As script-driven apps collect their info in a database, including more information to this type of site will not cause a larger size of the application files, but in a larger size of the database the site uses. In the event you run a WordPress blog, for instance, the disk space that its database uses shall expand anytime you add new posts and site visitors leave comments underneath them. An increasing database can become an issue if the web hosting account that you use has limited storage space and occasionally 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 info. Other possible consequences 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 customers.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Website Hosting
We use a cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and all databases set up in the cloud website hosting accounts on it are controlled by a separate cluster of web servers, so we've made the decision not to limit the total space they can take. Each database inside an account could be of any size, so the expansion of your sites won't be limited, due to the fact that we can keep attaching additional servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In case you run a community forum, for example, you'll not have to worry that too many users could join or that they may post way too many comments. Using our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export and import a database of any size without difficulty. If you come across any problems with this task, you should check our help articles and video tutorials or you can communicate with our technical support team, that is available 24-7, including weekends and holidays.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated servers that we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and emails are handled by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, if you use such a plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there is essentially no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or entire web servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based web site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account may evolve without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks no matter how large they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our tech support team for assistance.
