New VPS, MYSQL question


I just setup a VPS for the first time and am trying to add an MySQL database, I’m in the panel and I’m getting the impression that I have to have a separate VPS for MySQL?

the database shouldn’t be active enough for the need of a separate VPS, is there another way to get a database setup?


A VPS does not come with MySQL

"Please note, unlike regular shared hosting, it doesn’t include free domain registration and MySQL service. For the latter, you can either add a MySQL VPS or a shared hosting plan. "
