Unlike a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site stores all of its information inside a database. A few examples of this type of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user responses and so forth are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database gets and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not work adequately after you reach that limit. The end results can vary from inability to include new info to poorly functioning site or even the website displaying only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since our semi-dedicated server accounts take advantage of an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide you with unrestricted storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account while not compromising the quality of the service. On the contrary, the efficiency is improved, due to the fact that an entire cluster of web servers handles only MySQL queries and absolutely nothing else. We could keep growing the cluster storage and the computing power by incorporating new servers and hard drives, so you'll never be confined in regard to the size of any of your databases. You’ll be able to freely export or import any MySQL database via the phpMyAdmin tool in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel or you may ask our qualified professionals to assist you with this task if you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to handle it.
