If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info inside a database and the bigger the website becomes, the more info it collects. As an illustration, if you start an Internet store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs shall increase whenever you add more goods. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they post, the larger the database. If your Internet sites become popular or you just want to include more content, this might develop into a problem in case that your web hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website can function correctly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the website could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your entire website could simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Shared Web Hosting

We use a cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform and all databases set up in the shared web hosting accounts on it are controlled by a different cluster of web servers, so we've made the decision not to limit the total space they could take. Each database in an account can be of any size, so the development of your sites won't be constrained, due to the fact that we can keep attaching extra servers to the cluster if required for providing both more space and far better load balancing. In the event you run a community forum, for instance, you will not have to worry that a great number of users could join or that they could post way too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom-made Hepsia CP, you'll be able to export or import a database of any size easily.
