If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info inside a database and the larger the Internet site becomes, the more information it collects. As an example, if you start an e-store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase whenever you add more goods. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they post, the larger the database. If your websites gain popularity or you simply want to include more content, this might be a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database space. What the particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site could perform properly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the website may be viewed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your whole site could simply go offline.

The semi-dedicated plans we provide use a custom cloud platform in which the files, databases and e-mails are handled by their own clusters of machines.
