If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its info within a database and the larger the site gets, the more info it gathers. For example, if you start an electronic store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs will increase when you add more products. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they publish, the larger the database. If your sites become more popular or you simply want to include more content, this can turn into a problem in case that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the site can perform properly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the internet site could be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the whole internet site could simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Hosting

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers that we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of machines. In other words, if you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases simply because there is essentially no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard drives or entire web servers to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based website which you host in the semi-dedicated account could evolve without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks regardless of how massive they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support for help.
