If you use a script-driven app for your site, any information which both you and the website users generate will be stored inside a database - a collection of information, that's arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done by employing special software referred to as database management system and one of the most widely used ones globally is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are designed to work with MySQL because it is easy to use, it performs really well on a web server and it is universal as it can work with widely used web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on various hosting server Operating Systems (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones such as WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.

MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting

You'll be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each of the Linux web hosting services we offer you. You could set up a whole new database via the Hepsia web hosting CP and the amount of databases which you can have at the same time is determined by the package you pick out. We also offer you advanced options to manage your databases, such as a one-click backup and remote accessibility. With the latter option you'll be able to use software on your personal computer to connect to a database on our hosting servers and manage it. For easy management via the CP we provide you with the highly effective phpMyAdmin tool, that will enable you to change cells or tables and import or export entire databases through a web interface. If you employ our 1-click script installer, our system will create a new database and link it to the app you have picked out automatically, so all you will need to do to get a script-driven site will be 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 all of our semi-dedicated services considering the fact that we have the most up-to-date version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to easily set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with one click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you want to handle the content of a database directly, not through a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the Control Panel, or using an app set up on your personal computer given that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you will have to add your IP address through the web hosting account first as an extra level of safety against unauthorized access to your data.
