Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all of its info in a database. A few examples of such Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site may not function correctly after you hit that limit. The consequences can range from inability to add new data to badly working Internet site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting

We use an innovative cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the web hosting accounts on it are managed by a separate cluster of web servers, so we have decided to not limit the total space they can take. Every database in an account could be of any size, so the expansion of your sites won't be limited, given that we can keep connecting more and more machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and better load balancing. In the event you run a discussion board, for instance, you shall not have to worry that way too many users may join or that they could post too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export or import a database of any size easily. If you encounter any difficulties with this task, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or you could get in touch with our support team, which is available round-the-clock, including holidays & weekends.
