how many users a particular application can cope with it's quite difficult to say. It depends on the amount of clicks, on the average processing requirements for each click, and other things.

What we can tell is that there are certain restrictions, for example on the monthly traffic and on SQL database (performing 10 simultaneous at each time and database space).

Apart from these restrictions, it's better to give it a go and keep a close eye on the performance. If it's not enough, you can upgrade to a better package or even consider to install it on a dedicated server where you would have all the resources of the server exclusively for you.

I know it's a rough answer to your question, but there are no exact formulas on this and there is nothing like real test.

Well they have a forum and theres around 400 users i think not sure so thats why i wanted to know if the SQL would take it and how much it would use and i have a SQL but not sure what one here is what it says in SQL Manager

Size Limit Status Server Version
Empty 25 ok mysql5-18.60gp MySQL 5

Would that be ok or would i need to upgrade my SQL? and how many people can connect to the forum at one time ? because that would be effected by the SQL right?
