Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all of its info in a database. Just a couple of examples of this type of Internet 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 on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you add, the larger the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your Internet site may not work adequately as soon as you reach that limit. The effects can vary from not being able to include new content to poorly working Internet site or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting
We use a revolutionary cloud website hosting platform and all databases created in the shared website hosting accounts on it are controlled by a different cluster of web servers, so we have chosen not to limit the total space they can take. Every database inside an account can be of any size, so the growth of your websites will not be constrained, given that we can keep connecting more and more servers to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a discussion board, for instance, you shall not need to worry that too many users may join or that they may post way too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom Hepsia CP, you shall be able to export or import a database of any size without difficulty. If you come across any difficulties with this task, you should check our help articles and video lessons or you could get in touch with our tech support team, which is available 24x7, including weekends & holidays.
