If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info in a database and the larger the website gets, the more data it gathers. For instance, if you launch a web-based store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses will increase any time you add more products. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they post, the larger the database. If your websites become more popular or you simply want to add more content, this can become a problem in case that your website hosting account has limited database storage space. What the specific effect of geting to the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site may function adequately, but you may not be able to add any new information; the site can be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the whole site could simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Web Hosting

If you buy a web hosting through us, we shall never restrict the development of any MySQL-driven Internet site that you host inside the account since our plans include unlimited database storage space. Although massive databases might have an effect on the overall performance of a site whatever the type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases may take and for the overall size of one 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 number of registered users you can have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also enable you to import or export databases in your account irrespective of their size. If you experience any problems with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to assist you.
