Unlike a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven website collects its information in a database. Just a few examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user reviews and so forth are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the more substantial the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site might not work properly after you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to add new information to improperly working site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being accessible at all.

Because of our custom cloud hosting platform, we could offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create inside your shared hosting account. Different from many hosting providers which run everything on just a single machine, we have an entire cluster that controls only the databases and nothing else. Consequently, not only is the efficiency better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite due to the fact that we can add more servers anytime if necessary. Thus your websites can keep growing with no restrictions. You could import or export any database irrespective of its size using the Hepsia website hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to control your databases.
