In contrast to a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers all of its information inside a database. A few examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the bigger the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site might not perform properly when you reach that limit. The consequences can range from being unable to include new data to poorly performing website or even the website showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts purchased through our company are created on our custom cloud web hosting platform where each part of the Internet hosting service has its own cluster of servers. The databases are not an exception and given that we're able to keep adding extra servers to the cluster that manages them, the space you could use for your databases is virtually unlimited. Thus, you can develop your sites as much as you would like and run any script that requires MySQL without ever worrying you'll reach some cap and that your Internet sites will not work as expected. You'll also be able to freely export and import databases of various size via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. If you have any questions in this matter, you may ask our 24x7x365 technical support to assist you with either one of these tasks.
