All script apps such as forums or web stores save their info inside a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the website information like items, prices, comments, and so on. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it can run on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with big databases. Many popular platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting

Starting or modifying a MySQL database will be really easy with each of our Linux cloud web hosting. That can be accomplished via our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel where you can create or erase a database, create a backup with a single mouse click or take advantage of the highly efficient phpMyAdmin software instrument to change cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another hosting company. You could also enable remote access to any database in your account and select from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, in order to guarantee the safety of your information. If you decide to employ any of the script platforms that we provide with our script installer, you'll not have to do anything simply because our system will create a new database and link it to the website automatically. If you encounter any issues to control your databases, you should check our help articles and training videos or communicate with our tech support team.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting as we have the newest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to easily set up or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with one mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an application set up on your computer as we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an added level of safety against unauthorized access to your info.
