If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info within a database and the larger the Internet site becomes, the more data it collects. As an illustration, if you launch a web store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs shall increase any time you add more items. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they publish, the larger the database. If your Internet sites become more popular or you just want to include more content, this might become a problem if your web hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the specific effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site may function correctly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the site could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole internet site may simply go offline.
MySQL Database Storage in Hosting
If you obtain a hosting through us, we shall never restrict the growth of any MySQL-driven website which you host inside the account since our packages include unlimited database storage space. Though large databases could have an effect on the functionality of an Internet site no matter what type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all databases could take and for the total size of 1 database. You may run an online store with as many products and services as you'd like or a forum without worrying that you will have to remove old posts or limit the amount of registered users which you could have. Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to import or export databases within your account regardless of their size. If you experience any difficulties with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to help you.
