I found these two terms in web hosting sites:

1. x MSSQL databases

What they mean by x MSSQL databases. I mean, how much space one MSSQL database have???

2. x Domain pointer

What is domain pointer?


One more doubt is, can we upload content on more than one website through one hosting account?

Please share your views if you have any idea.

Thanks a lot.

Domain Pointer is clear to me now.

Suppose, we are getting 1 domain pointer free wihh my.com, means we can point to any one other website with that DP from my.com.

Still not clear about other doubts.

That's a question you should be asking the hosting provider.

Is it MSSQL or MySQL.

I host two sites on pair. They offer pearl and MySQL. I have 30 MySQL databases available to me, but I only use one. I've never hit an upper content limit.

I also have another site registered under domaindirect.com. They give me a 'pointer' service. They registered and maintain my URL, but I don't host anything on their site. Instead, they point my URL to my pair hosting service. They also forward all emails to mail @ myeamiladdress.com. I believe this is the domain pointing service they talk about.
