In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site stores its info in a database. Just a few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, prices, blog posts, user comments etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the larger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your website might not function adequately when you reach that limit. The effects can vary from being unable to include new data to poorly performing website or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Website Hosting

Due to our custom cloud website hosting platform, we are able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create inside your shared website hosting account. In contrast to many website hosting providers which run everything on just a single server, we have a whole cluster which manages just the databases and nothing else. Because of this, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless due to the fact that we could add more servers anytime if needed. That way your websites can keep developing without limits. You could import or export any database regardless of its size using the Hepsia hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to manage your databases. If you would like assistance, you could always check our video lessons or make contact with our technical support representatives who shall aid you with any database-related questions within the hour.
