MySQL is among the most popular database control systems in existence. A database is a collection of cells with info which are arranged in tables and the management system is the software that links the data to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on inside a database and every time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is very popular because of its great functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites that are designed with a script-driven app require some kind of database and some of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

You can easily set up a whole new database through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the amount of databases which you can have simultaneously is determined by the package that you select. We also provide you with advanced options to manage your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you will be able to employ software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our web hosting servers and manage it. For convenient administration from the CP we provide the highly effective phpMyAdmin software tool, that will permit you to change tables or cells and import or export whole databases using a web interface. If you employ our 1-click script installer, our system will create a completely new database and link it to the application you have selected automatically, so all you'll have to do to get a script-driven site shall be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated servers since we have the most current version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll be able to easily set up or remove a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your personal computer given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will need to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your information.
