In contrast to a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven Internet site gathers its data inside a database. A few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the content you add, the larger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site may not perform adequately as soon as you hit that limit. The effects can range from inability to include new information to poorly functioning site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting

Because of our custom cloud hosting platform, we are able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create inside your shared hosting account. In contrast to many Internet hosting companies that run everything on a single machine, we have a whole cluster that controls just the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible as we could add more web servers at any time if required. In this way your Internet sites could keep expanding with no limitations. You can import or export any database regardless of its size using the Hepsia hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, you can use to handle your databases.
