MySQL is an open source database. Whether you have it depends on the hosting package you have and the information should have been among the list of what is allowed/disallowed. If you still don't know, check the information where you obtained your hosting package and/or put in a support ticket/phone call.

If you have a CPanel, then MySQL my be listed there and ready for install at the click of a button/link by the application installer.

Seems so:

vBulletin is a powerful community solution that makes it easy to add a forum messaging system to your web site. vBulletin is developed using PHP and MySQL (a highly efficient open-source database). This solid back end technology allowed us to develop a product that is both amazingly fast, yet reassuringly stable.
