    Hey everyone.
    I recently created a news site for my middle school that I go to. It's nearly all dynamic PHP and MySQL. The school is currently using 1&1 for their hosting, and I just noticed that they have a 100 megabyte database limit.
    I would prefer if they used godaddy, as their databases don't seem to have such a whimpy limit.
    Do you think that the 100 megabyte max will become an issue in the future?

    BTY, The database will be exactly this -

    story_id : smallint(5) unsigned
    title : tinytext
    author : varchar(40)
    pubdate : varchar(26)
    article : text
    keywords : tinytext

    The database will also not be storing any images, just text.

    i don't think your going to have a problem with 100mb, that would take a lot of records to fill that up

    With that style of database, it's going to take a long time to fill up. I've had some major websites use databases that small, and they were fully db driven.

    Good, now I don't have to worry about the size anymore!
    Thank you both for your help and quick replys!
