If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info in a database and the more substantial the Internet site becomes, the more information it gathers. For example, if you launch a web-based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs will increase as you add more products. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they post, the larger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you just want to include more content, this might be a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database storage space. What the exact effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the site may function properly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the internet site could be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire site could simply go offline.

MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't have any troubles with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server from our company since in contrast to many other companies, we do not run everything on one server. Instead, we use a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of machines is dedicated to handling the databases of our clients. Every time additional power or space is required, we can quickly attach more machines or hard drives to the cluster, so the disk space is practically infinite. With our services, you could expand your Internet sites or popularize them as much as you want without having to worry that your MySQL databases will grow too much. No matter the size of an individual database, you shall be able to export or import it without difficulty using your web hosting Control Panel.
