How To Create Your MySQL Database for Plugins

We strongly encourage you to use the Multicraft MySQL for your plugins and NOT the MySQL database that comes with the web-hosting.  There is a significant performance increase from using a "local" database since its located in the datacenter as your server; so in return there is less latency to retrieve and send data to your database, ultimately increasing response.  Using the web-hosting MySQL is not beneficial since it is not optimized for plugin usage and the web-servers are housed in a different datacenter, thus slowing down response.
 
To create your own MySQL database, simply go to the game panel and click on the "Advance" tab in the navigation menu, and click on "MySQL" database.  The creation will be automated and all your information can be found there.  Picture for reference:
