If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its data inside a database and the larger the Internet site becomes, the more data it collects. As an example, if you launch an Internet store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs will increase when you add more items. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they post, the larger the database. If your websites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this could be a problem if your website hosting account has limited database storage space. What the particular effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the site can perform correctly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the internet site could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the entire website may simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. Basically, when you use such a plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases as there is essentially no limitation for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard drives or entire web servers to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based website that you host in the semi-dedicated account can easily expand without any limitations. Using the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks regardless of how massive they are. In case you don't have previous experience with such matters, you could ask our tech support for assistance.
