MySQL is among the most widespread database control systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with info that are structured in tables and the administration system is the piece of software that links the info to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on inside a database and every time a site visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is quite popular because of its great functionality, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites that are built with a script-driven app need some form of database and many of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting

You shall be able to use script-driven platforms which require a MySQL database with any of the shared plans which we offer you. You can easily create a completely new database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the total number of databases you can have at one time is determined by the package that you pick out. We also provide advanced options to control your databases, including a one-click backup and remote access. With the latter option you will be able to use software on your computer to connect to a database on our web servers and manage it. For convenient management through the CP we offer the efficient phpMyAdmin software tool, that will allow you to modify cells or tables and import or export whole databases using a web interface. If you take advantage of our 1-click script installer, our system will create a whole new database and connect it to the app you have picked automatically, so all you'll need to do to get a script-driven website will be to click on the Install button.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated plans as we have the most up-to-date version installed on all servers - MySQL 5. Through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP, you will be able to quickly set up or erase a database, modify its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or examine 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 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that is available in the Control Panel, or using an application set up on your personal computer as we support remote database access. For the latter option, you'll need to add your IP address via the hosting account first as an additional level of security against unauthorized access to your information.
