In comparison with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site stores its information inside a database. A few examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site may not function properly after you hit that limit. The results can vary from being unable to add new information to poorly performing Internet site or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a groundbreaking cloud hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are controlled by a separate cluster of web servers, so we've decided not to limit the total space they can take. Any database inside an account may be of any size, so the expansion of your sites will not be constrained, given that we can easily keep connecting additional web servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a discussion forum, for instance, you will not have to worry that too many users may join or that they may post way too many comments. When you use our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to export or import a database of any size without difficulty. If you face any difficulties with this task, you can look at our help articles and video tutorials or you could get in touch with our technical support team, that is available 24/7/365, including holidays and weekends.
