yes actually, "at the same time" means precisely at the same time. but you wont have any problems with say User 1 visits your page at 1:01pm and then User 2 visits 1:02pm. they won't be counted as two as they're not at the same time.

I have ResellerZoom budget plan too but my site is currently online. I have the venus server. One of my sites which isn't much to speak of is www.rescued.us and you can see it's up now. If your looking at ResellerZoom budget hosting then you can use this site to see what kind of load speed you will have.
Now if your thinking about using resellerzoom as a host for your reseller account then please do yourself a favor and go with the Advanced Plan.
I have used them for about 2 years now with very little down time. Your resources are limited on the budget plan but if your just playing around with some html as a hobby then the budget plan is great for that.
They have many servers and not all of the budget guys have been as lucky as those of us on the venus server. I have seen in the resllerzoom forum where many of the budget host have been having problems from time to time. I doubt hardly any of the hosting companies that do budget hosting could do much better though.
That old saying, you get what you pay for, really holds true when it comes to hosting
I was looking at the advanced plan, which is supposed to be for medium sized businesses, however I'm a little confused. I would consider my biggest client a small business, more of an organization really. They host youth baseball and softball tournaments, one in particular, where there will be over 200 teams playing, so between players, parents, coaches, etc, theres potentially a lot of visitors checking on news, scores and pictures.
In the past, this event has caused problems for bluewho (back when they didn't have a lot of problems), and they don't have a max user to database policy that I'm aware of. So this scares me a little.
I guess I could make straight html pages for this tourney (it's only for two weeks), and skip Joomla all together and that would solve my problem. However, I wanted to ask about the fact that ldcdc brought up. I'm thinking at the very max there might be 50 visitors at any given time. If I was using a Joomla site, and people were browsing news posts and a photo album mainly. Do you think it's possible that there wouldn't be more than 16 simultaneous hits to the database?
Maybe that's not a good question, hard to know I assume. How bout this. Would ResellerZoom really care if I were to get 18 or 19 simul. hits once or twice every hour for two weeks out of the year? What would they do? Fine me everytime I went over?
First off - their budget plans are not designed for start up hosting companies as they mention on their site. The main reason for this is their budget servers are maxed out and are slow. Anything other than the buget plans are top notch with great uptime and support. I haven't had any issues.
I have an idea - and Im not trying to state the obvious on this one - but try contacting their sales through live chat from their site. they are really good about explaining their services to you - much better than anyone on here.
16 max SQL connections does not mean you can only have 16 people on your site at a time. Even with 50-60 people on your site at once 16 max SQL connections should be more than enough. in the future please just e-mail [email protected] or [email protected] with your questions. We do not answer sales questions on other peoples sites. Customer service and sales are open Mon - Fri from 9AM to 6PM CST. you can also e-mail [email protected] if you have a technical question.
That, after I told them to look here. ;-)
I just wanted them to have an idea of the conversation, without rewriting it.
Anyway, this answers my question. But like I said, if someone here thinks otherwise, please post.
I still think it's kinda funny though, that the fist sales question was really no different than this one, and I got a totally different answer:
Yes, you are right.
You can't have more simultaneous mysql connection than the number stated in our policy.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.

I respect any company taking the needed percautions against fraudulent charges. Taking these measurements can not only protect the company but their clients as well. I am sorry to hear that you turned away because of their policy.
It is 16 simultaneous connections or at the same time. It does not mean you can't have more than 16 visitors unless those 16 visitors simultaneously clicked to view a thread for example. Both responses are worded differently but mean the same thing.
