MySQL is among the most widely used database management systems on the market. A database is a collection of cells with information that are structured in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the data to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and each time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be shown on a specific page. MySQL is quite popular because of its superb performance, simplicity and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites which are developed with a script-driven app require some form of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

Starting or modifying a MySQL database will be easy with any of our Linux web hosting. This can be accomplished using our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel where you can create or delete a database, set up a backup copy with one click or take advantage of the highly effective phpMyAdmin software tool in order to modify cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another hosting provider. You may also enable remote access to any database within your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, to guarantee the safety of your information. If you opt to use any of the script platforms we offer you with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything as our system will create a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you experience any problems to control your databases, you can check our help articles and instructional videos or get in touch with our technical support.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans due to the fact that we have the newest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to quickly set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
