With our business shared hosting plan you can host unlimited number of domains.

As long as your additional domains do not contain CMS / resource intensive websites you will be ok.
As for unlimited database:
It means you can create as many database as you need we do not limit the number of databases that an account can create . Let’s say you want to install one WordPress and another application that needs database If you have only 1 database you need to put all information in the same DB . It is possible but it can be confusing and is not generally a good practice.

Additional domains or sub domains are not included in the free transfer service. The majority of transfers are completed in less than 48 hours, however, due to the nature of some transfers and depending on how many are currently in the queue, it could take up to 72~96 hours before everything is completed. We support Major control panels , Directadmin, Plesk etc However we mostly accept Cpanel to Cpanel transfer. If you are using a host that does not have any control panel at all we can still help you but please contact us first.
