We offer MariaDB databases on all Basic web hosting package or higher. MariaDB is equivalent to MySQL, so it will usually be referred to as MySQL.

Your konsoleH control panel provides access to the Manage MySQL tool which allows you to create, manage and delete MySQL databases. It also provides access to the phpMyAdmin database administration tool. On the main page of the Manage MySQL tool in konsoleH, you will see your database list. This is a list of databases currently created on your domain. If no databases exist, only the database quota will be visible.
