In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site collects all its information in a database. A few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user feedback and so on are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website might not function correctly once you hit that limit. The results can vary from inability to include new information to improperly performing site or even the site showing only error messages and not being accessible at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
If you acquire a shared hosting through us, we shall never limit the growth of any MySQL-driven website that you host inside the account due to the fact that our packages include unlimited database storage space. Though large databases might affect the functionality of a website regardless of the type of web hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases might take and for the overall size of 1 database. You may run an Internet based store with as many products as you wish or a forum without worrying that you may have to remove old posts or limit the number of registered users you may have. Our Hepsia hosting CP will also allow you to import or export databases in your account whatever their size. If you encounter any difficulties with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to help you.
