If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its information inside a database and the bigger the Internet site gets, the more information it collects. For example, if you start an electronic store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase when you add more goods. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they post, the bigger the database. If your sites become popular or you would like to include more content, this might turn into a problem in case that your web hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of geting to the limit will be depends on the script - the website can work correctly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the site could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the entire internet site could simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Hosting

Because of our custom cloud website hosting platform, we are able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create inside your hosting account. Different from many website hosting providers that run everything on one server, we have a whole cluster which handles only the databases and nothing else. For that reason, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless because we can add more web servers at any time if required. That way your sites can keep growing without limits. You can import or export any database no matter what its size through the Hepsia hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to control your databases. If you want help, you may always take a look at our video tutorials or get in touch with our support representatives who will assist you with all database-related questions within the hour.

We can easily keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by putting in new machines and hard drives, so you'll never be restricted when it comes to the size of any of your databases. You’ll be able to freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel or you can ask our experts to assist you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you are not sure what you should do.
