If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its information inside a database and the more substantial the Internet site gets, the more info it gathers. For instance, if you launch a web store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase whenever you add more items. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they post, the larger the database. If your Internet sites become popular or you would like to add more content, this might be a problem in case that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the website could perform properly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the site could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your entire site may simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Hosting

If you obtain a Linux hosting package from us, we will never limit the growth of any MySQL-driven site which you host in the account due to the fact that our plans come with unlimited database storage space. Despite the fact that massive databases can affect the overall performance of a website regardless of the type of web hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases can take and for the overall size of a single database. You may run an Internet based store with as many items as you would like or a forum without having to worry that you may have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users which you may have. Our Hepsia web hosting CP will also allow you to import or export databases in your account regardless of their size. If you encounter any issues with the latter, our tech support team is available 24/7 to aid you.
