FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TOPIC
SQL Server Hosting
What is an SQL database?
SQL (Structured Query Language) is the standardized language for communication with databases. A database is an organized collection of digital information, or data, which can be easily accessed and edited by a computer. Databases usually store large quantities of information that are otherwise difficult to manage. SQL server hosting allows you to manage your RDMS (Relational Database Management System) by means of SQL. SQL is known for being simple to use and allows you to retrieve data from databases, edit existing data, create new data, execute queries and delete data. Most data such as blog posts or photo galleries, is stored in a table or spreadsheet format; SQL eases the process of handling this data. In order to perform an action on a database, simple SQL statements are required: common commands include "Select", "Insert", "Delete", "Update" and "Create". There are a number of databases that are supported by SQL, including MySQL, MSSQL and MariaDB – each designed to suit different requirements and needs.
Why might one need an SQL database management system?
These days, with the management of databases becoming more and more complex, SQL database management systems are key to the effective storage and handling of a company or business' important data. For larger companies that require quick and easy recording, editing, updating and deleting of data, a database management system is one of the most effective methods of achieving this. In order to access a database management system, Structured Query Language (SQL) is required for smooth communication. Many medium to large businesses opt for SQL server hosting in order to ease this communication process. By combining both a database management system and SQL hosting, customers can benefit from increased speed, high-performance and maximum security. Databases such as MySQL, MSSQL and MariaDB are some of the most popular options – each of which offers different features to suit the various requirements a business might have.
What is the difference between MySQL, MariaDB and MSSQL database systems?
MySQL, MariaDB and MSSQL are three of the most popular relational database management systems (RDBMS). An RDBMS enables users to manage a relational database, the majority of which use Structured Query Language (SQL) to communicate with databases. They each offer different features for different operating systems.
Unlike the free MySQL database, MSSQL hosting, also known as Microsoft SQL, is a database system that is not open source, but rather sold by Microsoft. It is compatible with Windows and, similarly to MySQL, MSSQL hosting can also be used with both cloud and virtual servers. Aside from the open source aspect, both systems provide a very similar service.
MariaDB hosting was developed by the original creators of MySQL – a benefit of which is the fact that you can switch between the two database systems without any major trouble. Similar to its big brother, it is also open source and is compatible with both cloud and virtual servers. MariaDB hosting supports similar programming languages to MySQL.
