Unlike a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website gathers all its data inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this type of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, prices, blog posts, user comments and so on are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you include, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site might not work properly as soon as you reach that limit. The end results can vary from not being able to include new information to inadequately working site or even the website showing only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will not have any issues with the size of your MySQL databases in case you have a semi-dedicated server from us since unlike many other service providers, we don't run everything on 1 server. Instead, we work with a cloud platform, so a whole cluster of machines is dedicated to controlling the databases of our customers. Anytime extra power or space is required, we can simply attach more machines or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the storage space is basically inexhaustible. With our services, you'll be able to develop your sites or popularize them as much as you want without worrying that your MySQL databases will expand too much. Regardless of the size of an individual database, you'll be able to export or import it easily using your website hosting CP.
