All script apps like forums or virtual shops store their information within a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the website info such as items, prices, comments, etc. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it works on a variety of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with big databases. A lot of widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

Starting or changing a MySQL database is going to be very easy with each one of our Linux website hosting packages. That can be performed using our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel where you can set up or delete a database, create a backup copy with just one mouse click or use the powerful phpMyAdmin software tool so as to change cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven website from another hosting provider. You could also enable remote access to any database within your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, so as to ensure the protection of your information. If you opt to employ any of the script platforms we offer you with our script installer, you will not need to do anything because our system will set up a new database and link it to the Internet site automatically. If you experience any problems to control your databases, you can examine our help articles and video tutorials or make contact with our tech support team.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages considering the fact that we have the newest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to quickly set up or remove a database, change its password, back it up with one click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your PC since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will need to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
