I read the documentation on Amazon RDS and the book "Host your website in the cloud - Amazon web services made easy" but did not find the answer for the question: is it possible to create more then one database in a single instance?
For example, if i have an application that use 5 databases i will need to create and pay for 5 instances or is it possible to add the 5 databases in one instance?
Thanks in advance.

A single RDS DB instance can host multiple MySQL databases.
By creating the first database name, you will make the DB instance available. Then you can connect to the instance directly and use "CREATE DATABASE whatever" to create new databases.
