Due to the fact that script-driven applications collect their information in a database, including more info to this type of site will not cause a larger size of the application files, but in a bigger size of the database your site employs. If you run a WordPress blog, for instance, the disk space which its database uses will increase as you add new posts and visitors leave responses underneath them. An expanding database can become a problem if the hosting account which you use has limited storage space and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database storage area. If you reach the limit, you won't be able to add new content. Other possible outcomes are that your website may not work the way it ought to or that it might not appear online at all, which might result in lost potential customers.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting accounts acquired from us are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where every part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and given that we can keep adding extra servers to the cluster which controls them, the space that you can use for your databases is virtually unlimited. This way, you can easily expand your Internet sites as much as you would like and run any script which requires MySQL without ever worrying that you will reach some cap and that your sites will not work correctly. In addition, you’ll be able to freely export and import databases of various size via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated hosting that we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and e-mails are managed by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, when you use such a plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases as there is virtually no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many HDDs or whole servers to the cluster as needed. For that reason, any MySQL-based site that you host in the semi-dedicated account could evolve without any restrictions. Via the phpMyAdmin instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of clicks no matter how massive they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could ask our technical support for help.
