If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its info inside a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more data it gathers. As an illustration, if you launch a web-based store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses shall increase as you add more items. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they submit, the larger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you just want to include more content, this could become a problem in the event that your hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the exact effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the site can function properly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the site may be displayed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your entire internet site could simply go offline.

Anytime additional power or space is needed, we can just attach more machines or hard disk drives to the cluster, so the storage space is virtually infinite. With our services, you'll be able to grow your web sites or popularize them as much as you would like without worrying that your MySQL databases shall expand too much.
