** Number of databases per type of database e.g. Medius Shared Hosting allows 60 MySQL 4 databases, 60 MySQL 5 databases, 60 MS SQL 2005 databases and 60 Postgres 7 databases.

*** Number of mailboxes allowed is based on our Shared Linux NG plans.

The Vhost limit is the maximum number of active connections to your website at any one moment. A user's web browser may make multiple connections to your site in order to load your webpage. The number of connections vary against different browsers ( IE, Firefox, Opera, Safari and so on). A webpage generally consists of a html file, CSS files, javascript files, background images, logos, banners other images, audio and video files. All need to be loaded for your website to render in a users browser when they visit your website.

If you expect your website to be busy a high Vhost limit is good.

For example if you expect to be on the Dragon's Den or are presenting at a conference or demoing your product to a group of people for your business then it's a good idea to think ahead and go with a plan that can handle the increased website traffic and load. There's nothing worse than people not being able to access your website at a crucial time. Plan ahead.

The limits on the linux shared hosting plans are as follows:
Minimus: 50
Medius: 100
Maximus: 150
