We are upgrading database system of our all hosting server accounts by migrating from MySQL 5.6 to MariaDB 10.1, a relational database management system (RDBMS) that provides all the functionality of MySQL 5.6, and more. This migration will improve long-term compatibility with various Content Management Systems such as WordPress, Joomla and includes benefits for our customers by offering added features and performance improvements over Oracle’s MySQL. MariaDB is the community-developed fork of MySQL and, due to its high-compatibility, is a drop-in replacement. This means that the migration will be seamless and your database will continue to run as normal – and you may see an increase in performance as well.
