As script-driven applications gather their content within a database, including more information to this type of site will not cause a larger size of the app files, but in a bigger size of the database your site employs. If you happen to run a WordPress blog, for instance, the disk space which its database uses shall expand when you add new posts and visitors leave comments beneath them. An increasing database can become a problem if the website hosting account you use has limited space and occasionally even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database storage area. After you reach the limit, you won't be able to add new info. Other possible outcomes are that your site may not perform the way it ought to or that it might not appear online at all, which may result in lost customers.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting
All shared website hosting accounts bought from us are created on our custom cloud hosting platform where each part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases aren't an exception and given that we can keep adding extra machines to the cluster that handles them, the space you may use for your databases is basically unrestricted. That way, you can easily develop your websites as much as you need and run any script that requires MySQL without ever having to worry that you'll reach some cap and that your websites won't work correctly. In addition, you’ll be able to freely export and import databases of any size via your Hepsia hosting CP.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated servers that we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. To put it differently, if 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 virtually no limit for the database space - we can keep adding as many HDDs or entire servers to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based website which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily grow without any limitations. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which could 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 no matter how big they are. If you don't have previous experience with such matters, you can ask our technical support for help.
