All script applications like forums or web stores save their info within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the Internet site information like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it functions on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with huge databases. Numerous popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Website Hosting

Our Linux website hosting will enable you to host MySQL-driven websites without any problem as our cloud platform has the latest management system version installed. You shall be able to set up, erase and manage your databases without difficulty via our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. If you wish to migrate an Internet site from another hosting provider, you may use the phpMyAdmin tool which you may access from Hepsia, or you can connect remotely once you have permitted this function for your IP address. In the same way you can even edit certain cells or tables inside any of your databases. Creating a backup is equally uncomplicated and takes only a mouse click on the Backup button for a certain database. This feature will enable you to keep a copy of a website on your computer or to export the content of a particular database, modify it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our semi-dedicated hosting considering the fact that we have the newest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to easily set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you will have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the CP, or using an application set up on your laptop or computer given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to include your IP address via the web hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
