In comparison with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website collects all its information in a database. A few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not function properly when you reach that limit. The results can vary from not being able to include new data to badly working site or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

If you buy a website hosting through our company, we will never limit the development of any MySQL-driven Internet site that you host in the account since our plans feature unlimited database space for storage. Though large databases can have an effect on the overall performance of a site regardless of the type of hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all of the databases can take and for the overall size of an individual database. You can run an Internet based store with as many products as you'd like or a forum without having to worry that you may have to remove old posts or limit the number of registered users which you may have. Our Hepsia hosting CP will also enable you to import or export databases inside your account irrespective of their size. If you experience any difficulties with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to help you.
