WWW Form, MySQL, Azure Question

I have a free student account on Azure which only allows for 4 connections to my database. I am using this simply for leader boards and am sure I will need to scale up eventually. My question is when I use WWW forms to get data from the leader board is that considered a connection or not.

I am trying to simply understand how much I my have to scale up one day. Also if anyone wants to expand on more complex systems that refer to CCU and I think I have seen the term DTU in places that would be very helpful. Thank you in advance I am new to databases!

hey man , dont waste your time on Microsoft craps , as a second option use php , mysql with unity
