If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its data in a database and the larger the website becomes, the more information it collects. As an illustration, if you start a web store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase whenever you add more goods. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they publish, the bigger the database. If your websites become popular or you simply want to include more content, this might develop into a problem if your hosting account has limited database storage space. The exact effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website can perform correctly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the site can be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole site could simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated plans which we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of machines. To put it differently, when you use such a plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases because there's essentially no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many HDDs or whole servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily evolve without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks irrespective of how massive they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our technical support for assistance.
