In comparison with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website stores all of its data inside a database. Just a few examples of this kind of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user comments etc are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the larger the database becomes and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website might not perform correctly once you reach that limit. The consequences can vary from not being able to include new data to improperly working website or even the site showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting

Because of our custom cloud hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create inside your website hosting account. In contrast to many Internet hosting providers that run everything on just a single web server, we have an entire cluster that manages just the databases and nothing else. For that reason, not only is the efficiency better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite because we can add more web servers anytime if required. Thus your websites can keep growing without limits. You can import or export any database no matter its size using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to control your databases. If you would like assistance, you can always take a look at our video lessons or get in touch with our support representatives who shall assist you with all database-related questions within the hour.
