If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info in a database and the bigger the site gets, the more information it stores. For example, if you launch a web-based store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs shall increase any time you add more goods. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they submit, the larger the database. If your websites become more popular or you just want to include more content, this can turn into a problem in case that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage space. What the specific effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the site can work correctly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the internet site could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your whole site might go offline.

As our semi-dedicated server accounts use an advanced cloud platform, we can afford to provide you with unlimited storage space for the MySQL databases created inside any such account without compromising the quality of the service. On the contrary, the functionality is improved, simply because an entire cluster of machines handles only MySQL queries and nothing else. We can easily keep growing the cluster storage and the processing power by adding new web servers and hard drives, so you will never be limited in terms of the size of any one of your databases. You could freely export or import any MySQL database using the phpMyAdmin tool inside your Hepsia website hosting CP or you could ask our professionals to assist you with this task provided you have no previous experience and you are not sure how to handle it.
