In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site gathers all of its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you add, the more substantial the database gets and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your Internet site may not work properly once you reach that limit. The consequences can range from being unable to include new data to improperly functioning site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

If you get a Linux website hosting package from our company, we will never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven site which you host in the account as our packages include unlimited database space for storage. Although massive databases might influence the overall performance of an Internet site irrespective of the type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases may take and for the total size of a single database. You could run a web-based store with as many products as you'd like or a forum without having to worry that you may have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users you could have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to import or export databases within your account whatever their size. If you encounter any difficulties with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to assist you.
