If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data in a database and the bigger the website gets, the more information it gathers. For example, if you start an Internet store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase as you add more items. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they post, the bigger the database. If your Internet sites become more popular or you simply want to add more content, this could become a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database storage area. What the exact effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site could perform adequately, but you may not be able to include any new information; the internet site could be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole website may simply go offline.

Our Hepsia Internet hosting CP shall also permit you to import or export databases in your account whatever their size.
