MySQL is an open-source relational database management system known for its speed and reliability. It’s based on Structured Query Language (SQL), used to access, manage, and manipulate data. MySQL is widely used in web applications to store data, ranging from small individual projects to large enterprise-level applications.
For example, did you know that web-based content management systems, including WordPress, Craft, and Drupal, all run on MySQL? So, chances are, if you have a website, you’ll need MySQL hosting.
