Question on hosts and databases….?
|July 3, 2011||Posted by admin under Hosting Guide|
A frequently-asked query:
Hello, I am a web designer and currently have a business package with 1&1 Internet Ltd.
I have recently been asked to design a website with a blog, but have only recently noticed that I’m only allowed up to 2 databases with my package. This seems an awfully small number! As in..1 more blog/e-comms website and I’ve maxxed it out!
Is this correct? The larger packages allow up to 8 and 15 respectively…but that still doesnt sound like a lot to me. If i made 15 blog sites then I will have maxxed out the maximum package!? That sounds crazy to me. Is it right?
I’ve also considered swapping to a different host- one that’s UK based such as NamesCo or one such as IWD who offer up to 50 databases on their largerst package which is nearly half the price of 1&1 Internet’s largest package. But I’m worried about the difficulties of such an idea. Transferring domain names etc and also the possibility that other web hosts just may not be able to do everything 1&1 does.
Any suggestions please?
Thanks for the help. However, I don’t know how to add more tables to a database. I don’t even know where I can see the database. I just know the blog is using one…..?!
It would be good if I could use the same database for multiple blogs/sites but is that a bit dodgy?
