[:D] If you are just a hobbyist trying to gain experience you do not need more than 300 MB for SQL, do you? But if you need more, there are hosting providers that offer more at a fair price. For example, 1000 MB at $10/month at
P.S. It is easy to offer cheap PHP/mySQL hosting. Web hosting provider can install free Linux, free mySQL, free PHP. Windows hosting provider must pay for Windows and for MS SQL. Also ASP.NET sites (and IIS pools) need more RAM.
