Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet 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 listings, prices, blog posts, user comments and so forth are stored in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you include, the larger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your Internet site may not work correctly after you reach that limit. The effects can range from being unable to add new information to poorly working site or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we offer use a custom cloud platform where the files, databases and email messages are handled by their own clusters of servers.
