If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data in a database and the larger the site gets, the more information it stores. For example, if you start an electronic store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase whenever you add more products. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they publish, the more substantial the database. If your websites become popular or you simply want to include more content, this may develop into a problem if your web hosting account has limited database storage area. What the exact effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the site could function properly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the website could be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your whole website might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and emails are handled by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, when you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases due to the fact that there's virtually no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disk drives or whole machines to the cluster as required. As a result, any MySQL-based site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account could develop without any limits. Using the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed through the Hepsia hosting CP, you shall be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks regardless of how massive they are.
