Imagine that you have already fetched a few hundreds records matching certain criteria. Now, all that you need is the next 10 from that point on. MySQL has a handy command to help you with this need. It is an extension of the LIMIT command and can be used programmatically as well. This is more helpful to developers working on a pagination feature.

SELECT * FROM `database_name`.`table_name` LIMIT 10 OFFSET 500;

This will help you fetch 10 records starting at 501.
