Since script-driven applications collect their information in a database, incorporating more content to this sort of site won't lead to a larger size of the application files, but in a bigger size of the database your site employs. If you happen to run a WordPress blog, for instance, the disk space that its database uses will expand every time you add new posts and site visitors leave opinions below them. An increasing database may develop into a problem 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. If you reach the limit, you shall not be able to add new content. Other possible outcomes are that your site may not work the way it ought to or that it may not appear online at all, which can result in lost potential clients.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts purchased through us are created on our custom cloud website hosting platform where each and every part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and given that we're able to keep adding more servers to the cluster which handles them, the space you could use for your databases is virtually unlimited. In this way, you can grow your websites as much as you want and run any script which requires MySQL without ever being worried you'll reach some cap and that your sites won't work adequately. You will also be able to freely export and import databases of any size through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

The semi-dedicated servers which we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of servers. Basically, when you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there is practically no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole machines to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based website which you host inside the semi-dedicated account could develop without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed through the Hepsia website hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks irrespective of how massive they are.
