In contrast to a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site collects all its info inside a database. A few examples of this type of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the more substantial the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site might not work adequately once you reach that limit. The consequences can vary from being unable to add new info to poorly performing website or even the site showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts purchased through us are created on our custom cloud Internet hosting platform where every part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and because we're able to keep adding additional machines to the cluster which manages them, the space which you could use for your databases is basically unrestricted. In this way, you could expand your sites as much as you would like and run any script which requires MySQL without ever being worried that you will reach some cap and that your Internet sites will not perform correctly. You will also be able to freely export and import databases of any size through your Hepsia web hosting CP. In case you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24x7x365 tech support to assist you with either one of these tasks.
