[ Idea 2309] Ability to buy more databases for a one off fee

The option to buy more databases for a one off fee would be nice. Also an option to increase your DB's size for a one off fee.

Yeah - I'll second this. Charging a single payment/database is probably best as you said.

It is? I allways thought is was in combination with the CGI server.

Personally I think 100mb database size is ample, so it's just the multiple DB's I would like to see. Then again, once the system is in place to allow multiple sites to be hosted on the cgi space, it might become more important.

I know you can connect to the database from rumpus.plus.net or humbug.plus.net from external source like another website on another web host but is it actually allowd?

Also why do they give the database servers weird names like humbug and rumpus?

Btw, I was once told that PlusNet do not impose a limit on a database size... they're not really bothered, as long as you don't fill it up with junk.

There are two seperate MySQL database servers, rumpus and humbug.

Names are allmost allways given to machines. You might want to look at the names of the core routers +Net have sometime, it looks like the admins like the Indian.

[ Idea 2309] Ability to buy more databases for a one off fee

Hi there,

I have now raised this internally for consideration on idea 1309. Also, I had to change your thread title slightly to fit the idea number in (just swapped "the option to" with "ability to").

Regards,

Could I have an update on this as to whether its going ahead etc?

I support this idea of having multiple databases in MySQL.... but I don't know if customers should be charged extra because I don't remember reading any limitations on MySQL in the plus.net contract. If I missed it fair enough otherwise it isn't particularly fair on the customer Wink
