Supercharge Your MySQL database

Increase the speed and reliability of your site by giving your MySQL database its own virtual private server.

Meet MySQL VPS

Your dedicated database

As our premium MySQL database service, DreamHost MySQL VPS uses an isolated Linux-VServer that has resources dedicated to your site.

Locked up tight

Standard MySQL servers share resources with other users, but with MySQL VPS, your databases and resources are protected from other users in the same way a private web server is.

Two ways to MySQL

Here are a few key differences between standard MySQL and MySQL VPS.

Standard MySQL Server
Included with shared and VPS hosting plans by default.
Suitable for small, optimized databases.
DreamHost MySQL VPS
Runs MySQL on an isolated virtual server, without noise from other services.
Perfect for sending large amounts of data between your apps and MySQL.
