If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its data in a database and the larger the website gets, the more information it collects. For example, if you start an online store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs shall increase when you add more goods. The same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they publish, the bigger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you simply want to add more content, this may develop into a problem if your website hosting account has limited database storage space. What the specific effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site may function adequately, but you may not be able to add any new content; the website can be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the entire website might go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated services which we offer use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of web servers. Put simply, if you use this kind of plan, you’ll no longer need to worry about the size of your databases for the reason that there's essentially no limit for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or entire servers to the cluster as needed. Therefore, any MySQL-based website that you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily grow without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to import or export your databases with a few mouse clicks regardless of how large they are. In case you do not have previous experience with such matters, you can always ask our tech support for help.
