Hello, I have a godaddy account which is I bought to test and develop websites. My question is now that I have a project that I want to unleash into the public I would like to know what I can expect of my shared host server. The MySQL databases which are the heart of my site, are hosted in a shared server, and the last thing I want my community to see is the diggeffected Wordpress error screen. I want to know how: How many users [general number] I can provide service too without going over my limit in processing power and quiting on me? Does any one know the general amount of users a basic plan can handle? Or would I be better off to host a a freeBSD system with MySQL at home wit my cable connection with a 50 KB/s upload speed Or is there a webhosting company that only sells a service for MySQL databases I would upgrade my hosting service when I do get more traffic, but would that help me with my databases? Should I just get a better host to host my databases? If you want to see my site its http://www.luconline.com I still have to work on it but I see a launch date in the next week or two. I would say my school has 5k students + 1-2K alumni that I want to help out. Thanks for those who helped, I greatly appreciate it. I have tried to google but I wanted a custom answer to my needs.
