If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its data in a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more information it gathers. For example, if you start an electronic store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase any time you add more items. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they submit, the larger the database. If your sites become popular or you simply want to add more content, this can develop into a problem if your website hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the exact effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the website can function adequately, but you may not be able to add any new content; the site can be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your whole site may simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

We use a groundbreaking cloud hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared hosting accounts on it are handled by an independent cluster of servers, so we've made the decision to not limit the total space they may take. Any database inside an account can be of any size, so the growth of your sites shall not be restricted, due to the fact that we could keep connecting additional machines to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a discussion forum, for example, you'll not have to worry that too many users may join or that they could post far too many comments. When you take advantage of our custom Hepsia CP, you will be able to export and import a database of any size with ease. If you come across any difficulties with this task, you can look at our help articles and video tutorials or you could contact our technical support crew, which is available round-the-clock, including holidays and weekends.
