Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site collects all of its data in a database. A few examples of this kind of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are gathered in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the info you add, the larger the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your site might not perform properly as soon as you hit that limit. The consequences can range from being unable to add new data to improperly working website or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.

All cloud hosting accounts bought through our company are created on our custom cloud website hosting platform where every single part of the web hosting service has its own cluster of servers.

That way, you could expand your sites as much as you want and run any script which requires MySQL without ever having to worry that you will reach some cap and that your Internet sites won't function as expected. You'll be able to freely export and import databases of any size using your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
