If you use a script-driven app for your site, any data that both you and the website users produce will be stored within a database - a collection of data, that's organized in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is done by using special software known as database management system and one of the most well-known ones globally is MySQL. A wide range of script applications are built to work with MySQL because it is simple to use, it works really well on a server and it is universal as it can function with widely used web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on several hosting server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are literally thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including extremely popular ones for example WordPress, Moodle and Joomla™.
MySQL 5 Databases in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to use script-driven platforms that require a MySQL database with each of the Linux shared packages
that we provide. You can create a new database from the Hepsia web hosting CP and the amount of databases that you can have at the same time is determined by the package that you choose. We also provide you with advanced options to control your databases, like 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 hosting servers and manage it. For easy administration from the CP we provide the highly effective phpMyAdmin tool, that will permit you to change tables or cells and import or export whole databases through a web interface. If you employ our 1-click script installer, our system will create a brand new database and connect it to the app you have picked out automatically, so all you will have to do to get a script-driven Internet site shall be to click on the Install button.
MySQL 5 Databases in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use any script that requires MySQL with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
as we have the newest version set up on all servers - MySQL 5. Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to quickly set up or delete a database, change its password, back it up with just a single mouse click or check the hourly and daily access stats for it. If you'd like to manage the content of a database directly, not by using a script, you'll have two options - either using the web interface of the phpMyAdmin tool, that's available in the Control Panel, or using an application installed on your computer considering the fact that we support remote database access. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to add your IP address from the hosting account first as an additional level of protection against unauthorized access to your info.
