Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website collects all its data inside a database. Just a few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user comments and so on are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you include, the larger the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site might not perform adequately once you reach that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to include new info to badly working website or even the site showing only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

If you get a website hosting plan through our company, we will never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven site that you host inside the account as our plans feature unlimited database space. Though large databases could influence the functionality of a site no matter what type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases can take and for the total size of 1 database. You can run a web-based store with as many items as you'd like or a forum without having to worry you will have to remove old posts or limit the number of registered users that you may have. Our Hepsia Internet hosting CP will also permit you to import or export databases within your account regardless of their size. If you encounter any issues with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to aid you.
