Chosing the righ hosting for WP project – website + forum

    Hi, I have an idea for a website I’d like to create. I am already making some content and I am looking for the right hosting for me. I think I have found one, but it only offers a single database, although it has unlimited size.

    My question is: If I install wordpress and start posting some articles now, will I be able to later add forum functionality using the same database? Or do I need to install wordpress in a specific way so it would allow for that in the future? Or would I need to pay for additional database?

    The provider I am looking at has great pricing, but adding second DB would almost double it.

    Thanks for any answers.
