Since script-driven apps collect their content in a database, adding more info to this type of site shall not result in a larger size of the application files, but in a larger size of the database the website uses. In case you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space which its database uses will grow anytime you add new posts and visitors leave opinions below them. A growing database could become a problem if the Internet hosting account which you use has limited space for storage and occasionally even plans with unlimited space in general have limited database space. If you reach the limit, you will not be able to add new info. Other potential consequences are that your website may not perform the way it should or that it might not appear online at all, which could result in lost customers.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
Because of our custom cloud website hosting platform, we can offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create inside your shared hosting account. Unlike many web hosting providers which run everything on one server, we have an entire cluster that controls just the databases and nothing else. For that reason, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible as we could add more machines anytime if required. This way your sites could keep evolving without limitations. You could import or export any database no matter what its size through the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to control your databases. If you would like support, you may always check out our educational videos or make contact with our support representatives who will help you with any database-related questions within the hour.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll not have any problems with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from our company because in contrast to many other service providers, we don't run everything on a single machine. Rather, we employ a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of machines is dedicated to managing the databases of our customers. Every time extra power or space is required, we can easily attach more servers or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the disk space is virtually inexhaustible. With our services, you'll be able to grow your websites or popularize them as much as you would like without having to worry that your MySQL databases will expand too much. No matter the size of a specific database, you shall be able to export or import it easily via your website hosting CP.
