Create a database in MySQL or MS SQL

Complex websites often use a database.

If the hosting environment is based on Linux (such as our standard web hosting), then you use a MySQL database.

With Windows hosting (.NET hosting) you choose an MS SQL database.

When you add databases via the control panel, the correct type of database is automatically selected. You just have to determine the size and name.

Follow these steps in the control panel (for both MySQL and MS SQL):

  1. Go to “My products”> “Web hosting”> Click on “Manage” next to your domain name.
  2. In the menu on the left you choose “Databases”.
  3. Here you see a list of databases (if you already have one). Click on “+ Add”. Choose size, name and password, and click on “Add Database”.

Check for leaked passwords
To prevent hacking of your website, we compare your passwords with passwords known in the haveibeenpwned.com database.
We do this in an encrypted way and never know your entered password.
