Due to the fact that script-driven apps gather their information within a database, adding more content to this type of site won't cause a bigger size of the app files, but in a bigger size of the database the website uses. If you happen to run a WordPress blog, for instance, the disk space that its database uses shall expand anytime you add new posts and site visitors leave comments underneath them. A growing database may develop into a problem if the hosting account which you use has limited space for storage and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database storage area. If you reach the limit, you won't be able to add new information. Other potential consequences are that your website may not work the way it should or that it may not appear online at all, which may result in lost potential clients.
MySQL Database Storage in Website Hosting
We use a revolutionary cloud hosting platform and all databases set up in the website hosting accounts on it are controlled by a separate cluster of servers, so we have decided not to limit the total space they may take. Each database inside an account may be of any size, so the expansion of your sites won't be limited, given that we can keep connecting extra servers to the cluster if necessary for providing both more space and much better load balancing. If you run a community forum, for instance, you shall not have to worry that too many users could join or that they might post way too many comments. Taking advantage of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to export and import a database of any size easily. If you come across any problems with this task, you can check our help articles and video tutorials or you could get hold of our technical support crew, that's available 24/7, including weekends and holidays.
