Databases allow dynamic website content and provide much more flexibility in storing and displaying additional content than a basic website. In addition, many web applications (e.g. ecommerce, blogs and forums) use a database to store information.
SQL databases are popular for their speed, reliability and performance. We offer two types of SQL database, MySQL and MSSQL. Most popular web applications require one of these database types. You should check the documentation of your chosen application to see what type of database will be required.
To ensure the best performance from your database, we have a number of specialized servers set up to run databases as quickly as possible. When you add a database to your account, it is automatically created on one of these specialty servers. But don’t worry; it’s still easily accessible from your web space.
