Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website stores all of its data in a database. A few examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user comments and so on are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the larger the database gets and if your web hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site might not perform properly after you reach that limit. The results can range from inability to include new content to poorly functioning site or even the website showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting
Due to our custom cloud web hosting platform, we can offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases which you create inside your cloud hosting account. Different from many web hosting providers which run everything on one server, we have a whole cluster which handles solely the databases and nothing else. As a result, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also limitless as we can add more web servers anytime if necessary. This way your sites can keep developing with no limitations. You can import or export any database irrespective of its size using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to control your databases. If you would like support, you can always take a look at our educational videos or make contact with our tech support representatives who will aid you with any database-related questions within the hour.
