MySQL is one of the most widespread database control systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with data which are organized in tables and the administration system is the software which links the info to a script app. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc within a database and every single time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be shown on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its terrific performance, ease of use and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites that are designed with a script-driven application need some kind of database and many of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with each one of the Linux shared web hosting packages we offer. You can create a whole new database from the Hepsia hosting CP and the amount of databases you can have at one time is determined by the package that you opt for. We also offer you advanced options to manage your databases, like a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you'll be able to employ software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our web hosting servers and manage it. For simple administration via the CP we provide the efficient phpMyAdmin tool, which will allow you to change tables or cells and import or export entire databases through a web interface. If you use our 1-click script installer, our system will create a whole new database and link it to the app you have selected automatically, so all you'll need to do to get a script-driven website will be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages due to the fact that we have the most current version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to swiftly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your laptop or computer as we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
