    Site performance is dependent on multiple things. No doubt you must have an optimized database , proper server resources , use technologies like nginx , litespeed etc.. as per your website requirements. make sure your server is optimized for resource usages. You need to evaluate all these things after you got your website live , you will have to analyse and monitor the performance.

    If you want to upgrade to MariaDB, you can do this in one click through the WHM... However, I would suggest you take a complete database backup before upgrading to MariaDB..

    Also, after you upgrade, you will need to analyze the MySQL queries and processes to get the best out of the database performance.. There is no hard and fast rule that you can use and it will be 100% work for your infrastructure.. You can use MySQL tunner and MySQL primer to your advantage, but that will only be guidelines..

    Although you might optimized database, but still see the website to perform not that optimal, in such cases, you might also have to consider webserver optimization completely, which may included things like configuring Nginx, LiteSpeed, varnish, etc..

    General recommendations:
        MySQL started within last 24 hours - recommendations may be inaccurate
        Configure your accounts with ip or subnets only, then update your configurat                                                                                                                                                             ion with skip-name-resolve=1
        Adjust your join queries to always utilize indexes
        When making adjustments, make tmp_table_size/max_heap_table_size equal
        Reduce your SELECT DISTINCT queries which have no LIMIT clause
        Performance should be activated for better diagnostics
        Consider installing Sys schema from
    Variables to adjust:
        query_cache_size (=0)
        query_cache_type (=0)
        query_cache_limit (> 1M, or use smaller result sets)
        join_buffer_size (> 256.0K, or always use indexes with joins)
        tmp_table_size (> 16M)
        max_heap_table_size (> 16M)
        performance_schema = ON enable PFS
        innodb_buffer_pool_size (>= 8G) if possible.
        innodb_log_file_size should be (=16M) if possible, so InnoDB total log files                                                                                                                                                              size equals to 25% of buffer pool size.
        innodb_buffer_pool_instances (=1)
        innodb_log_buffer_size (>= 8M)

    You could try adding/modifying the values in your /etc/my.cnf file based on the "Variables to adjust" output. You may also want to consult with a system administrator if you would like additional help tuning the MySQL configuration:
