All script applications such as forums or web stores save their information within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the Internet site data like items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it works on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its fantastic performance even with huge databases. Numerous well-known platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

Starting or modifying a MySQL database is going to be quite simple with any of our Linux cloud website hosting packages. This can be performed through our feature-rich Hepsia Control Panel through which you can set up or erase a database, set up a backup copy with just one click or take advantage of the effective phpMyAdmin instrument in order to modify cells and tables or import an entire database if you are moving a script-driven website from another hosting provider. You could also enable remote access to any database inside your account and select from what IP addresses the connection shall be established, as a way to ensure the protection of your information. If you decide to use any of the script platforms which we provide with our script installer, you'll not need to do anything simply because our system will create a new database and link it to the site automatically. If you experience any problems to manage your databases, you can check our help articles and training videos or get hold of our tech support team.

MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use any script that requires MySQL with all of our Linux semi-dedicated packages as we have the latest version set up on all web servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly create or delete a database, modify its password, back it up with a single mouse click or check out the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to handle the content of a database directly, not via a script, you will have 2 options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available inside the CP, or using an app installed on your laptop or computer given that we support remote database access. For the abovementioned option, you'll need to include your IP address from the hosting account first as an extra level of protection against unauthorized access to your data.
