Since script-driven applications collect their info inside a database, incorporating more content to this sort of website will not result in a bigger size of the app files, but in a bigger size of the database your Internet site uses. In case you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space that its database uses will increase as you add new posts and site visitors leave comments below them. An increasing database may become an issue if the website hosting account which you use has limited storage space and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database storage space. When you reach the limit, you won't be able to add new content. Other possible results are that your website may not perform the way it should or that it may not appear online at all, which may result in lost customers.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting plan through us, we will never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven website that you host inside the account because our plans include unlimited database space for storage. Although large databases might affect the overall performance of a website irrespective of the type of Internet hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases can take and for the total size of a single database. You could run an Internet based store with as many products and services as you want or a forum without having to worry that you may have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users that you may have. Our Hepsia hosting CP shall also allow you to import or export databases within your account whatever their size. If you face any issues with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to help you.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans that we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, 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 virtually no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard drives or whole machines to the cluster as needed. As a result, any MySQL-based website which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can grow without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which could be accessed from the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with several 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 for assistance.
