Unlike a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site collects all its information inside a database. Just a few examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user reviews etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you add, the larger the database becomes and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site may not perform properly after you reach that limit. The end results can vary from inability to include new data to badly functioning site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being accessible 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. Different from many hosting companies that run everything on just a single web server, we have an entire cluster that controls solely the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the overall performance better, but the cluster capacity is also immense as we can easily add more servers at any time if required. That way your websites could keep evolving without restrictions. You can import or export any database no matter what its size using the Hepsia Internet hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to handle your databases. If you'd like assistance, you can always check our instructional videos or get in touch with our tech support representatives who shall help you with any database-related questions within the hour.
