“Percona Server for MySQL® is a free, fully compatible, enhanced and open source drop-in replacement for any MySQL database.” – https://www.percona.com/software/mys…percona-server

“MariaDB Server is one of the most popular open source relational databases. It’s made by the original developers of MySQL and guaranteed to stay open source.” – https://mariadb.org/

Finding a traditional Shared Hosting company offering MySQL 8 would be a long search and, potentially, fruitless.

I only have experience with their sister company, VPS Mart, but I have been extremely happy with them.

Under Management Features, it specifically says that they support 8.0. These use Kubernetes with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Docker, so they are essentially a fully managed VPS.

That’s all that I can think of at the moment.
