Should I install MySQL or MariaDB for WordPress site?

Hi, when installing Hestia Control Panel, it offers both options of MySQL and MariaDB.
I previously all use MySQL for my WordPress site and on the internet people say WordPress uses MySQL.
When I watch on YouTube for tutorials of installing Hestia, I see others select MariaDB instead of MySQL.
Which one should I choose? I’m a little bit confused.

WordPress works fine with either. Only you can decide which is more suitable for you.
