If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its data inside a database and the larger the site becomes, the more info it stores. As an illustration, if you start an electronic store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they submit, the larger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this could turn into a problem in the event that your web hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the exact effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the site may function properly, but you may not be able to include any new info; the site could be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the entire internet site might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company, all your MySQL-based script applications will work perfectly as we don't impose any limitations on the size that your databases could have. We've accomplished that by using a custom-built cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages run on separate clusters of web servers, not on single machines. Thus, the system resources of a particular cluster are practically infinite because we could add additional hard drives or servers at any time as required. The Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated accounts, will enable you to export and import databases of any size without difficulty. If you use our web hosting services, your websites can expand with no restrictions, allowing you to expand your web presence and get a lot of new visitors and potential clients.
