Website transfer form query

I'm a new customer and am filling in the Website Transfer request form. However, I'm stumped over the 'Number of Databases' question. I don't know what this means.

Hi alanaw5_wp,

Thank you for reaching out to us! I'm help to explain how to to find out the number of databases you need to move. This is something your current hosting provider could tell you. Most websites nowadays, use a content management system. Since the data is stored and served to the user dynamically, it uses a database. Typically, one website running something like WordPress, Joomla, Magento, Drupal, or OpenCart would have one database. If you're unsure, you can ask your previous host.

I hope this helps! Let us knkow if you have any further questions.
