  • Shared host with unlimited SIZE DB?

    for a small forum, no more then 50 users online at any single time... any recommendations for shared hosting which provides unlimited size database?

    There is no such thing and if someone tells you they will do this, it means they are lying and you should avoid them at all costs.

      The only true database size limit would be the limit of your disk space allotted on your account or the hard drives in the server. In either case, there is not such a thing as unlimited.

        to be more percise... a shared host which limits the size of one's DB to the total space allotment provided by the plan. for example, Netfirms provides shared hosting which does this, but they cripple their shared hosting plans elsewhere to make the vB hosting experience horrible. 1&1 may provide a rather large total space allotment, but only allow DB maximum size of 100MB.
