If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its information within a database and the bigger the site gets, the more data it stores. As an example, if you start an Internet store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more products. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they submit, the bigger the database. If your Internet sites become popular or you would like to include more content, this can be a problem if your web hosting account has limited database storage space. What the exact effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the website could perform properly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the internet site could be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire internet site could simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer you use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, if you use this type of plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about the size of your databases as there's practically no limitation for the database space - we could keep adding as many hard disk drives or entire servers to the cluster as needed. As a result, any MySQL-based Internet site which you host inside the semi-dedicated account can easily expand without any limits. Via the phpMyAdmin software instrument, which could be accessed from the Hepsia web hosting CP, you will be able to import or export your databases with a couple of mouse clicks irrespective of how large they are. If you lack previous experience with such matters, you could ask our technical support for assistance.
