Business Hosting Database Limit & SSH Import

I'm interested in purchasing a business hosting package but wanted to confirm what the database size restrictions are. I have a database that's ~5GB that I'd like to bring over. If that size is acceptable, am I able to import it into MySQL using SSH? I noticed the size limit question had been asked once and the agent responded with "no limit" but now I'm confused because a sales agent just told me it's 1GB. Can someone please confirm which is it?

@Retired While I cannot speak specifically to the Business Hosting, from a tech perspective for a database that large I would recommend a VPS server over the Business Hosting. 

 

Business Hosting is still a shared server just with more resources and for a database of that size you may want to get in and adjust / tweak the MySQL settings which you cannot do on the business hosting server.
