All script apps including forums or online shops keep their information within a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the site information such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it runs on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with large databases. Numerous widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our shared services will enable you to control all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes only a few clicks to create a brand new database and with one more click you could back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You'll be able to change the password, delete a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your info. If you want to see the database content or edit any cell or table from the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have chosen automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our Linux semi-dedicated services due to the fact that we have the latest version set up on all machines - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to easily create or erase a database, change its password, back it up with one mouse click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you shall have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your personal computer as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you will have to add your IP address through the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
