Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website collects its data in a database. Just a few examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user comments etc are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not perform properly as soon as you reach that limit. The effects can vary from being unable to include new content to poorly working Internet site or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of web servers. In other words, if you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases simply because there's virtually no restriction for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disks or entire servers to the cluster as needed. Consequently, any MySQL-based website which you host in the semi-dedicated account can evolve without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with several clicks regardless how big they are.
