Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site stores all its data inside a database. A few examples of this type of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user responses etc are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you include, the larger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site might not perform properly when you hit that limit. The consequences can range from not being able to add new content to poorly working site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

We use a cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases set up in the website hosting accounts on it are handled by a different cluster of servers, so we have chosen not to limit the total space they can take. Every database in an account may be of any size, so the growth of your Internet sites will not be limited, due to the fact that we could keep connecting additional servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and better load balancing. In case you run a discussion board, for example, you will not have to worry that way too many users could join or that they might post way too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export or import a database of any size easily. If you come across any problems with this task, you can look at our help articles and video tutorials or you could communicate with our technical support team, that's available round-the-clock, including weekends and holidays.
