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

MariaDB includes the same basic functionality as MySQL, while adding important improvements, such as a query optimizer.

It also gets updated regularly, and its overall performance is much better compared to MySQL.

NOTES:

  • In case you are using MySQL and want to know if your database will be compatible, check this documentation: MariaDB versus MySQL: Compatibility

  • In case you need to use a different type of SQL, you can consider purchasing a VPS plan
