Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site stores its data inside a database. A few examples of such sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, rates, blog posts, user feedback and so forth are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you include, the larger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website might not work adequately once you hit that limit. The end results can range from not being able to include new content to badly working website or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
We use an innovative cloud hosting platform and all databases created in the cloud hosting accounts on it are controlled by an independent cluster of servers, so we've made a decision to not limit the total space they could take. Every database in an account could be of any size, so the growth of your sites shall not be constrained, given that we can keep attaching additional servers to the cluster if needed for providing both more space and better load balancing. In case you run a discussion forum, for example, you shall not need to worry that a great number of users may join or that they could post way too many comments. Using our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to export or import a database of any size with no trouble. If you encounter any issues with this task, you can check our help articles and video lessons or you could contact our technical support crew, which is available 24/7, including weekends and holidays.
