Today we have just added a new MySQL server to our shared hosting product to help improve overall MySQL performance. If you are a current shared hosting customer and are experiencing slowness on MySQL, please open a ticket with our support department and they will be able to schedule a time to move your databases over. This database migration would require the database to be taken down for a period of time to assure the data is migrated properly.
Note: If you are using the new MySQL server make sure to specify in any scripts you may be using to access mysql2.steadfast.net, not localhost or mysql.steadfast.net. All newly registered shared hosting accounts will use the new MySQL server by default.
