Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site collects its information in a database. A few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user responses etc are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you include, the more substantial the database gets and if your website hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not perform correctly after you reach that limit. The consequences can vary from being unable to add new content to poorly working website or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

Due to our custom cloud website hosting platform, we could offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create in your shared website hosting account. Unlike many Internet hosting companies which run everything on just a single machine, we have an entire cluster that handles solely the databases and nothing else. Because of this, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also immense as we can add more web servers anytime if needed. This way your Internet sites could keep growing with no limitations. You can easily import or export any database regardless of its size using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to handle your databases. If you'd like assistance, you may always check our video lessons or get hold of our tech support representatives who shall help you with all database-related questions within the hour.
