MySQL is among the most widely used database control systems available. A database is a set of cells with info which are structured in tables and the control system is the software which links the information to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and each time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular because of its superb functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites that are designed with a script-driven application need some kind of database and some of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with each of the Linux shared hosting we provide. You can easily create a whole new database via the Hepsia hosting CP and the amount of databases which you can have at the same time will depend on the package which you choose. We also offer advanced options to control your databases, including a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you will be able to employ software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our servers and manage it. For easy administration via the CP we provide you with the efficient phpMyAdmin software tool, that will permit you to modify cells or tables and import or export entire databases using a web interface. If you employ our 1-click script installer, our system will create a brand new database and link it to the application you have picked automatically, so all you'll need to do to get a script-driven website is to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting considering the fact that we have the most up-to-date version installed on all web servers - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to swiftly create or erase a database, change its password, back it up with one 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 working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the CP, or using an application installed on your PC as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an additional level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
