Given that script-driven apps collect their content inside a database, incorporating more information to this kind of site will not result in a bigger size of the app files, but in a bigger size of the database the Internet site uses. If you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space its database employs shall grow anytime you add new posts and visitors leave comments beneath them. An increasing database can become an issue if the website 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 shall not be able to add new info. Other probable consequences are that your website may not work the way it should or that it may not appear online at all, which can result in lost potential customers.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are managed by an independent cluster of web servers, so we've chosen to not limit the total space they can take.

If you run a community forum, for example, you will not have to worry that too many users could join or that they could post far too many comments. Using our custom-made Hepsia CP, you shall be able to export or import a database of any size easily.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since our semi-dedicated server accounts use an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to offer unrestricted storage space for the MySQL databases created in any such account without compromising the quality of the service. Quite the opposite, the overall efficiency is improved, due to the fact that a whole cluster of web servers handles only MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We can keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by incorporating new machines and hard drives, so you'll never be confined in regard to the size of any one of your databases. You may freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia Internet hosting CP or you could ask our professionals to help you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you aren't sure what you should do.
