If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info within a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more data it gathers. For example, if you start an e-store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs shall increase as you add more items. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they submit, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites gain popularity or you simply want to add more content, this can turn into a problem in case that your website hosting account has limited database storage space. What the specific effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the site could function adequately, but you may not be able to add any new content; the website may be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the entire site may simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
We use a cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are handled by a separate cluster of servers, so we have chosen to not limit the total space they can take. Each database in an account could be of any size, so the development of your sites will not be limited, as we can keep connecting extra machines to the cluster if required for providing both more space and much better load balancing. In case you run a discussion board, for example, you shall not have to worry that too many users may join or that they may post way too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom Hepsia CP, you will be able to export and import a database of any size easily.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll not have any difficulties with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server through our company due to the fact that in contrast to many other service providers, we don't run everything on one web server. Rather, we employ a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of machines is dedicated to managing the databases of our customers. Every time more power or space is required, we can just attach more servers or hard disks to the cluster, so the disk space is practically limitless. With our services, you could develop your Internet sites or popularize them as much as you would like without worrying that your MySQL databases shall expand too much. Whatever the size of a specific database, you'll be able to export or import it with ease via your web hosting Control Panel.
