In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website gathers all of its data in a database. Just a few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so forth are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you add, the larger the database becomes and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website might not work adequately when you hit that limit. The end results can vary from not being able to add new data to improperly performing Internet site or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
Due to our custom cloud website hosting platform, we could offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create inside your shared hosting account. Unlike many web hosting companies which run everything on just a single server, we have an entire cluster that controls solely the databases and nothing else. Because of this, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless as we can easily add more servers anytime if required. This way your Internet sites could keep expanding with no limitations. You can import or export any database regardless of its size via the Hepsia Internet hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to control your databases. If you'd like help, you could always check our educational videos or communicate with our tech support representatives who shall assist you with any database-related questions within the hour.
