working site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

Every database in an account may be of any size, so the growth of your websites shall not be restricted, due to the fact that we can keep attaching more and more web servers to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and better load balancing.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages which we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of machines. In other words, when you use such a plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's practically no limitation for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disks or entire machines to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based web site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily grow without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks irrespective of how large they are. If you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our technical support for help.
