If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information in a database and the bigger the website becomes, the more info it stores. For example, if you start an electronic store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs shall increase whenever you add more items. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they submit, the more substantial the database. If your sites become more popular or you just want to add more content, this may develop into a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database storage area. The particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the site could function properly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the website could be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire website could simply go offline.

Thanks to our custom cloud hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create in your website hosting account. Unlike many website hosting companies that run everything on just a single web server, we have a whole cluster that manages only the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the overall performance better, but the cluster capacity is also inexhaustible due to the fact that we can easily add more servers at any time if required. Thus your websites could keep growing without limits. You could import or export any database regardless of its size through the Hepsia Internet hosting CP and the phpMyAdmin tool, which you can use to handle your databases.
