All script applications including forums or e-stores keep their data within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains the website information such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it operates on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its great functionality even with large databases. Many widely used platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each one of the Linux cloud website hosting packages that we offer you. You can easily set up a completely new database through the Hepsia web hosting CP and the total number of databases that you can have at the same time depends on the package which you opt for. We also provide advanced options to manage your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you'll be able to employ software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our servers and manage it. For simple management through the CP we provide the effective phpMyAdmin software tool, which will permit you to edit cells or tables and import or export entire databases through a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system shall create a brand new database and link it to the application you have selected automatically, so all you will have to do to get a script-driven Internet site will be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated hosting as we have the latest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll be able to quickly create or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the Control Panel, or using an app installed on your personal computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address through the web hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your information.
