Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website gathers all of its data in a database. Just a few examples of this type of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user comments and so on are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site may not work adequately after you hit that limit. The consequences can range from being unable to add new content to inadequately working website or even the site showing only error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You won't have any problems with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from our company due to the fact that in contrast to many other web hosting service providers, we do not run everything on 1 machine. Instead, we use a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of web servers is dedicated to managing the databases of our customers. Anytime more power or space is required, we can just attach more servers or hard drives to the cluster, so the storage space is virtually inexhaustible. With our services, you could expand your web sites or popularize them as much as you want without worrying that your MySQL databases will expand too much. Regardless of the size of a specific database, you will be able to export or import it easily via your website hosting CP.
