When you use a script-driven application for your website, any info that both you and the website users produce shall be stored inside a database - a collection of info, that's organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most popular ones world-wide is MySQL. A wide range of script applications are created to work with MySQL because it’s simple to use, it performs perfectly on a web hosting server and it's universal as it can perform with well-known web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on several hosting server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including really popular ones for instance WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP that comes with our Linux web hosting service will permit you to manage all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes just a couple of mouse clicks to create a brand new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You shall be able to change the password, delete a database or allow remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you may choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your info. If you wish to view the database content or modify any cell or table using the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications shall also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have selected automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated hosting service as we have the most current version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to easily set up or erase a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you shall have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the CP, or using an application installed on your PC since we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will have to include your IP address via the web hosting account first as an extra level of security against unauthorized access to your data.
