Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site gathers all of its data in a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user reviews and so forth are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you include, the more substantial the database gets and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not function properly once you reach that limit. The consequences can range from not being able to add new information to improperly functioning site or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated servers which we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of servers. Simply put, if you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases as there's virtually no limit for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disks or whole web servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based website that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily expand without any restrictions. Using the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to import or export your databases with several clicks no matter how large they are. In case you lack previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support team for assistance.
