Due to the fact that script-driven apps store their information in a database, adding more info to this type of site will not result in a larger size of the application files, but in a bigger size of the database the Internet site uses. If you happen to run a WordPress blog, for instance, the disk space that its database employs will grow as you add new posts and website visitors leave responses below them. A growing database may develop into an issue if the web hosting account you use has limited space and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database space. If you reach the limit, you shall not be able to add new content. Other potential results are that your site may not work the way it ought to or that it may not appear online at all, which might result in lost potential clients.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages which we provide use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are managed by their own clusters of web servers. To put it differently, if you use this type of plan, you will no longer have to worry about the size of your databases because there is essentially no restriction for the database space - we may keep adding as many hard disks or whole machines to the cluster as required. Consequently, any MySQL-based web site that you host in the semi-dedicated account can grow without any restrictions. With the phpMyAdmin software tool, which can be accessed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to import or export your databases with a few clicks regardless of how big they are.
