All script applications including forums or online stores keep their data in a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site info like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it runs on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with big databases. Numerous famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

Starting or changing a MySQL database is going to be easy with each one of our cloud website hosting packages. This can be done using our feature-rich Hepsia CP through which you can create or delete a database, create a backup copy with only one mouse click or use the effective phpMyAdmin software instrument to modify cells and tables or import a whole database if you are moving a script-driven Internet site from another hosting company. You can also enable remote access to any database in your account and decide from what IP addresses the connection will be established, as a way to guarantee the security of your information. If you choose to take advantage of any of the script platforms that we provide with our script installer, you'll not have to do anything as our system will set up a whole new database and link it to the Internet site automatically. If you face any problems to control your databases, you can check our help articles and instructional videos or get hold of our tech support team.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use any script that requires MySQL with each of our semi-dedicated hosting given that we have the newest 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 just a single click or check out the hourly and daily access statistics for it. If you would like to manage the content of a database directly, not via a script, you'll have 2 options - either employing the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, which is available inside the CP, or using an app set up on your laptop or computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you will have to include your IP address through the web hosting account first as an added level of security against unauthorized access to your info.
