Since script-driven applications store their content inside a database, including more content to this kind of website shall not result in a bigger size of the app files, but in a bigger size of the database your website employs. If you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space its database employs will grow every time you add new posts and site visitors leave responses below them. An increasing database could become an issue if the web hosting account you use has limited space for storage and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general have limited database space. After you reach the limit, you shall not be able to add new content. Other probable results are that your website may not work the way it ought to or that it might not appear online at all, which could result in lost potential customers.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
We use a cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are controlled by a different cluster of web servers, so we've chosen not to limit the total space they can take. Each database inside an account could be of any size, so the expansion of your sites won't be constrained, since we can easily keep connecting more and more machines to the cluster if required for providing both more space and far better load balancing. If you run a discussion board, for instance, you will not have to worry that too many users may join or that they may post way too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to export and import a database of any size with ease. If you face any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and video lessons or you can communicate with our tech support team, that's available 24/7/365, including holidays and weekends.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated plans which we offer you use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are managed by their own clusters of web servers. Put simply, if you use this kind of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases because there is practically no restriction for the database space - we can keep adding as many HDDs or whole servers to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based site that you host inside the semi-dedicated account may expand without any limits. With the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks regardless how big they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for assistance.
