In contrast to a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site collects all of its information in a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the larger the database becomes and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your website may not function properly when you hit that limit. The effects can vary from not being able to include new content to inadequately functioning Internet site or even the website showing only error messages and not being available at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Cloud Hosting

Due to our custom cloud website hosting platform, we're able to offer unlimited space for the MySQL databases you create in your cloud hosting account. In contrast to many hosting companies that run everything on just a single machine, we have a whole cluster that manages solely the databases and nothing else. Consequently, not only is the performance better, but the cluster capacity is also infinite because we can add more machines anytime if necessary. That way your websites could keep evolving with no limitations. You can easily import or export any database irrespective of its size through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the phpMyAdmin tool, that you can use to manage your databases. If you need support, you can always check our video lessons or make contact with our technical support representatives who will help you with any database-related questions within the hour.
