MySQL hosting


Gloommonger

Question

Gloommonger

I need to host a small MySQL 5.7+ database in the cloud, unlimited bandwidth on SSD. I started using SiteGround but they use cPanel v66 which doesn't support MySQL 5.7 which I need for JSON data types. They were kind enough to refund my money. It needs to be cheap, around £6 per month and decent support. Any recommendations?

I too like cPanel even though most developers whinge about it and say it's laggy and pointless. It's a shame it's so damn expensive - if you can find a host with a licensing agreement (UK2 used to?) then it works out much cheaper than paying for a cPanel license direct. Unfortunately Linode do not provide cPanel licenses. It's a bit of a catch-22 situation though - most hosts that make a big deal out of re-selling cPanel licenses  tend to appeal to newbies and their servers are often shite. They need to make up the costs somehow.

I prefer bare-bones servers like the ones that Linode provide, they can be deployed in seconds - but they are quite basic, if you don't know what you're doing.

MariaDB is literally no different, aside from some very minor intricacies, to MySQL.

Signed up with Krystal in the end. Converted MySql to MariaDb. They have everything I need for £6 per month. Very impressed so far.

Linode.com, you can get a Nanode for $5 a month, although with cPanel will bump that up to $20 - I'm not sure if you can get cPanel for less than $10 a month now from them directly.

Have you considered using MariaDB instead of MySQL? It's a direct drop-in replacement.

Thanks Spunko, will check out linode. My developer is using MySql, I'll ask if they're happy to move to MariaDb. I like cPanel, makes it easier for me to query the db, but are probably cheaper options.
