    Hello :)

    This is an open-ended question with several potential answers. MySQL is the most-commonly used database management system on cPanel servers. The "best" type of database to use would be the one that best suites the needs of your application.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    It depends what you are looking for in a database as stated. For security, PostgreSQL has stricter access level restrictions if setup properly. MySQL is more frequently used, so you would receive a greater level of support for questions.

    Of note, MySQL has basically been slow for development since Oracle acquired the parent company (see MySQL - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). That might want to be kept in mind. Percona and Maria DB are implementations of MySQL that have continued development.

    You might like to view the following comparison between different types of RDBMS:

    Thanks!
