In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site gathers all its data in a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user reviews etc are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you add, the bigger the database gets and if your web hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site might not function properly when you hit that limit. The effects can vary from inability to include new content to improperly performing Internet site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

Due to our custom cloud website hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create in your website hosting account. Unlike many website hosting companies that run everything on one server, we have an entire cluster that manages solely the databases and nothing else. Consequently, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible as we can easily add more servers anytime if needed. In this way your Internet sites can keep evolving with no limits. You can import or export any database no matter what its size through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to manage your databases. If you need assistance, you can always check out our video lessons or get in touch with our tech support representatives who shall aid you with all database-related questions within the hour.
