We use MariaDB on our Shared, Cloud and WordPress hosting packages.

MariaDB is an enhanced replacement for MySQL: it has an improved query optimizer, gets updates regularly, and its overall performance is much better compared to MySQL 💪

You can check the current version of MariaDB used on your server in Hosting → Manage on the left panel:

NOTE:

  • While it’s displayed as MySQL version in hPanel, please keep in mind that it’s a version of MariaDB.
