If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data within a database and the more substantial the Internet site becomes, the more information it stores. For example, if you start a web store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase as you add more products. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they publish, the more substantial the database. If your websites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this could develop into a problem in case that your web hosting account has limited database space. The exact effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the website can function correctly, but you may not be able to include any new info; the site could be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your entire website could simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are managed by a separate cluster of servers, so we have made a decision not to limit the total space they could take. Each database in an account could be of any size, so the growth of your Internet sites shall not be limited, as we can keep attaching extra servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a discussion board, for instance, you won't have to worry that a great number of users could join or that they might post way too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export and import a database of any size easily. If you experience any difficulties with this task, you can check our help articles and instructional videos or you could get in touch with our technical support team, that is available 24-7, including holidays and weekends.
