In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website gathers all its data in a database. A few examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user comments etc are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the content you add, the larger the database becomes and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site may not work adequately when you reach that limit. The end results can vary from inability to add new info to improperly working website or even the website showing only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts bought through us are created on our custom cloud website hosting platform where every part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and considering the fact that we can keep adding more machines to the cluster that manages them, the space that you may use for your databases is basically unrestricted. This way, you can grow your Internet sites as much as you would like and run any script that requires MySQL without ever having to worry that you'll reach some cap and that your websites will not work as expected. You'll also be able to freely export and import databases of various size via your Hepsia Internet hosting CP. If you have any questions in this matter, you could ask our 24/7/365 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.
