When you use a script-driven app for your Internet site, any information which both you and the website users create shall be stored inside a database - a collection of information, which is arranged in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software known as database management system and one of the most famous ones world-wide is MySQL. A lot of script applications are designed to work with MySQL because it is easy to use, it works very well on a server and it is universal as it can function with famous web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on various server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are huge amounts of scripts which use MySQL, including popular ones for example WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

Starting or editing a MySQL database shall be easy with each one of our Linux website hosting packages. That can be done via our feature-rich Hepsia CP where you can create or remove a database, set up a backup copy with one mouse click or take advantage of the highly efficient phpMyAdmin software instrument to modify cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven site from another hosting company. You may even enable remote access to any database in your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, as a way to ensure the security of your data. Should you decide to employ any of the script platforms we provide with our script installer, you will not have to do anything because our system will create a whole new database and link it to the site automatically. If you face any problems to manage your databases, you can examine our help articles and video tutorials or get hold of our tech support team.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages given that we have the latest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly create or remove a database, change its password, back it up with one mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have two options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the CP, or using an application set up on your personal computer as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll have to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
