Compared with a static HTML site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site gathers all of its information inside a database. A few examples of such Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user comments etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the larger the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your site may not function correctly as soon as you reach that limit. The end results can vary from being unable to add new info to improperly functioning site or even the site displaying only error messages and not being accessible at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Website Hosting

If you buy a Linux cloud website hosting package from us, we shall never limit the development of any MySQL-driven website that you host in the account because our packages come with unlimited database storage space. Even though large databases may affect the functionality of a site regardless of the type of web hosting, we do not have a limit both for the total space all databases can take and for the total size of an individual database. You could run a web-based store with as many items as you'd like or a forum without worrying that you may have to remove old posts or limit the amount of registered users you can 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 problems with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to aid you.
