Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site collects all its info in a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user comments etc are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you add, the larger the database gets and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site may not function adequately when you reach that limit. The consequences can vary from not being able to add new info to badly working website or even the website showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases created in the shared hosting accounts on it are managed by a different cluster of web servers, so we've made a decision to not limit the total space they could take. Each database in an account could be of any size, so the development of your sites won't be restricted, since we can keep connecting extra machines to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In case you run a community forum, for example, you'll not have to worry that too many users could join or that they may post too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom Hepsia CP, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size without difficulty. If you experience any problems with this task, you should check our help articles and video tutorials or you could contact our technical support team, which is available 24/7/365, including weekends and holidays.
