In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site stores all its data inside a database. A few examples of this sort of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the larger the database becomes and if your hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site might not perform correctly after you hit that limit. The results can vary from not being able to add new content to improperly working site or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting that we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mail messages are handled by their own clusters of servers. Basically, when you use this type of plan, you will no longer need to worry about the size of your databases because there's practically no limitation for the database space - we could keep adding as many HDDs or whole web servers to the cluster as required. Therefore, any MySQL-based website that you host inside the semi-dedicated account could evolve without any restrictions.
