Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site gathers all of its info inside a database. A few examples of such Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback and so on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you add, the bigger the database gets and if your website hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site may not perform properly when you hit that limit. The consequences can range from not being able to add new content to inadequately functioning site or even the site showing only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting
If you acquire a Linux shared website hosting package
from us, we will never limit the development of any MySQL-driven website that you host in the account due to the fact that our packages feature unlimited database space. Even though large databases may have an effect on the functionality of a site irrespective of the type of Internet hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases may take and for the overall size of a single database. You can easily run an Internet based store with as many items as you wish or a forum without worrying that you may have to delete old posts or limit the number of registered users you may have. Our Hepsia hosting CP will also allow you to import or export databases in your account whatever their size. If you encounter any problems with the latter, our tech support is available 24/7 to aid you.
