Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven website stores all of its information inside a database. Just a few examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the data you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not perform properly when you hit that limit. The results can vary from inability to include new content to inadequately performing Internet site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
Thanks to our custom cloud website hosting platform, we are able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create in your shared hosting account. In contrast to many Internet hosting companies that run everything on a single server, we have an entire cluster that manages solely the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the efficiency better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless as we can easily add more web servers at any time if needed. This way your sites could keep evolving with no restrictions. You can easily import or export any database regardless of its size through the Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to control your databases. If you want help, you may always take a look at our video lessons or communicate with our technical support representatives who shall aid you with any database-related questions within the hour.
