If you use a script-driven application for your site, any information that both you and the website users create shall be stored within a database - an accumulation of information, that is arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out by employing special software referred to as database management system and one of the most widely used ones globally is MySQL. A lot of script applications are built to work with MySQL as it is easy to use, it performs very well on a web server and it's also universal as it can function with widely used web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on various web server Operating Systems (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are loads of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones for example Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting
Creating or changing a MySQL database is going to be quite simple with each one of our Linux hosting. This can be carried out using our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel where you can create or remove a database, set up a backup copy with a single mouse click or take advantage of the efficient phpMyAdmin software tool to change cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another hosting provider. You can even enable remote access to any database in your account and select from what IP addresses the connection will be established, as a way to guarantee the security of your data. If you opt to use any of the script platforms that we offer you with our script installer, you'll not have to do anything because our system will create a whole new database and link it to the Internet site automatically. If you experience any difficulties to control your databases, you should check our help articles and video tutorials or make contact with our tech support team.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting due to the fact that we have the most up-to-date version installed on all machines - MySQL 5. Via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you shall be able to quickly create or delete a database, change its password, back it up with a single click or examine the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have 2 options - either working with the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available inside the CP, or using an application installed on your personal computer given that 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 protection against unauthorized access to your data.
