If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its info in a database and the more substantial the site gets, the more info it collects. For example, if you launch an electronic store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs will increase any time you add more items. The same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they post, the bigger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you simply want to include more content, this can become a problem in the event that your website hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the website can function correctly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the site could be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire site could simply go offline.

All shared web hosting accounts bought from our company are created on our custom cloud hosting platform where each and every part of the hosting service has its own cluster of servers.
