If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information in a database and the larger the website gets, the more info it gathers. For instance, if you start an Internet store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses will increase whenever you add more goods. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they post, the larger the database. If your sites become more popular or you just want to include more content, this may become a problem if your hosting account has limited database storage area. What the specific effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the website could function adequately, but you may not be able to add any new content; the site can be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the entire website may simply go offline.

With our services, you could expand your websites or popularize them as much as you would like without worrying that your MySQL databases will grow too much.
