In comparison with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site stores its information inside a database. A few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, rates, blog posts, user feedback and so on are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you add, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not function correctly once you reach that limit. The consequences can range from being unable to include new content to badly functioning Internet site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting
We use an innovative cloud web hosting platform and all databases set up in the website hosting accounts on it are controlled by a different cluster of servers, so we've made the decision to not limit the total space they can take. Each database inside an account can be of any size, so the development of your websites shall not be limited, due to the fact that we are able to keep attaching extra web servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a discussion forum, for example, you shall not need to worry that way too many users could join or that they may post too many comments. Using our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to export and import a database of any size with no trouble. If you come across any problems with this task, you should check our help articles and video lessons or you could contact our support crew, that is available 24x7x365, including holidays and weekends.
