Database Resource Usage

Use of our shared MySQL service is subject to the conditions and restrictions shown below. The conditions do not apply on virtual private servers and dedicated servers.

  • Databases are limited to 20 concurrent connections. While this limit is enforced separately for each username connecting to a database, it is against policy to attempt to use the three usernames alloted to a database to circumvent this limit.
  • Each individual database is allotted up to 1GB of disk space. Pair Networks reserves the right to apply disk usage in excess of 1GB against the account’s disk quota.
  • Databases may only be used in conjunction with Pair Networks hosted accounts. Access to databases from outside our local network is provided strictly for site and database development.
  • Use of our MySQL service to store binary data is discouraged. A 1MB limit on packet size is enforced, as well.

Pair Networks reserves the right to require changes to database designs or usage methods in any case where such designs or methods are found to have an adverse impact on a database server and/or other databases on that server. Pair Networks reserves the right to disable any database determined to be unacceptably harming performance of a database server.

More Information

This policy exists in order to protect the integrity and performance of the database servers for all users.

For projects too database-intensive for the shared database servers, dedicated servers are available.
