As part of our ongoing commitment to improving hosting technologies, we have become a Gold Sponsor of phpMyAdmin, the free and open-source administration tool for MySQL and MariaDB.

Widely used around the globe and the default MySQL manager for the industry-leading cPanel control panel, phpMyAdmin helps website admins carry out a wide range of administration tasks through its user-friendly interface, including creating a database, running queries and adding user accounts.

"phpMyAdmin has proved itself to be a highly effective admin tool that's very popular with our customers, many of whom get access to it through our cPanel and Plesk Hosting solutions. Our sponsorship reflects eukhost's commitment to helping the tool's developers expand its range of features and capabilities, enabling it to be of even greater value as hosting environments evolve," said eukhost Director, Robert King.

The phpMyAdmin team added "We at phpMyAdmin are pleased to partner with eukhost, as an open-source project we depend heavily on our community partners for support to cover our ongoing expenses and help fund future development. We're grateful that eukhost has decided to support our work."

This is the third sponsorship we've entered into in as many years, following the sponsorship of the free SSL certificate provider, Let's Encrypt, in 2020, and the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), a UK charity dedicated to the removal of child sexual abuse content from the internet, in 2021.

We are also preparing to relaunch our forum. Along with our extensive blog and knowledgebase, the community forum is an important resource for our customers and complements our highly regarded 24/7 technical support.

"Our forum is a great way for customers to engage with us and each other to ask questions and solve problems," added Robert King. "The relaunch will make it easier for customers to find useful information and get help."

The phpMyAdmin sponsorship and forum relaunch come at an exciting time us. Together with our parent company, the Hyperslice Group, we have recently moved in to our headquarters in the prestigious Platform tech hub in central Leeds and we have opened our brand new technical office in York. With hiring ongoing we are also currently looking for sites to locate a new, datacentre as part of a 5m development plan.
