Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website gathers all its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user reviews and so forth are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the more substantial the database becomes and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not function correctly as soon as you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to include new data to improperly performing website or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting
If you buy a Linux shared web hosting package through us, we will never limit the expansion of any MySQL-driven Internet site which you host inside the account as our plans include unlimited database space. Despite the fact that large databases might affect the overall performance of an Internet site irrespective of the type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases can take and for the overall size of a single database. You could run an Internet based store with as many items as you would like or a forum without having to worry you will have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users which you may have. Our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel shall also permit you to import or export databases in your account regardless of their size. If you experience any issues with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to assist you.
