Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site gathers all of its info in a database. A few examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user comments and so on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you add, the bigger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website may not function properly when you hit that limit. The effects can range from being unable to include new information to badly working site or even the website showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and emails are handled by their own clusters of machines. Put simply, when you use this kind of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there's essentially no limitation for the database space - we can keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole web servers to the cluster as needed. Therefore, any MySQL-based website that you host inside the semi-dedicated account could expand without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which can be accessed through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks regardless of how big they are. If you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support for help.
