Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site collects all of its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this type of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, prices, blog posts, user comments etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site may not work correctly when you hit that limit. The results can vary from not being able to include new info to improperly working site or even the site showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting accounts acquired through us are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where every single part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and because we can easily keep adding more servers to the cluster which manages them, the space you could use for your databases is practically unrestricted. Thus, you can grow your Internet sites as much as you need and run any script which requires MySQL without ever worrying you'll reach some cap and that your websites won't function as expected. You'll also be able to freely export and import databases of any size through your Hepsia web hosting CP. If you have any questions in this matter, you can ask our 24x7x365 technical support to help you with either one of these tasks.
