If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info inside a database and the more substantial the website gets, the more data it gathers. For instance, if you launch a web-based store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs shall increase when you add more products. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they publish, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites become more popular or you just want to include more content, this could turn into a problem in the event that your website hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the website could work correctly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the site could be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the whole internet site may simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts bought through us are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where every part of the web hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and since we can keep adding extra servers to the cluster that controls them, the space which you could use for your databases is virtually unrestricted. This way, you can easily expand your sites as much as you would like and run any script that requires MySQL without ever worrying you'll reach some cap and that your sites won't perform as expected. Additionally, you'll be able to freely export and import databases of any size through your Hepsia website hosting CP. Provided you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24/7 technical support to aid you with either one of these tasks.

Consequently, any MySQL-based website that you host in the semi-dedicated account could grow without any limits. With the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with several clicks no matter how big they are.
