If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its data in a database and the more substantial the Internet site becomes, the more data it gathers. For instance, if you launch an e-store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase any time you add more items. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they post, the bigger the database. If your websites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this may turn into a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database space. What the specific effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site could function correctly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the site can be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your entire site might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

Thanks to our custom cloud hosting platform, we are able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create in your cloud hosting account. Unlike many web hosting companies that run everything on just a single server, we have a whole cluster which handles only the databases and nothing else. Consequently, not only is the overall performance better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite due to the fact that we can add more machines at any time if necessary. In this way your websites could keep expanding with no limits. You can import or export any database no matter its size through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to control your databases. If you'd like support, you may always take a look at our instructional videos or communicate with our tech support representatives who shall assist you with any database-related questions within the hour.

Quite the contrary, the functionality is improved, simply because an entire cluster of web servers handles only MySQL queries and nothing else. We can easily keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by incorporating new servers and hard disks, so you'll never be restricted in regard to the size of any of your databases. You’ll be able to freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia Internet hosting CP or you can ask our qualified professionals to aid you with this task in case you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to handle it.
