If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its data within a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more info it stores. As an example, if you start an e-store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase whenever you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they post, the bigger the database. If your websites become more popular or you simply want to include more content, this could be a problem if your website hosting account has limited database storage area. The exact effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site can function properly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the site can be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the entire website may simply go offline.

With our services, you can develop your web sites or popularize them as much as you would like without worrying that your MySQL databases will expand too much. Irrespective of the size of a particular database, you'll be able to export or import it easily using your hosting Control Panel.
