MySQL is one of the most widespread database management systems available. A database is a group of cells with info which are structured in tables and the administration system is the software which links the info to a script app. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and every time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be accessible on a specific page. MySQL is really popular due to its superb functionality, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites that are developed with a script-driven application require some type of database and some of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Web Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux shared web hosting will allow you to take care of all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes just a couple of clicks to set up a new database and with just one more click you can back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You shall be able to change the password, delete a database or enable remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you could choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your information. If you wish to see the database content or modify any cell or table using the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be quite simple as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have picked automatically.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our semi-dedicated servers due to the fact that we have the newest version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll be able to quickly set up or remove a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you want to manage the content of a database directly, not through a script, you will have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available in the CP, or using an app installed on your personal computer since we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address through the hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
