Given that script-driven applications store their information inside a database, adding more information to such a website shall not lead to a bigger size of the application files, but in a bigger size of the database the website employs. In case you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space which its database employs shall expand whenever you add new posts and visitors leave opinions underneath them. An expanding database could become an issue if the Internet hosting account you use has limited space for storage and occasionally even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database storage space. After you reach the limit, you will not be able to add new information. Other possible consequences are that your site may not perform the way it ought to or that it may not appear online at all, which may result in lost customers.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting accounts bought from us are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where each part of the web hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and given that we can keep adding extra machines to the cluster that handles them, the space which you may use for your databases is basically unlimited. In this way, you could expand your sites as much as you would like and run any script that requires MySQL without ever being concerned that you'll reach some cap and that your sites won't function adequately. In addition, you’ll be able to freely export and import databases of various size using your Hepsia Internet hosting CP. Provided you have any questions in this matter, you may ask our 24x7x365 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.

Because our semi-dedicated server accounts take advantage of an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide unrestricted storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Just the opposite, the overall performance is improved, simply because a whole cluster of machines handles just MySQL queries and nothing else. We can keep growing the cluster storage and the computing power by incorporating new machines and hard disk drives, so you will never be restricted in regard to the size of any of your databases. You are able to freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or you can ask our technicians to help you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you are not sure what to do.
