All script apps like forums or e-stores keep their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the site info including items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it functions on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with massive databases. Many well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux hosting will permit you to manage all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires just a couple of mouse clicks to create a new database and with only one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You'll be able to change the password, remove a database or enable remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you want to view the database content or change any cell or table from the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script you have chosen automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service given that we have the newest version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP, you'll be able to quickly create or delete a database, change its password, back it up with just a single click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your laptop or computer as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will need to include your IP address via the web hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
