If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information inside a database and the larger the Internet site gets, the more information it collects. For instance, if you launch a web-based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs will increase when you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they publish, the larger the database. If your websites become popular or you simply want to add more content, this may develop into a problem in the event that your hosting account has limited database storage area. The exact effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website can perform properly, but you may not be able to include any new info; the website can be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your whole site could simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a revolutionary cloud website hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are controlled by a different cluster of servers, so we have made the decision not to limit the total space they could take. Any database in an account could be of any size, so the development of your sites will not be constrained, due to the fact that we can keep connecting additional machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a discussion forum, for example, you won't need to worry that a great number of users could join or that they could post too many comments. When you use our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size without difficulty. If you experience any difficulties with this task, you should check our help articles and video lessons or you can get in touch with our tech support team, that is available 24x7, including holidays & weekends.
