Database Resourse Usage


MySQL database access is provided at no additional cost to owners of the following account types: Advanced, Webmaster and High-Availability.

Use of our MySQL service is subject to the conditions and restrictions shown below.

  • Advanced Accounts are allotted one (1) database at no cost. All other qualifying individual accounts are limited to ten (10) databases at no cost. Additional databases can be configured, and will be charged at the rate of $3 per extra database per month. The number of databases will be calculated daily, and a monthly average will be used to determine the charge for that month.
  • No database may be used to act as a "hit counter," or for logging of information distributed nightly in the raw web logs (including but not limited to browser and page referrer information).
  • Databases are limited to 15 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.
  • Advanced Account holders are limited to 1500 queries per hour, of which at most 750 can alter data in the database (such as INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE queries).
  • Each individual database is allotted up to 200MB (megabytes) of disk space. Qubic.Net reserves the right to apply disk usage in excess of 200MB against the account's disk quota.
  • Databases may only be used in conjunction with Qubic.Net hosted accounts. Access to databases from outside our local network is provided strictly for site and database development.
  • Databases may not be used to store binary data (including but not limited to image, multimedia and application files). These files should be stored within the user account and referred to in the database by a "pointer," if needed.

Qubic.Net 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. Qubic.Net reserves the right to disable any database determined to be unacceptably harming performance of a database server.
