Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site stores all its data in a database. Just a couple of examples of this type of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user comments and so forth are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site might not perform correctly once you hit that limit. The results can vary from inability to include new information to poorly working Internet site or even the website displaying only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Hosting
Because of our custom cloud website hosting platform, we can offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases that you create in your hosting account. Unlike many hosting companies which run everything on just a single web server, we have a whole cluster which manages only the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the functionality better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite because we could add more web servers anytime if needed. Thus your sites could keep growing without limitations. You could import or export any database no matter its size using the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to control your databases. If you'd like assistance, you may always check out our educational videos or get in touch with our technical support representatives who will help you with any database-related questions within the hour.
